Don't consider it, then


John Dryden, once an English poet laureate, died on this day in 1700. He wrote:

"When I consider life, 'tis all a cheat,
Yet fooled with hope, men favor the deceit."

On the other hand, this guy is upset about living TOO long. "I would much prefer to be 20 or 30 years younger," says this 104-year-old fossil. Don't we all wish for the good old days?
