    I'm not sure years of extensive physical exercise adds to life expectancy tbh. Plenty of sports and ex sports stars die early.

    Still sad news.

      How fortunate for governments that the people they administer don't think

        Just watched 66 highlights http://www.bbc.co.uk/mediaselector/c...bbwm=1&bbram=1

        Was that Stiles who gave away the free kick for Germany's second goal?

            Remember though, Alan Ball was a ginge and they're pre-disposed to being genetically sickly.

              Is there anything in that? The Jocks, especially in Glasgow, seem to have a lower life expectancy than the rest of western Europe.

              Ball's wife died a little while ago. A lot of widows and widowers follow their spouse soon after.

                I think it is more to do with the genetics of red-hair meaning many treatments don't work so well. A good example is anaesthetics: many red-heads don't receive the pain free dental treatment other people do...

                  Yes. Anything you need to know about the young boys in LA. Just ask.
