Our gubmint has done something rather strange.
I am not quite sure how they have done this but in an act of extreme generosity they have given each and every one of us an extra two and a half years of life.
This does beg some questions however. Where have they added them? Do we wind our age back like we do with clocks? Am I suddenly two and a half years younger than I was a week ago? They can hardly add them at the beginning as that would either mean pregnancies would have to last over three years, or else the newborn would have to wait three and a half years before celebrating its first birthday.
The only possible way they can add those years is at the end. But this begs another question: how do we know if we have been granted those two and a half years? Presumably no one can die in the next thirty months and all those who are on their last legs and about to peg it will get a miraculous reprieve, but what after that? Seeing as no one [except maybe the gubmint] can know the hour of their death, how do they know if it has been pushed back for a couple of years and more beyond their allotted time?
Personally I think it’s another scam. They are once more giving the illusion of generosity. It’s a bit like all these “free” things they keep giving us while omitting to mention that we are still paying for them through taxes.
It’s all just spin.
