Iron Lungs

Winnie Langley started smoking only days after the First World War broke out in June 1914 when she was just seven-years-old . . .

She has no intention of quitting, even after the nationwide ban forced tobacco-lovers outside.

Speaking at her 100th birthday party, Winnie said: "I have smoked ever since infant school and I have never thought about quitting.

OK, this lady started blowing back lung darts at the age of 7?!?!? Incredible. The Daily Mirror reports that on August 27, 2007, Winnie celebrated her 100th birthday by smoking her 170,000th heater. That makes Winnie's lifetime batting average somewhere around .250. For you math wizzes out there, that's a quarter pack a day for 93 years. For you smokers out there, that's hope.
