A man celebrates his 100th birthday despite puffing on nearly 300,000 cigarettes and glugging a glass of whisky a day. Maybe Jack Lalanne should of took his advice...

    Maybe if Jack Lalanne lightened up a little, and wasn't so worried about his health or working out, he could of lived longer like this smoker/whiskey drinker!

    I don't think exercising or eating healthy equates to living a longer life. I don't think there's anyway to properly determine how long you're going to live, as your life isn't really in your hands despite what you may think. I think ultimately GOD or the SPIRITS or whatever are in control of when we die. So all this "exercise daily, eat healthy" bullshit is just nonsense. icon_twisted.gif

    Old soldier Arthur Langran - who survived being blown up by a grenade in the Second World War - claims the key to his longevity is doing what everyone tells him not to. The dad-of-two started smoking aged 20 and has gone through at least ten-a-day ever since. That works out at an incredible 292,000 cigarettes. As well as being partial to the odd cigar he also sups a dram of Macallan single malt Scotch right before he goes to bed and credits it for his long life. But his tipple a day over 80 years totals a staggering 900 BOTTLES. He said: "I always say the secret is doing things you're not told to do. I have been smoking since I was 20 and I still enjoy it - and a pipe." Arthur, from Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk, downed pints of ale at his local pub to celebrate the milestone.

    This is a joke, sarcasm- right?

    The God and Spirits part is sarcasm, but generally speaking this whole "green movement", eat healthy , exercise daily bullshit is getting old. Eat what you want, exercise if you feel like it. Ultimately we're all going to die someday. There's no proven way to increase your lifespan. You will die eventually, and there's no way to prevent that from happening.
