    yes, you heard right. Story

    Lonely goat herd, 116

    A 116-year-old Ukrainian goat herd claims his long life is down to never having had sex with a woman.

    Grigoriy Nestor, from the village of Stariy Yarichev, close to capital Kiev, said: "According to my Christian beliefs there is no sex before marriage, so I never had a wife.

    "People that were not married like me live longer. People who get married just argue all the time, and that's not good for your health.

    "I believe that's why I have lived so long, that and the fact I have never been curious.

    "People who know too much always come to a nasty end. Better to stay stupid and not wonder too much about anything."

    He told local newspaper Komsomolskaya Pravda he had only been to school twice when he had visited his local primary school for two days and learned to write his name.

    He added: "The less you know, the longer you live. Ignorance is long life and happiness."

    His entire life has been spent tending his goats, he said.




    Heard this on the news on the radio on Friday. They made the goat jokes too, as I'm sure everyone and their mother has also.

    I searched for 116, virgin, and goat and didn't see any other threads about it, so sorry if its a repost. I will not be held accountable for people who make threads with retarded titles.

    So here's a question - Do you thnik ignorance is bliss?

    Is ignorance bliss? I don't think so. I want to know as much as I can about lots of things. Sure, I'm a little stressed, but who isn't?

    I'm morbidly curious... If he didn't have sex with a woman, what DID he have sex with?

    Also, come on, the guy is illiterate yet knows his age?
    He was supposedly born before the Revolution, so I discount the whole thing on the basis:

    a. The whole thing is a fake given it's in the newspaper 'Comsomol Truth'
    b. The guy doesn't have a clue about his real age due to illiteracy
    c. There are no papers to prove it because they weren't kept at the time for peasants like him (or lost in the tumultuous times)

    116 years!!!
    You realize people forget their birthdays and some times they have to calculate their age, if you ask them about it. And that's by the time they hit 60-70, let alone 116. The guy can't reference the calendar. Or the passport. Or whatever documents he has.

    I highly doubt the whole thing. Let me dig in the source directly, without translation.
