jesus christ you guys like to run with stuff...wtf relax, i'm entiled to want to retire at 60, like 5 years is a big friggin deal at that age anyway. i'd rather be enjoying time off from work at that age. if i wanted to work till i die, i'd would have kept on doing electrical work. chill out with the accusations, i'm not negative about anything, and i live a far from miserable life. so keep your negative comments to yourself.

I do not have documentation to this but I think that all of us who have been around the industry for awhile could agree with my observations.

Yeah, those young guys sure are way more unhealthy than the older guys. If you can survive to 60 you're almost guaranteed to get to 65, but those 40 to 50 year olds are dropping like flies.

Are those darn kids on my lawn again! 6 o'clock, time for my pills. Turn on the tv; Lawrence Welk is on. I always watch Lawrence Welk on Tuesdays, and McGyver on Thursdays. That McGuyver certainly is a clever young man. He really ought to cut his hair. Now Robert Young always had a neat haircut. He never looked scraggy like these kids today....

Thats why those 40-50 year olds are four times less healthy than 60-65 year olds; if those kids just cleaned up they'd be as fit to fly as a 65 year old!
