    Bad habits key to man's longevity
    (China Daily)
    Updated: 2007-05-21 14:52

    Zhang Shuqing, a centenarian in Pixian, Sichuan, has his own secret for long life - smoking every day and drinking liquor after every meal.

    Zhang, whose daughter died eight years ago, turned 100 on May 7. He lives with his nephew Zhang Chenggui.

    Zhang senior said he started smoking and drinking strong liquor when he was in his early 20s. Since then, he has smoked every day and taken a drink with every meal.

    According to his grandson Xu, Zhang has consumed 15 tons of liquor and more than a ton of tobacco in his lifetime.

    Zhang, who is in good health, has a huge appetite, with a standard meal comprising two chicken legs, a bowl of steamed pork fat and glutinous rice, vegetables and fruit. And he eats the lot in less than 20 minutes.

    Yeah, pork fat just sounds nasty. The closest I want to get to pork fat is bacon, and I eat that only in moderation.

    As for smoking, if they'd legalize pot, I'd give up cigs.

    Beer (not that colored water some call beer) , tequila, and Maker's Mark: Proof that there may be a God and He wants us to be happy.

    HAHAHA! The water beer days- when quantity trumped quality because you had to buy college books. Those were good times. The biggest decision in life back then was do I spend the last of my hard earned money on a case of Milwaukee's Best or the half rack of Budweiser.

    BUD?

    nasty

    miller now that was the ticket.

    I often ended up withy lucky lager , loved those puzzles.

    But now a 24 oz mug of coors light when its 115 in the shade works very well.

    Looking back on my water beer days, my favorite was the green beer on Saint Paddy's day. It was like rubbing alcohol with green food coloring but for 50 cents a pint nobody complained.
