Whether it's listening to an iPod, playing video games or keeping up with the news, staying in tune with the times may help people live to 100.

That's some of the advice from a poll of elderly people who were questioned about the secrets of longevity.

Spirituality, a healthy diet, no smoking and being happy were also high of the list of what is important for a long life.

So, fast food is out and you ought to kick the smoking habit. But, will that make you happy?

Now, where'd I put the whisky!

Maybe it just seems longer if you have to live like that. Like on the Simpsons when Bart is bored in school and the clock hands start moving backwards.

Quit drinking, smoking, wild sex and parties, the funeral is tomorrow. :-)

IMO the key to long life is you are doing what makes you happy. TRULY happy. Most people amble through life only telling themselves they are happy . . . .

Pick the right parents, say your prayers, take your vitamins, and obey your wife.

Obeying your wife definately extends one's life ;) Honestly, it's not worth living longer, unless you are happy. And if eating steaks, junk food and deserts make you happy, then live long and prosper :)

I've always loved this. Sure wish I knew who came up with it:

Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways - drink in one hand - chocolate in the other - body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming: Woo Hoo, what a ride!

Yep I agree.

Two or so years ago I spoke to a lady pushing 102, she had goo heaaring, sight and could walk etc to be honest I ddint realise she was so old untill told.

SHe reckoned that to live long as she did the secret was to do pretty much as the moment dictated, I.e do as you want and dont worry!

sorry guys - it's down to the genetics, to some extent it doesn't matter what you do, some people are just going to live longer

I hope I have the "avoid a fatal accident" genes, and maybe even the "don't get hit by a tornado" genes. :)

My Dad's side has the longetivity, and since I have his hairline I expect to be around at least another 30 years. Some days I think about that and it's almost depressing. On the other hand, I do what I like and eat what I feel like eating (had buttered popcorn and black coffee for breakfast today, followed by a few cigarettes). One day at a time makes it a lot easier. Who cares about tomorrow? I mean, I do have plans, but if don't make it until then... so what?

...you ought to kick the smoking habit

I heard a comedian tell this joke.

"I was told that if I quit smoking I can add years to the end of my life. I can see it now, 90 years old, living in a nursing home, having an aide clean my butt, thinking, I should not have quit smoking." :)

I like the old Georgie Jessel joke when he urned 80.

" If I had known I was going to live this long
I would of taken better care of myself"

Smoking is not bad for your health. Far from it. Which is why it is so villified by the drug companies.

The secret to a long life is, to quote an old Taoist sage "eat when you are hungry and sleep when you are tired" it works for me (42, heavy smoker for the past 27 years, and I like several pints of beer a day).

Staying off processed food helps, but if it's natural eat it!

My theory:

Black coffee during the day, red wine at night.

Too much of either on their own can be harmful, but if you take both, they will cancel each other out.

Freudian slip ;)

Right now I would settle on being urned at 80.
