It’s not about fear of heights, more like no fear of stupidity for these Darwin awards candidates.

It’s not the fall that kills em. It’s the abrupt stop at the end.

Why do they die first? Because they want to.

Just think,

if this was women, the government feminist busybodies would be screaming for an end to longevity inequality.

As it stands now, if government was involved in helping men live longer, they would end longevity inquality by killing off women sooner and declaring that men now live as long as women. (and obamacare is a success)

Husbands, on average, die 7 years before their wives.

It's God's way of giving the guy a break before eternity really kicks in.

Why else would all of those men be risking their lives to fix those 'honeydos'?

Men. Gotta love 'em.

They also say married men live longer than single men. They really don’t, it just seems that way.

Or they would simply give women a no credit limit credit card, male mortality rates would spike immediately.

It’s like an object approaching the speed of light (c), the closer it approaches the slower time becomes.

Marriage is the same way, for every additional anniversary, time slows down... then you croak out of sheer exhaustion.

I was going to offer revenge against their wives and adult children.

I’ve seen some of these before but there are some good additions now.

Married men live longer. However, married men are a lot more willing to die.

The guy in the third picture from the bottom must have taken a safety course. He’s using a spotter.

My Dad used to recite this poem to me:

THE HINDUS PARADISE.

Anonymous

A Hindu died a happy thing to do
When twenty years united to a shrew.
Released, he hopefully for entrance cries
Before the gates of Brahma's paradise.
"Hast been through purgatory ? " Brahma said
"I have been married " and he hung his head.
"Come in, come in, and welcome, too, my son
Marriage and purgatory are as one."
In bliss extreme he entered heaven's door,
And knew the peace he ne'er had known before.

Scarce had he entered on that garden fair,
Another Hindu asked admission there.
The self-same question Brahma asked again
" Hast been through purgatory ? " "No-what then?"
"Thou canst not enter !" did the god reply.
He who went in has been no more than I"
"All that is true, but he has married been,
And so on earth has suffered for his sin !"
" Married ? 'Tis well ; for I've been married twice !"
" Begone ! We'll have no fools in Paradise !

Single men tend to eat out a lot....bad for health....home cooked healthy meals, TLC and some pampering go a long way toward a longer life. I married a widower, his cholesterol was out the roof..now under control....I’ve been low cholesterol cooking for a decade before we married. And make him take all the good vitamins he should be taking. And I make sure he does not climb on the roof with out me there. At 72 he does not belong on the roof. My 30 year old can come do that kind of work.

There are a lot more old widows than widowers at my church.........
