Doctors pondering the recent research on the Grim Reaper’s supposed fastest walking speed (see previous blog) came to the conclusion that we need more information in order to keep us ahead of His Grimness. We should ideally know:
- How fast he can walk and
- How long he can keep up this speed on a daily basis
In Sydney, Australia, a group of doctors and researchers working in geriatric medicine decided to see if they could work out how fast the Grim Reaper walks . . .
Bear with me: they had a valid aim, however morbid it may seem.
The study, in collaboration with the Concord Health and Ageing in Men Project (CHAMP), probed the link between walking speed and mortality in elderly men, humorously supposing that the Grim Reaper has a maximum walking speed and if one was able to walk faster than him (assuming that the Grim Reaper is male), you will be able to outrun death.
