image for Old People More Likely to Start a World War
Beware: War Mongers

Latest research from the University of Camberwick has shown that people over the age of 85 are more likely to start a serious world war than people half their age.

In a paper published in "Which War" Magazine, top scientists claim that out of 5000 people tested, only the people over the age of 85 had actually started a world war.

The paper went on to suggest that 25 - 45 year olds are more likely to start a conflict, than a full blown war, whilst the under 12s, when not playing peacefully, are inclined to be involved in nothing more than a minor playground skirmish

Dr Grant Submission, heading the report, said, "It shows a clear divide between the attitude of the aged war mongers and a younger, more controlled temperament". In the paper, entitled, "Old People are Violent", it is suggested that a council of pre-pubescent advisors be set up to assist governments in decide if they should start a fight with someone or not.
