One of my Jewish friends pointed out that according to the Hebrew calendar, she did make it 100. She was born on 17 Tevet 5682, and 17 Tevet 5782 fell on December 21, 2021.

I mean, I know she's not Jewish, but still.

She was 100 in Korea, too.

Have they double-checked?

If she went out at 98 i would have been disappointed she didn't make it to a 100, but going out at 99, it was like she decided she had nothing to prove and this was as good a time as any.

I hope I die at an amusing age. Possibly 69. No, 96.

The old 96er.

My family history says I'm dead at around 80-84. Somehow with my habits I'm looking at 65. If I'm lucky.

And that's not that far away.

Without new blood, SE will vanish when we all eventually die.

The good news is that the odds of us all dying together at once are steadily increasing.😅

Mental note:
If invited to SE get together by steele, do not attend. Apparently he has plans.

It'll be fine. Just leave the kool-aid alone.
