How to live forever

Post by Tony.Williams » Sat Apr 15, 2017 12:13 pm

A headline in yesterday's Times: "One 60-minute run can add 7 hours to your life"

According to my sums, that means that if I run for 3.5 hours every day, I'll live forever.

Nice try but I'm afraid it contradicts another law.

The Lord allocates us a number of heartbeats at birth. Once we have used those up it's curtains. Running speeds up the heart - so we die earlier.

Sorry.
Don't blame me - I voted remain :con

Well, to quote Freddie...
And I don't think I would want to.
