Nidiot: gingerjet: The advice was "inherit good genes"


Glad to see that was covered in the... er...early on (trying to avoid the filter here).

That's all there is to it. Good luck to the rest of you trying to get around what your genes have in store for you.

I got the genes for eating crap food, hating exercise, and sulking. So it's gonna be a short life, but a crabby one.

OhioUGrad: This is Fark, if her advice doesn't involve drinking then what good is it?

I remember seeing some broad on Johnny Carson (long time ago, obviously)., she was 106 or 108 or something....Johnny asked her the secret to her long life and she says "I quit smoking and drinking" so Johnny asks her when.  "On my 96th birthday."

I love that woman.

"Quit. Don't quit. Noodles. Don't noodles. You are too concerned with what was and what will be. There's a saying: "Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, but today is a gift. That is why it is called a "present."
