If I live for an extended length of time and someone asks, I will say something as ridiculous as this.

you have lived for 115 years, what is your secret to long life?

"cook with lard.  smoke no more than 10 menthol cigarettes a day. Shot of whiskey at lunch and two after dinner.  Never go to the doctor."

This was no doubt the gateway drug of immortality that led to SOCIALISTS eating human baby pituitary glands.

Hopefully when the time comes I can remember this gem from Family Guy when someone asked Quagmire what his secret was to looking so young: "Aah, carrots. Sometimes I grind them up in the juice or just eat 'em raw. Or insert them anally. As long as I get 'em into my body somehow." - Quagmire

Just how many chicken brains does it take for a good scramble?

I've always liked JKJ's take on the subject...

And I told him how I came to discover it all.

Then he opened me and looked down me, and clutched hold of my wrist, and then he hit me over the chest when I wasn't expecting it - a cowardly thing to do, I call it - and immediately afterwards butted me with the side of his head. After that, he sat down and wrote out a prescription, and folded it up and gave it me, and I put it in my pocket and went out.

I did not open it. I took it to the nearest chemist's, and handed it in. The man read it, and then handed it back.

He said he didn't keep it.
I said:
"You are a chemist?"
He said:
"I am a chemist. If I was a co-operative stores and family hotel combined, I might be able to oblige you. Being only a chemist hampers me."

I read the prescription. It ran:
"1 lb. beefsteak, with
1 pt. bitter beer
every 6 hours.
1 ten-mile walk every morning.
1 bed at 11 sharp every night.
And don't stuff up your head with things you don't understand."

I followed the directions, with the happy result - speaking for myself - that my life was preserved, and is still going on.

In the present instance, going back to the liver-pill circular, I had the symptoms, beyond all mistake, the chief among them being "a general disinclination to work of any kind."

What I suffer in that way no tongue can tell. From my earliest infancy I have been a martyr to it. As a boy, the disease hardly ever left me for a day. They did not know, then, that it was my liver. Medical science was in a far less advanced state than now, and they used to put it down to laziness.


/I really like the cut of that doctorb's jib!

I'm 48 and have body parts that hurt for no reason already.  Living to 111 sounds miserable.  What can this guy recommend that will kill me off before long before 111?
