Geriatric Synagogues

In the long run we're all dead, and some potato couch friends of mine have done the math for me: if you run often you may live up to ten years longer, but nine of them will be spent running, so perhaps it's not worth the effort. Now, a newly published article in the European Journal of Aging suggests an easier way: go to synagogue! If you do so regularly, you are certain to statistically live longer (whatever that might mean).

And you'll shvitz a lot less. Especially nowadays, when many synagogues have air conditioning.
