Doing a bit of research on a project that will likely not bear fruit (olives, in this case), and learned that Ian Fleming, author of the James Bond novels, died at age 56 after reportedly drinking a fifth of gin and smoking 75 cigarettes a day (triple-band Morley’s, of course).
We can’t all be Keith Richards.

Whatever… I do that every day at lunch. Pantywaist… 🙂
Yeah…but he was English. Come on.
So is Keith Richards, and he’s still alive. You come on!
Yes, but I suppose the difference between Keith and Ian, you, and me is that the three of us are human.
(sigh) True. I concede the point. Keith Richards is a demigod.
And we don’t have a fabulous house in Jamaica to retire to. Keith probably does, but he’d rather hang out in a coconut tree than “Goldeneye.”
Correction: Fleming actually smoked Moreland cigarettes, a specialty brand blended of three tobaccos (hence the triple band). Ironically enough, Morley’s was the fictious brand that “Cancer Man” smoked in The X-Files.
