Growing old is a privilege, if you don't grow old you're dead. But tell that to my aches and pains.
When you're young, you're never going to die. That's why you drink too much, have too much sex, and play too much football.
The result of all that is that when you do get old, age is that much worse. your liver's shot from drinking, you've got early onset arthritis because of all the sport and you're broke from having too many children because of all the sex.
Beats me why they don't have schools for Ageing, for the young. The young could then learn how to achieve a cushion- landing into age.
All very nice in theory. But in practice, the young would still carry on pretty much the same.
