Live Longer – eat more fruit

By Jazz - 13 July 2005 16

For a change the Canberra Times has published something interesting and managed to scoop us on this peice of news from the ABS. According to the stats, Canberrans live longer than our stressed out counterparts over the border, exercise more, and smoke less.

its also comes with a warning, apparently we all drink too much.

What’s Your opinion?

I thought Durians were little aliens, kind of like, well, like little aliens…

Or maybe they have something to do with Tom Cruise and his loony religion, which could explain the explosion of Hoff photos!

Its a *hushed tones* conspiracy…..

I thought they were devotees of Duran Duran! I’ve been calling myself a Durian all this time and really it means I stink??????

LG, off to buy some deo.

I thought Durians were devotees of Jamie Durie.

Thumper,
Durian is what happens when a turd humps a crazy ball. Although some will refer to them as the King of Fruit; they are banned in most public places for two good reasons.
1) They stink like pooh.
2) The taste about as good as they stink.

Okay, Google reckons they are the King of Fruits.

I reckon they look like a rather small hedgehog.

What the hell is a Durian?

Durian are both filthy and addictive. The fruit equivalent of cigarettes.

Canberrans who drink too much and don’t eat enough fruit, I salute you!

Jazz,
If you have actually let fresh durian past your lips you are sick sick person. Either that or you have lost your sense of smell…

*reference to ‘back to the future’*

Jazz 4:06 pm 13 Jul 05

oh god, you people are sad. not to mention you are wrecking the stats for the rest of us who know one end of a durian to the other

Thumper 3:58 pm 13 Jul 05

Fruit, um, what’s that?

Absent Diane 2:14 pm 13 Jul 05

I agree there is something about eating bananas which is way too phalic (sp?)

Ralph 2:09 pm 13 Jul 05

I don’t know if this is a bloke thing generally, or more that I might be a bit weird, but I very rarely eat fruit. The reason being is that I feel that eating fruit is a bit effeminate.
