That's Just Great

Here, via our friends at AARP, is a list of 50 things everyone should know how to do by age 50. So far, the only thing I can say I've properly learned how to do is fall down (Thank you, Hulk Hogan). I can say from experience that washing the dishes naked or dressing up like Tarzan did not lead to the desired results.

These are the people trying to tell me how to live? Kirk Douglas, Donald Trump, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Suze Orman, Henry Winkler, Kathy Ireland, Al Roker, Wolf Blitzer, Engelbert Humperdinck.

I'll keep trying to manage myself.

My favorite was when they ran an article featuring the wisdom and life lessons of Robin Williams.

The mag came out about one day after he entered rehab for his alcoholism, which of course stemed from his remorse over his nasty divorce which followed an affair he was having with the nanny.

As the saying goes, you can always at least serve as a bad example.

Item number one on that list cracked me up. I could just hear Rodney Dangerfield say, "After 30 years of marriage, any sex is great sex."
