No, Actually They’re Not

It is unfortunate that an 82-year old man died this week trying to climb Mt Everest. “He had hoped to set a new age record for reaching the summit and prove to the world that elderly people are still strong and vibrant, even after the age of 80.”

Ah… hello? No, actually they’re not. They may be strong and vibrant for their age. More of the story here. (Of course, three years ago, a 76-year old person scaled Everest. But, 76 is the new 56.)
