Help Talk botto Off the Ledge

He turns 40 Wednesday November 7. He sounds a bit suicidal. Luckily for him, Europe has stringent gun control laws. Unfortunately they do have enough high ledges for him to hurl himself to oblivion.

Talk botto off the ledge. I tried earlier today. It didn't sound good. I tried the 'hey dude, that's nothing, I'll be friggin FIFTY on Friday' and that didn't seem to cheer him up.

Well botto, if 50 is the new 30, then neither of you are in such dire straits after all. I mean, you might be, but not because of your ages.

Botto, do people really get that old? I thought it was merely an urban legend?!

40 is the new 38.

This is the time to watch "Pro" again, the Aussy rider on the team is 42 and just spanks everyone in high speed crits across the US.
