Advice From Old Folks On How To Live Longer • 5

Connor T. Cyborgsighter — Age 91

I am beginning to think that traditional publishers may not be interested in my obviously super useful book Super Useful Tips To Squeeze More Days Out Of Our Meager Human Lifespan. It’s like they are only interested in selling books that will make lots of money. Apparently, they have no interest in helping people live longer. I am convinced that they believe new people will be born to take the place of older people. Ha!

I may have to turn to self-publishing to get my book published. And then when it sells a couple hundred thousand copies, and book publishers take notice, I will laugh at their offers. Until the offers reach the millions. Then I will say, “Alright, if it will get you to leave me alone.”

In the meantime, I will continue to share these useful tips here, one at a time, so you can savor each one. Allow them to soak in and become part of your consciousness. Then incorporate them into your lifestyle.

Here is tip number five:

If you ever step onto a subway train and you see a man in a tattered, shot-up police uniform with half his face missing revealing a skull made of shiny metal with red glowing eyes. And he’s carrying a shotgun. Just turn around and get back off the train.

I don’t see how anyone could argue with that advice. Thank you, Connor.
