Dang! 100 y/o and still works 5 days a week?! WTF.

Kung fu kick, LOL. Good for him, though.

That generation was full of studs. And the next couple generations. Now our generation is full of guys like this: http://www.greenhousecatalog.com/images/orchid%20growing%20book.jpg and http://www.allspiritfitness.com/library/graphicsR/YogaWimps.gif and especially guys like these: http://www.cmukgb.org/images/activities/mystery/geeks.jpg

You sure are right about not making them like that anymore. My wife's grandfather came over to the states from Sicily when he was about 19. He joined the army and fought in some of the most hellish battles of WW1. He came back to the states and got married, and raised a family. He ran a very successful shoe repair business retiring at the age of 88 only because the city bought out his shop to put in a bus lane on the street. He passed away at 104 years of age.I'll bet the old guy in the article lives to at least 110. God bless him.

yeah, my grandfather was a little old man when I knew him, and seemed sort of soft and a little efeminate by american standards. after fighting in wwi, he took his wife across the world as an emigrant to canada, worked as a porter in a department store and then ran a trading post and a mink farm on an indian reservation for 40 years. talk about a tough old man.

And even in their young days, most of them weren't big and buff and beefy which today is a symbol of strength, rather they were lean and hard and just mentally tough and calloused. Some of those guys could go hard all day long with labor. Maybe not bench 500 lbs. and squat 800 but they could bust their asses all day and fight those big battles. We're lazy today. I wish I could say I was like that. I'm pretty lazy though. Tough but lazy. Necessity is the missing link I guess. And being raised to beleive you're nothing if you're not tough and hardworking. Now the philosophy is often "Eh just do whatever the hell you want" or "Well whenever you get a spare moment take care of this" and then they do it for you....like my mom. ugh I hate it.
We're dumber these days as well, or just too concerned with our own selfishness to do what's right AND smart.
Certainly some areas still got it though.
The problem is we have a lot of leaders like this. And more are on the way.

times have indeed changed...we're all, in general, too lazy and well fed. We're richer than before and have housing over our heads.

older generations? well...it seemed like a struggle to get through the day with working long, hard hours, low income, crap housing and food, and for immigrant families, bad neighborhoods.

Why dont we just bring that all back?? hahaha
