Things to ponder as you age

  • The inventor of the treadmill died at the age of 54
  • The originator of gymnastics died at the age of 57
  • The past world bodybuilding champion died at the age of 41
  • The best soccer player in history, Maradona, died at the age of 60

And then

  • KFC inventor died at 94

  • Cigarette maker Winston died at the age of 102
  • The inventor of opium died at the age of 116 in an earthquake

How did doctors come to the conclusion that exercise prolongs life?

  • The rabbit is always jumping, but it lives for only 2 years
  • The turtle that doesn’t exercise at all, lives 400 years


Have a drink, take a nap, and if you wake up, have bacon and eggs.
