#2

Good commitment guys, let’s keep it up.

‘…but they still die younger on average than people anywhere else in the UK’.

Toffee, spade, skull and crossbones.


#4

My great-uncle Bill, born in the Gorbals circa 1920 is still going strong. Puts it down to whisky.


#5

It’s always whisky isn’t it. They’ll interview Mary, aged 110, on the news and ask her for the secret to longevity and the answer is always a whisky or six a day.


#6

yeah i mind chatting to one of my all time dogs granda, he was 90, switched on tae fuck and still lived on his own.
what’s yer secret ma man?

well son, i drink a few whisky every day!


#7

He’s got a FB account too, and his grandson puts photos of him. Looks about 70.


#8

My uncle’s probably just stolen the years off all the other old glaswegian men.


#9

roll & square sausage to celebrate I think


#10

my gran’s 88 and still going strong, no medication or fuck all. don’t think she’s eaten a vegetable since the 60s.

subsists purely on tea and biscuits.


#11

I think you just need a reason to keep going. For some that’s a love of whisky, for others it’s biscuits.


#12

In all seriousness though our country is so, so rich and the lack of investment in our poorest areas is a fucking embarrassment


#13

Question: If Scotland left the glorious union of the kingdoms, would this shit get better?


#14

I worked in The Whisky Shop for a wee while and there was an old lady there who would use whisky to treat everything. Midge bite? Whisky! Cold? WHISKY! Just bathe yourself in a big vat of Whisky. I once caught her dabbing some fancy stuff on a cut on her hand.


#16

we better link the journo who wrote that to this thread, sounds like this “research” is a load of baloney


#17

His grandson looks about 70 or he looks about 70 in the photos? I mean if he had kids ~20 and his children had kids ~20 then I guess his grandson would be about 70.


#19

Yeah, sounds about right. Could they have got the cash together to do it though? Like I’m sure there’s a big enough ‘left’ in Scotland that those kind of policies would get a party in to power (a good thing), but in reality could they actually follow through on it?


#20

No I meant my 90 something great uncle looks about 70.


#22

Oh yeah, I have got all confused. :smiley:
