Cambodia News (Kampong Chnang): On November 5, 2019, an 82-year-old man, Noun Tho, died after falling from a palm tree in his village in Kampong Chnnang.

The victim had climbed up the palm tree to cut some branches to make brooms. Unfortunately, for some reason, he fell from the palm tree and died immediately at the scene. His body was found lying lifeless under the tree that evening by one of his grandchildren.
RIP. He had a good innings.

For some reason? Most men approaching the age of Methuselah refrain from such lofty ambition.
The idea that seeing the world is going from place to place to look at obvious things is an illusion natural to dull minds.

I reckon it beats wasting away in a retirement home. Can only imagine what he must have seen during his long life.

Couldn't agree more. When an 82 year old decides scampering up a tree is a perfectly normal part of one's day, one wonders what his younger years must have held for him. At 52 years of age I find carrying a camera while out for a stroll requiring regular recess.

I believe Keith Richards likes climbing palm trees.
There's someone in my head, but it's not me.
