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.

I also believe that better technology such as fuel injection and computer controls for ignition(on gas models) has led to smoother more balanced running engines that are easier on cylinder rings and bearings has progressively made cars better.  I think that most people who talk about how great old cars were probably are looking at it mainly from a styling  standpoint or from how much easier it was to work on them.  The braking, handling and ride of the cheapest car today is far better than the cadillac of 40 years ago.  I say this even though I absolutely love most cars older than 1974.

Bob and Edward...talking about car mileage.  My current car is a 2002 VW Jetta wgn diesel.  I've got 433,000 miles on it and it's still running strong.  I put over 320,000 miles on a 1995 Honda Civic VX before selling it to a friend who continued to drive it.  Regular maintenance is the key!  Kinda like our bodies!  Good fuel, get regular check ups, we might last longer than the norm!

Edward

As a comment to your oct 26 comment (The odometer on my '92 Saturn stopped at 178K, and it ran for years after that. I guess they don't make cars like they used to.)  I agree, years ago almost no car would have made it to 178k for the odometer to quit at that point.  I remember as a kid in the 70's when my parent would not even look at a car with 50k on it because it was already mostly worn out.

Thank You Michael, I just turned 50 last month and keep forgetting I am now eligible for a senior discount at some places.  I am still working my way back through the comments, but am enjoying it so far.

Comment by Edward Warden on January 16, 2015 at 8:54pm

Today I came across a picture of me that was taken almost 19 years ago, when I was 34.  I always thought it was the best picture I ever took, and joked that I was glad that I paid the extra $1 for retouching.  I must say, I think that I look better now.  I'm leaner and stronger.  I've lost enough hair that I started shaving my had a couple of years ago, but still, I prefer the way I look now, which comes as a pleasant surprise.

I set my date for next month; I was admonished by the nurse practitioner when I asked about being awake or in twilight; apparently their routine does not include either, and as such I had to coordinate a date to allow for a ride home.     So the decision of awake/out-cold has been made for me.

Comment by Edward Warden on December 6, 2014 at 9:14pm

I did 11 pullups Wednesday, after doing 100 pushups.  I don't think I've done a set of more than 10 pullups since 2007, when I was 45.  My best is 13 or 14, so I may get back there.
