Grandpa you’re a 100 yrs old, where do you want to go?

If turning 100 doesn’t win you the right to celebrate with busty waitresses in tight clothes, Iowa resident John Persinger can’t imagine what does.
The centenarian rang in his entry into the triple digits at Hooters on Wednesday, according to a report by The Des Moines Register. His late wife Vi wouldn’t have objected, since she was a regular with him at Hooters, the infamous chain known for the cleavage it serves up with beer and buffalo wings.
The Register notes that Persinger is one of only a few thousand American men that are 100 or older.
“I don’t know how I did it,” Persinger told the newspaper. “Good living, I guess. A lot of good food. Steaks, fried potatoes.”
The 120-pound World War II veteran and retired diesel mechanic lives alone in a one-bedroom house, according to the Register. His children and grandchildren look in on him often and help him with chores — but mostly he does his own cooking and housework

CDC: At Least 1 in 4 Teenage Girls Has Sexually Transmitted Disease!
A virus that causes cervical cancer is by far the most common sexually transmitted infection in teen girls aged 14 to 19, while the highest overall prevalence is among black girls — nearly half the blacks studied had at least one STD. That rate compared with 20 percent among both whites and Mexican-American teens, the study from the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found.
Among girls who admitted ever having sex, the rate was 40 percent. While some teens define sex as only intercourse, other types of intimate behavior including oral sex can spread some infections.
For many, the numbers likely seem “overwhelming because you’re talking about nearly half of the sexually experienced teens at any one time having evidence of an STD,” said Dr. Margaret Blythe, an adolescent medicine specialist at Indiana University School of Medicine and head of the American Academy of Pediatrics’ committee on adolescence.
