Have you noticed that there seem to be more old women than old men? Statics worldwide confirm that, for whatever reason, women do indeed live longer than men. There are all sorts of theories out there, from genetics to levels of risky activities. Whatever the reason(s), in nursing homes and other places where older people are in the majority, there are usually more older women than older men.
Almost two years ago, I did a post called Why Women Live Longer than Men that featured some funny pictures of men doing some insanely dangerous things in the workplace and in other settings. Several of the pictures showed me driving some work vehicles, and I assure you, I was far safer than everything around me was! Since that post I've come across more pictures that could help explain why men die younger than women do.
I found some pictures that show that men have been acting dangerously for a long time. Here are some old black and white pictures from construction sites in New York City.
This picture gives a whole new meaning to the expression "going out for lunch."
