Asked about the secret to his longevity, Mr Rockefeller explained a simple life is the way to go.

  1. Ugh all the comments….fact of the matter is money can buy anything and when your as rich as him laws no longer apply…..yes he’s evil as well as many more things but fact of the matter is this is life this is how it is …life isn’t fair but no matter how much he spends trying to hide from the creator his day will come he knows he’s hell bound but in my opinion this is hell and God will take you threw hell to get you to heaven we just got to remember to keep our heads up and strive to be and do our best because fact is the higher ups already have us set up to fail…

  2. Such a philanthropist and still afraid to die even at this age. Not sure, but seems contradictory. Those who lived well and gave a lot to others go peacefully and maybe decide to give that heart which he can bought to another younger human fellow. Such a hypocrisy. Plus older man afraid of dying was also afraid of living, that matches so he couldn’t live well and in harmony with others. Plus i spit on society in which young die because they can’t have a heart donated and zombie lives expecting to reach age of 200… Wait till his brain collapses, no money can be paid and no doctor found to alive you from this death. You end up helpless facing this death. So, death is inevitable. He should be lucky to reach this age, people die at thirties from heart. These are ultimate life tragedies.
