… but not from me! (God forbid I have an original idea of my own that I don’t openly steal from DailyKos, right?)
Eric Idle on turning 62 today (From Men’s Health)
“They say aging is a funny thing. But there’s nothing funny about it at all. You still feel 14, but when you turn on the bathroom light, this ugly old guy in the mirror leaps out at you. Forget all the advertising crap about the golden years; that’s just bull–to try to get you to put your money into real estate. Retirement-living homes are thinly disguised golfing camps. That’s another warning sign of old age: golf. It’s nature’s way of telling you you should be dead.
One or two final tips. Don’t read newspapers. They’re not just bad for trees. Don’t watch TV news. Look at those anchors in their wigs and ridiculous hairdos. Can you trust people who are lying about their appearance? Same goes for TV evangelists. If God wants money, he’ll take it. That’s why he’s God.
Just keep pissing in your pajamas and complaining about everything. That’s the great benefit of old age.”
