I'm such a crazy study basically -- have learned is that I. I have to be nice to my son like all the time it's dead man who had warm childhood relationships with their mothers. With mommy took home 87000. Dollars more per year then men whose mothers -- and caring towards them. Had a great month. So it worked out committed -- working out for you -- national side agreement you know and it's admit you had a horrible not -- they don't use the word horrible I apologize. Menu -- -- childhood relationships with their mothers were much more likely to develop dementia when they got older with the bombs. -- I mean they would get to mention I'm right. But I'm saying if they had a bad relationship Kamal on the need cause dementia later in your life -- why well yeah that's over 75 year study they've come up within -- rights.

Have way more sex -- up to aid in their eighty's and ninety's. Where is conservatives that having sex at 68.
