View Full Version : 44%
10-05-2005, 11:10 PM
Having reached that appalling percentage of a centuries' age today, (the fifth, actually) it occurred to me, amoungst other recent morbid thoughts, that I completely forgot to properly celebrate the "likely" half way point of my statistical life expectancy. Must have happened while I was still too busy feeling "young"... Ah, well... I just hope they find me cold and hard and next to my boat one day too.
