I figured it a strange co-incidence … You see October 1st is Communist China’s birthday and she is 66 years old, born in 1949. And October 2nd is my birthday. I am 49 years old, born in 1966. A nice play on the numbers 49 + 66 as I celebrated my birthday on Mount Yi with Wei, amazed by a giant God of Longevity carved onto the Meng Shan mountains.
How to live longer: This is a quest that goes back to the beginning of recorded time. I suppose how long we live is up to DNA and luck, and our choices in life.
And with constant advances in science and medicine, living another 49 years could be on the cards. But with beer/s in hand and indulging a regular diet of alcohol, I wouldn’t bet on my luck.
