The journey isn't about departing in a well preserved body - but rather to skid in sideways - totally worn out - shouting HOLY SHIT WHAT A RIDE!!!!

I had a minor case of shingles a couple of years ago. It's the same virus that causes chicken pox. I donate blood every now and again and here in Australia, after the shingles has cleared they take a little extra test tube of blood to make chicken pox vacine from the plasma. I think they give it to babies and old folk.
