Poverty is the primary constraint on elderly curmudgeons.

In this electronic age, I contacted some sweet young thing who is a friend of a friend in a homicide case and sought some fermented turmeric with lime and mint from her which of course earned me a "go get stuffed" response. Would she have responded quite so bluntly if I had told her its an elixir of youthfulness that acts on an anti-aging gene? Insulin dampens the release of an anti-aging hormone which is why people with diabetes are old and appear to be old and sick. Counteracting this should restore youthfulness in humans as it does in mice.

I don't have any room in this tiny little cardboard box to start fermenting fruits and spices or making healthy wines. I can't go buy half a ton of scientific glassware or run a lab on a tiny ten year old microwave oven.

I don't damn money; I just damn the lack of it.

Is CONgress possibly conflicted about who they were elected to represent?

Elderly? How old are you. Late 70's
is the beginning of elderly, less
that you are a senior citizen.
If you take a risk, you may lose. If you never take a risk, you will always lose.

Senior citizen is two words, elderly is one. When you are huffin' and puffin' with a ticker that is going tock, you say one word instead of two.

Someone in their 60's isn't elderly by
anybodies standards.

Trivia: the guy who is credited with saying "Don't trust anyone over 30." is 75 now.

Still alive -- but obviously not very trustworthy.

That doesn't make them accurate. By
your standards people are elderly
even before they reach retirement
age.

I been guzzlin' that turmeric stuff for weeks now. I can't ferment it but I can quaff it down with gusto by pretending to myself that it is a cocktail.

Next, I is gonna try some of that hydrogen water stuff.

After which I will rig up some rudimentary still or crock pot and ferment the tumeric rather than just quaffing it straight. Its aqueous solubility is almost zilch and its bioavailability is even less than zilch unless its fermented.

After that, its face Mecca and consume flower petals.
