The calculator said I'm going to make it to 85. I doubt it.

 You probably will, if not longer.

A friend of mine is a quack and she used to give her patients two years to live. Now it is one year, not because their life span has decreased but because medical science is advancing so rapidly that she has to keep uping the estimates every six months.

I drink to excess, smoke like a chimney, eat anything that strikes my fancy, don't sleep and don't go to doctors. I should have been dead years ago.

So I'm going to live to be 86, but when I'm approaching 82 my health will begin to fail and I'll spend the last four years of my life as a "Heeb feeb"...that's a lousy scenario, all right. Probably won't happen, because Civil War 2.0 will get me first.

If I somehow manage to make it past 2030, that's not a statistical surprise. My mother lived to be 92 and her mother died at 87. On the other hoof, my father died at 82 and his mother lived to be 86, but only one of her seven sons lived that long. The others died at ages ranging from 71 to 82...the average age at which they died was in the mid-70s. If you add my parents' age at death and divide by two, it averages out to 87. So the calculator's calculation is no surprise.

I thought it would have questions about weight and diet and exercise and drinking and drugs and smoking, to make it more realistic. When I was 33, a calculator said my "real age" was 44. But that was when I still drank, smoked tobacco, ate a lot more garbage, smoked more dope, and never walked anywhere or did any yard work or snow removal. I'm older and a lot fatter now, and still eat like a horse, but I eat better stuff, get more exercise, and no longer smoke or drink. And I hardly ever get a buzz on anymore.

But I still think World War III or Civil War 2.0 will shorten the time I have left. Being an old geezer during 2.0 will not be good. but being an OLD old geezer will be even worse. And I'll be too feeble to take part in all the fun.

I'll probably just be yanked out of my wheelchair by some guys with guns and dumped by the side of the road...not even worth a bullet.

It's probably that last habit that'll allow you to live forever. smile

I suspect that the next step will be to move all the Old Folks homes into outer space where the lack of gravity will mean that there won't be any pressure on our arthritic limbs and your carbonised lungs. Apparently the Space Station is noisy and pongs. I am deaf and a gardener so neither of those bother me, but Nytam appears to have the nervous habit of work so he can spend eternity happily pottering around fixing things.
