Stay Sharp At Age 100 By Playing Nintendo DS, Like This Woman

Clever Girl

Centenarian Kathleen Kit Connell is unlike most retirees who spend their free time free time golfing or crocheting. No, instead, Connell spends two hours a day playing her Nintendo DS to keep her mind sharp. According to the video’s description, “The grandmother-of-one, who still lives independently, said she has used the Nintendo DS Lite, so much she even wore out her first console and had to replace the computer.” Watch her go. Just don’t ask her to play after 10 p.m.
