Sounds like an excellent routine. How's your blood pressure?


Slightly high but controllable at 120 with low dose Lisinopril.Cholestrol OK too though I take a statin as do most folks.

My resting pulse is generally ~60, and I notice that after a workout the BP drops markedly and stays that way for about six hours

No guarantees anywhere. Years ago in my first squadron there were three of us who were inseperable friends In a brief period both Bill and Tom were dead - one day Bill's engine flamed out just after takeoff and a few days later, while Tom and I were working out at the Cecil Field FL gym, Tom started struggling with the bar on a bench and I jumped to grabed it off of him, seeing in him what then looked to me like an epileptic fit or something like that. It turned out he had a burst cerebrial anyeurysm , and died in my arms as the ambulance arrived.

She also considered suing the Federal government because (according to her), the army had encouraged him to smoke and so he perished far far too young.


If her father was a WWII vet, she is, in fact, pretty much correct.

See this link...

Cigarette companies gave them out, but the gov't sanctioned it.

Also, look at this chart. 1914, rates start to rise.

This second chart goes back to 1880. Again....ka-boom.

@roger,
That was in 1962.

During WWI and WWII they were throwing them at enlisted men. They got smokes every day in their rations.

Same with Coca-cola.

Sugar and nicotine....wowsers.

The soldiers not only smoked the cigarettes and drank the Coke themselves, but gave them out to the people of the country they were in, to create goodwill (and buy whatever items and services they wanted)

Both cigarette companies and Coca-Cola both very carefully orchestrated this opportunity for themselves.

General Eisenhower requested Coke build 10 bottling plants in Europe. When the war was over, people were hooked on Coca-cola, and more plants were built. I'm sure Eisenhower and Coke worked together on this, and he got a big piece of the action.

@Foofie,
Sometimes I forget that you aren't joking Foofie... because what you say would be so funny if you were trying to be funny.

Do you really think that the life expectancy for women is decreasing?

Good post Frugal. You posted your own thought that wasn't cut and pasted from an extremist site. I applaud that.

You need to learn about statistical significance and correlation... but baby steps. I think you are making progress (and that is all I can ask).

I can't help it, you libtards are so damn entertaining.

My hope is that you will see the light before you die.

One can lie with statistics. Woman before menopause might be protected, to a degree from heart problems, due to estrogen. Men in the 1950's used to get fatal heart attacks in their '40's and '50's, when smoking and type A behavior was considered de riguer. Plus, women have the double X chromosome, so if one has a mutation, it might be backed up by another X. Men have one X. Not so good, perhaps. Anyway, if women find acting macha fun, they might be shortening their lives? I think a good preventive for women is learning, and affecting the curtsie when ending any communication with a male. Also, calling men, "Sire." [Was Foofie kidding? Quien sabe?]
