    One time I was 1,401%. So if you’re wishing for bacteria on your birthday, you can count on your wish being granted.

    May the Lord be with you as He is with me.

    How many people got sick or died after eating cake blown on by birthday celebrant? In the millions? I doubt it, unless the person is hacking and barfing. I doubt few

    Then stop celebrating birthdays when you get to a certain age and your immune system is kaput, or let the rest of the birthday attendants get sick.

    Could the Japanese longevity thing be due to WWll where so many of their men died?

    So I guess my ex could’ve used that phobia excuse, but instead opted to just do her nails, chew gum, and watch General Hospital.

    Take care, may revered centenarian Yamichi “They Say I’m A Hundred Years Old I Lost Count At Around Seventy Or Seventy-Five Or Whenever It Was My Slippers Kept Walking To The Other Side Of The Room” Watanabord be with you, and gesundheit.

    I wanted some context on how significant the over 100 age is as a demographic so I looked up the current population of Japan, and was surprised to find out it’s 126 million, that’s over a third of the population of the United States. That’s pretty interesting considering Japan is only about the size of California, pretty high population density…

    I think that all of you commenters have missed the meaning of the word. All of your examples are of a word with more than one meaning. The example I gave above (cleave) shows that the meanings of the word are opposite of each other. There are other examples, but it’s late and I’m too tired to think of them right now.

    The idea of blowing on a cake, and how it still an accepted practice, confounds me! I took a page from my grandfather — he always clapped his hands together forcefully to put them out. The germaphobe in me like this much better.
