A Terrible Human: So my love of roller coasters,fair rides,drugs,riding in cars with drivers who like to do donuts and burnouts,drinking and my wish to one day go skydiving is going to allow me to live longer? fark YEAH,SUCK IT BORING PEOPLE!
kroonermanblack: Without reading the article, could it just be that 'thrill seekers' tend to keep their bodies in actual functioning condition? It's hard to do anything physically taxing when you weight 400 lbs.But I'd also guess they don't go overboard either and become pure muscle/exercise guys.So..they stay active, in good physical condition, eat a balanced diet (usually paired with excess drugs/alcohol?), and stay mentally hooked in to something.Uh, ya, isn't that verbatim what we're told to do to live longer?
