Hurtling towards the half century mark

I turn 50 on Saturday.  Honestly, I never thought I'd make this far in life.  My mom didn't make it past 50 and my dad barely did.  Three of my siblings never got this far and I nearly didn't make it due to at various times, car accidents, an appendix that got infected and nearly ruptured, and a massive heart attack at age 42.  But here I am, still here.  If only I had life goals figured out early like this kid did:

I knew I wasted too much time on that whole 'getting a job and working' thing.  Ah well, perhaps it's not too late for me, after all I do have the first two things on that list.

I promise to be a fair minded ruler of the world if I do make that third goal on the list.  I'll shower you all with kindness while I hole up in my palatial mansion/under ground lair.

Dr MVM, World Ruler? Sounds ok to me.
Happy birthday for Saturday!

It's not so bad, once you get there. The only worrying aspect is there always some old fucker staring back at you from the bathroom mirror.

Happy pre-birthday. I had mine a few weeks ago, and I'm a year older than you. Getting older sucks, but it beats the alternative. Many more, my friend.
