Are you a risktaker?
jump off cliff-motorcycle speed flyer
then this information is not for you
I really admire these abilities
like or unlike---
the knight in the "Seventh Seal"
one look at
looking over my shoulder and
I’m ready to eat my veggies.
Like I always wanted to as a young boy.
Get myself as far as possible
out of the food chain
of eat and be eaten
and tomato juice,
plenty of fruit and flavanoids
black and green tea
and 44% less chance of heart
and cancer problems
That’s for me
