drink vodka, eat cheese, never marry.. live long. :beer:

Ukraine's 'oldest man' turns 116

By Helen Fawkes
BBC News, Kiev





Hryhoriy puts his long life down to the fact that he never married. A man thought to be the oldest living person in the world is celebrating his 116th birthday. Hryhoriy Nestor was born in what is now Ukraine. The authorities are to mark the occasion by officially recognising him as the oldest person in Ukraine. They say they have documents that prove that his birthday is on 15 March 1891. An attempt is now being made to get him into the international record books.

Hryhoriy puts his long life down to the fact that he has never been married. To mark his birthday, Hryhoriy Nestor is having a small party - just a few friends and family will gather at his home.



Austro-Hungarian 'golden era'

Unlike many people from his village in western Ukraine, Hryhoriy has survived a brutal dictatorship, wars and grinding poverty. In the past, the area was ruled by Poland and the Soviet Union.

But the 116-year-old says that life was best when the region was part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire a century ago.

It was only at the age of 100 that he retired from working as a farm labourer.

He is now looked after by a relative.

Hryhoriy, who still has a full head of hair, says that being single has kept him feeling young.

He recommends a diet of milk, cheese and potatoes as well as the occasional shot of vodka.

Seems to me he was forced to do things for himself and that kept him in shape.

Why do you think women live longer than men, eh?

There was a story in the media here a couple of days ago about a woman who just died. The story claimed she was 128. Not sure where she lived though.

Of what, the fact my balls aren't still in my stomach? That I don't sound and act like a pre-pubescent child? That I don't have a large piece of the forum not liking me?

Dudes, I don't know what kind of history you two have in other parts of BF, and I really don't care either.

What I do care about is that we keep this pettiness out of Foo, m'kay?

Because married men are more likely to be driven to suicide??? And 99.9% of all occupational hazard deaths are men...
