Response to H2O Man (Reply #14)

23. Of course, my pugilistic friend

(if I may so presume)... I think the possibility exists that you have even more toughness and stamina than the average, which may have helped out in those salad days.

Another contributor to stress now that didn't exist then, is the continual bombardment of "we're all gonna die" messages from our leadership, our ministers, and our media. The treadmill has been cranked up several notches from 40-50 years ago.
