As You Grow Older

This was on my Facebook on August 4, 2015. I am going to expound on it below the list of “Important Facts to Remember as You Grow Older”.

As You Grow Older



I thought that this was interesting to read, because it makes you stop and think, if only for a little while. Then, you can’t help but to laugh at just how ridiculous some of these statements are.

There are eight statements, and I’ll give my interpretation of each.

1.   Death is the number one killer in the world, because everybody in the world is going to die. That’s just what happens to us when our life is done.

2.   Life is sexually transmitted. When a man and a woman love each other, they have sex to show each other how much they love each other by sharing their love with each other. This is necessary in order for a baby to result in the couple’s relationship.

3.   Good health is merely the slowest possible rate at which one can die. This stands to reason, because if you are healthy, then you live a longer life as a result of taking care of yourself in the right way. People that eat properly are sick less often, if at all, than people that don’t take care of their own health.

4.   Give a person a fish and you feed them for a day. Teach a person to use the Internet and they won’t bother you for weeks, months, maybe years. When people learn how to use the Internet on the computer, they are usually so fascinated by it that they become addicted to it and want to use it all the time.

5.   Health nuts are going to feel stupid someday, lying in the hospital, dying of nothing. They will be so healthy that they don’t get sick. Their body simply wears out from living so long.

6.   All of us could take a lesson from the weather. It pays no attention to criticism. The weather cannot go a single day without somebody criticising it in some way or another. It’s too cold, it’s too hot, it’s too light, it’s too dark, it’s too windy, it’s too snowy, it’s too icy, it’s too dry, it’s too rainy, it’s too humid, and on and on, ad infinitum. Like they say, just stay around, and you will get to experience all kinds of weather. The thing is, the weather does not care what anybody says about it, it’s going to do what it wants to do. That’s all there is to it.

7.   In the 60’s, people took acid to make the world weird. Now the world is weird, and people take Prozac to make it normal. For some people, the Prozac has the same effect on them that the acid did on the younger generation in the 60’s. In other words, they are out of their minds from the effects of what they took.

8.   Don’t worry about old age; it doesn’t last that long. It can’t last but for so long because your body and all of it’s parts are wearing out from all the abuse it has taken for so many years.


So like they say, “take it with a grain of salt”, and enjoy life to the fullest. I hope you enjoyed this little bit of getting away from anything serious.
