Do You Want to be This Old?

Filed under: News — DBNewsWorld @ 2:49 PM

Gertrude Baines lived to be 115 years old before she died today in Los Angeles. Apparently she really enjoyed eating lots of fried shit, but by never smoking and never drinking, she lived long enough to look like she ate cigarettes and pissed alcohol.

Baines was born in Shellman, Ga., on April 6, 1894, when Grover Cleveland was in the White House, radio communication was just being developed and television was still more than a half-century from becoming a ubiquitous household presence.

She was 4 years old when the Spanish-American War broke out and 9 when the first World Series was played. She had already reached middle age by the time the U.S. entered World War II in 1941.

Throughout it all, Baines said last year, it was a life she thoroughly enjoyed.”

I’m all for health and longevity, but when I reach the age where I can’t wipe my ass and nothing has an odor any more, I think it’s time to go.
