Long Life: 

A tough old cattleman from Jindabyne [south-east Australia] counselled his granddaughter that, if she wanted to live a long life, the secret was to sprinkle a pinch of gun powder on her oatmeal every morning.  The granddaughter did this religiously until the age of 103, when she died. 

She left behind 14 children, 30 grandchildren, 45 great-grandchildren, 25 great-great-grandchildren, and a 40-metre hole where the crematorium used to be.
