"I think if I ever hit 100 I'll take up hang-gliding and base jumping. Because, hey! what is the reason not to--it's too dangerous and I might die? "


Many years back I used to watch a television cartoon show called "Rocky and Bullwinkle"
which also went by many different names at different times. Anyway, one part of the show
included "Mr. Peabody and his boy Sherman". In the introduction - or ending as I do not
specifically recall - there was a parade of history and confetti flying. And at the tail
end of the parade was a little man pushing a broom with a trash cart - cleaning up the
mess left behind.

I suspect part of the reason I might reconsider hang-gliding or base jumping could be
thoughts of that little guy.
