The Perks of Being Over 50

Snagged from this website:

1. Kidnappers are not very interested in you.
2. In a hostage situation, you are likely to be released first.
3. No one expects you to run -- anywhere.
4. People call at 9 p.m. and ask, "Did I wake you?"
5. People no longer view you as a hypochondriac.
6. There is nothing left to learn the hard way.
7. Things you buy now won't wear out.
8. You can eat dinner at 4 p.m.
9. You can live without sex (though not without glasses).
10. You enjoy hearing about other people's operations.
11. You get into heated arguments about pension plans.
12. You have a party and the neighbors don't even realize it.
13. You no longer think of speed limits as a challenge.
14. You quit trying to hold your stomach in, no matter who walks into the room.
15. You sing along with elevator music.
16. Your eyes won't get much worse.
17. Your investment in health insurance is finally beginning to pay off.
18. Your joints are more accurate meteorologists than the National Weather Service.
19. Your secrets are safe with your friends because they can't remember them, either.
20. Your supply of brain cells is finally down to a manageable size.

Out. Recently had a stress test, shit, didn't like it at all.

Comment by Carl Monster on November 16, 2014 at 7:46am

I heard the term "twilight" used instead of awake, as in they do give you something that keeps you barely conscious.

When I was out cold I got up and nearly vomited on the way home, as the anesthesia made me quite nauseous. May wanna consider that.

Comment by Scott J on November 12, 2014 at 10:28pm

I've been awake for both of mine, found it interesting. 

Comment by Tim on November 12, 2014 at 10:07pm

Pocono Charlie, thanks for the reminder to schedule mine. I'm thinking out cold but awake could be oddly fascinating....

Comment by Pocono Charlie on November 12, 2014 at 9:52pm

Edward: great stats!

Comment by Pocono Charlie on November 12, 2014 at 9:51pm

So I am taking a survey.  

Colonoscopy:

  • Awake
  • Out cold

Your vote?

Comment by Edward Warden on November 8, 2014 at 3:30pm

This morning I had my fourth run this week of over 5 miles, including a 7-mile run Tuesday. This is my best-ever week for running, and yesterday, I did 103 pushups, also a new high. Our bodies are great gifts.

Comment by Native Son on October 31, 2014 at 11:29am

Edward,  You may get away with a few hundred bucks to get the master computer checked and re-coded.  then again, you could have something like my '03 Saturn.  MULTIPLE processors, thankfully not interconnected.  Test at mechanic shows the factory default codes, and it wouldn't accept new codes.  At over $1000 for the part (labor and new codes not included), and the vehicle running, I'm not spending the cash.  OTOH, I just priced the equivalent Chevy to replace the old VUE, and it's in the neighborhood of $35-40K

Comment by Elon Erani on October 31, 2014 at 9:51am

Art. That makes a lot of sense.

Comment by Art on October 31, 2014 at 7:11am
Newsflash - having the gym 'membership' burns no more calories than before you got it! Discipline of getting my sorry butt there is tough to come by. But I've never been disappointed once I got there.
