    It takes more than a month to get an up-to-date "Today I learned . . . " thread on GXP. How's that for meta?

    Perhaps you can start a "2024 - Today I ate . . . " thread to encourage said lifestyle.

    Age is no bar to being a director of a company:

    "more than 2,200 companies have directors aged 123 years and above"

    "One listed director — at 942 years old — would have been born in the 11th century."
