You won’t last so leave a legacy.
A reporter was interviewing a 104 year-old man: “And what do you think is
the best thing about being 104?” the reporter asked.
He simply replied, “No peer pressure.”
If we look at the adult human body at age 40 from head to toe, the list goes something like this:
- Brain cells of the cerebral cortex (the grey matter) are with you from birth.
- Brain cells of the visual cortex (the array of cells in the front of the brain used for vision) are with you from birth.
- Brain cells of the cerebellum (the structures at the base of the brain) are slightly younger than you are.
- Intercostal muscle cells are about 15.1 years old.
- Gut lining cells are about 5 days old.
- Gut cells other than the lining are about 15.9 years old.
- Skin cells are about 14 days old.
- Red blood cells are about 120 days old.
- Bone cells are about 10 years old.
We do not know precisely the average ages of eye-lens cells, heart cells, liver cells, pancreas cells, fat cells, and bone marrow cells.

Lies are inevitable, but getting duped isn’t. When you’re in the presence of a liar, you can often uncover the truth by paying attention to very specific nonverbal cues. You just need to ask the right questions and observe their body language to catch them in the act.
