Tips for Living a Longer Life
• My grandfather lived to be over 90 and he smoked, drank and ate red meat every day (of course, he spent last 30 years at hospital hooked up on life-support, but still…)
• If you’re doing something strenuous, and you see a blinding light and hear a choir of angels singing, immediately stop.
• Every day, practice giving yourself the Heimlich Maneuver.
• Recent studies show that smokers who give up cigarettes add years to their life; so if you're currently a non-smoker, you should start take up smoking and then stop.
• If your parents live to a very old age, it greatly increases your chances, so resist the urge to kill them when you’re trying to show them how to work a computer.
• Try not to marry a serial killer.
• According to a research report from the National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration, seatbelts save approximately 13,000 lives in the United States each year, so replace your regular belt with a seatbelt.
• Protect your bones at including at least one calcium-rich food each day as well as praying to Osteoporosis, the god of skeletal health.
• Download a defibrillator app.
• Do not partake in especially risky endeavors, such as cliff-diving, texting while driving or telling me that today’s blog post really blows.
