#1 do it 3 times and you gained more than you have spent, as you only needed to watch this clip 1 time.

See the irony? :D

She needs to get a new wardrobe assistant for picking out her outfits. She looks like a 60's hippie.

Why would you want to live longer? 60-65 years is as good as it gets. Beyond that life just is not worth living. The diseases, illnesses and problems you may and probably will start to attract during later years, just not worth it.

#11 i'm not seeing your sarcasm in texts, maybe i can't feel it or you'r doing it wrong but i kinda think its on my behalf, also sorry i misunderstood your comment. #12 not all beyond 65 get sick and stuff like that, you would be surprised about how many of those who get there live a good and healthy 10-15 more years some even pass 110 believe it or not
