    *sigh* surprise, surprise 🙁
    You would have thought, considering their ages, they would have known better. Many old people can’t handle balancing on flat ground !!
    *cough* for the record, I am 63 and still climb on rooftops to handle gutter cleans. I do not consider myself to be ‘old’. However, I do of a couple of guys a year older than myself who look and act like they are well into in their 70’s… 🙁

            Even when I’m bad, I’m good? 😉

          • Johnny Alpha

    • Peter Williams

        We grow old, we don’t necessarily grow up …

      • perthaussieguy

        😛 Thank you, I’ll take that as a compliment.
        My birth certificate may say that I’m legally 63 but my mind is considerably younger… as is my outlook and take on Life, the Universe and Everything 🙂

          42 looks like 42 even when you’re 63.

          • perthaussieguy

            Actually, the real answer was 41.9999 recurring but Doug was told to round it up for the story. Editors can be real bastards sometimes

          You’re only as old as your dirtiest jokes

          • perthaussieguy

            My first pick up line …

            You’re the hottest thing since fire. I know it’s not saying much because we discovered it yesterday but still.

    “But what the video doesn’t show is that many of the pensioners ended up hospitalised, with injuries ranging from a broken back and broken ribs through to sprained arms and legs.
    Josef Schriber, 69, says that he was left with a broken back after the man next to him, aged 80, landed on top of him.
    Josef said: ‘The doctors did a great job on fixing me and I’m walking again now although I have a bad back.
    ‘But I really thought I was going to die at the time. It’s me you can hear screaming on the video. It is lucky we are all in good shape, we regularly play volleyball together. It was supposed to be a four-day hiking holiday but it didn’t work out well even though we all thought it was a good idea at the time.’
    He added: ‘I didn’t intend to go so high, but once I was standing on the seesaw people kept saying go higher, go higher, and suddenly I was at the top.’
    Mountain rescue services have since confirmed that several ambulances needed to be called to take the injured pensioners to hospital.

      Darwin at work.

        Probably already have added to the gene pool, so no Darwin.
