He espoused the word of God, and only made it to 96? My dad, an atheist, died February 2010 @ [almost] 98. My Mother in Law died Feb 2011 @ 96, and was a part-time, matter-of-convenience, and only-when-appropriate Christian (she was, after all, sorely afraid of death...) and only made it to 95. Hmmm....

So.. the good longevity money's on atheism. I'm stickin' with it then.

Bye bye, Jack. I did respect you. Long Live The Juiceman!

Never. I watch only news, sports and documentaries on TV. Besides, I was not born and raised in US, so maybe he was a big name before I found my way here in the 1990s.

Hi ggalisa. I used to watch his show myself when I was a boy. I think you'll enjoy following along as he demonstrates the exercises. And you'll get in better shape if you are consistent.

God bless.

We all loved Jack back in the 60's and 70's, he was quite the man putting on shows, he was one of the greatest showmen there ever was, we watched him everyday. One time he pulled a boat with his teeth, he was always doing stunts. We had him, and Mohammed Ali, those crazy tennis players, the best bands there will ever be. Johnny Carson, the Amazing Kreskin, going to the moon, and again, the very best music in all of history that will never be surpassed, we had the time of love, free love where everyone dressed according. If you didn't grow up in the 60's and 70's, sucks to be you, and if you weren't in your teenage years when Disco began, you may as well die now, there is nothing for your future to compare, and nothing in your past to go on. Coffee with Jack, you don't know Jack till you woke up watching Jack, what a man.

It will be nice to meet him in heaven one day.

The link didn't work for me. Not sure why you are questioning the pneumonia with rolly-eyes.

Anyway, he has been dead for almost 8 years, so he'd be 104 now!

If I'm doing situps and jumping jacks after I die, I'm clearly NOT in heaven.
