The Juneteenth article is interesting but whoever wrote the article was certainly long winded. More the story of their discovery than the occasion.

Parasite tripling lifespan? Oh dear god no, not 3 times this crap. The real reason most old folks die is because they want to.

I’m also wondering why the man or his heirs didn’t claim the Duesenberg? I guess he could have just written it off as an old car not worth the trouble and expense in post war Italy.

I want to go to that birthday party too. Oh wait, 5 year olds? Have to take the batteries out of my hearing aids.
