Secret of long life and a lasting impact.

Postby Trouillogan » Sat Oct 12, 2013 10:57 am

Anyone in the autumn of their years pondering their mortality should take heart from the advice given by a tough old cattleman from Jindabyne (Australia) to his grand-daughter.

The secret to a long life, he counselled, was to sprinkle a pinch of gunpowder on her oatmeal every morning. The granddaughter followed this dictum religiously until her death at the venerable age of 103. She left behind 14 children, 30 grandchildren, 45 great-grandchildren, 25 great-great-grandchildren, and a 40-foot hole where the crematorium used to be.
