spentmiles: Yeah, because living past 65 is so worth the sacrifice. Starve yourself now so you can fill up on loneliness, poverty, and the ache of unfulfilled dreams. No thanks.The majority of 65+ people I know are shells of their former selves. They can't compete at any physical tasks - even something as non-athletic as golf in which they move the "forward" tees up about 20 yards from the green. They're basically mentally retarded - "I learned a new card game this month! I'm a genius! What's trump again?" And socially, no one wants them around because all they want to do is ask a bunch of idiotic yet personal questions and force hugs on people who don't want them. There's a reason why there used to be a rocking chair in near the window in the attic - so the occasional genetic mishap could sit up there and watch the dust bowl unfold while the rest of the family tried to enjoy their already miserable lives. Now with so many medications pumped into their veins - basically raw stimulants and pain killers - these translucent skin farks get to wander around grocery stores looking terrified that someone might push a cart within three aisles of them. The two things they pray for are death and the chance sighting of a baby, who will stare at them while they make funny faces, only half of which are voluntary.We've got a nightmare coming too - about a hundred million of them are about to leave the larvae stage and become elderly butterflies with enough meds and bionic body parts to live another thirty to forty years. We need to build more concentration camps, like that shiat hole down in Florida, to coral them all up in golf carts and hand-clapping classes. "Yes, yes, you're living a full life - now stand in this line and dance. Smile you fark! We're trying to sell property here!" God bless those retirement account fleecing places - they keep all the old corralled within one walled in place, like a thriving cancer cell. We need more of them to handle the coming oldpoc ...
