    Default 100 ways not to die. lol

    Doctors and scientists are always telling us ways to live longer.
    Usually they involve a healthier diet or lifestyle: that is, eating
    less fat and more vegetables and fruits, getting more exercise, or
    giving up smoking.

    We wholeheartedly endorse these rigorous and unpleasant methods of
    extending life, but our research into centuries of American folk
    wisdom has turned up 100 EASY ways of avoiding death by observing a
    few simple rules in everyday situations. These beliefs come from all
    over this country and were actually collected by students of
    folklore and anthropology.

    None of them were made up. Just remember: if you fail to observe
    these rules, we won't be responsible for the consequences!
