Things that make me go “BAHAHAHAHA!”

(and then have some pie)

If you’re skinny at age 40, you’re statistically likely to live 5 years less than your slightly chubby counterparts

I would guess this is because as you age, your muscles and bones maintain themselves better because you have more to carry around (but not enough to overlard, er, overload your heart). Also, those fat reserves can come in handy in emergencies, etc. Still, it does seem a bit counter-intuitive.

Anyone want a pop-tart?
