Life has to be worth living. If it's not, then the numbers really don't matter.
Free Four. Great, largely unreferenced tune!
77 Feb 2nd, that gives me 4 years.
I wonder if I'll still be isolating.
Just to up the level of fear this thread has generated - the average could go DOWN due to the current plague that is upon us.
Eat, drink and be merry...
I'm 38. I don't drink or smoke. I eat reasonably well. I could get hit by a bus tomorrow and it will all mean nothing. Age means very little so don't get hung up about it.
i thought most american's died in their 50's...
most of my family members became ancient except for my mother who died in her 50's and i am now 50...
All my cousins were dead before they were 40, of natural causes. There are only two of my generation left, my sister (who is 18 months younger) and me.
Grandmother died a decade ago, lived to be 106 years old. Dad died at 82, mother is 86 now. I don't do drugs, don't smoke. But live in a dangerous city, and then there is that virus...
40??? That sucks big donkey twinkies. I’m assuming you’ve found that Guinness has life stretching qualities? Cheers to that!
I don't give a flying .
I'm going to enjoy my life and to hell with what anybody else thinks. You only get one go,it could end tomorrow, why waste it?
Is that the combined gender average or male average?
My father went out right at the average male age of 78 (stats for his birth year), while his mother had gone to just three months shy of a hundred. I looked through our family tree and it's only ok if you're male. Recent research uncovered women, having a double X chromosome, have the ability to keep the cell building error rates down while men do not have that protective redundancy. Averages perhaps a decade longer.
With obesity rates climbing due to hidden sugars replacing fats in 'low fat' foods and increasing environmental chemical loads (such as lawn grass acres under cultivation and chemical treatment exceed all the food crop acres in the US) the projections are pretty poor for everyone. One statistic was that Boomers and younger are likely to out perform at missing the averages of the prior generations, even though other forms of fatalities are reduced from wearing seatbelts/using airbags.
Olden days, most low mortality rates were due to infant and child deaths from diseases. If people survived to adulthood they could get quite old, but the averages were pulled down into the 40s due to the way statistics were rolled up.
Instead strive for
My dad still living...is 93 y.o. and he is in very good health considering his age. His mother died at 89. My mother died at 85 and her mother died at 100 and 1 month y.o. I think we have a good genetic....
My father passed at 62
Grandfather dad’s side passed at 45
Grandfather mom’s side passed at 57
My dad had three kinds of cancer and still made it to 84, I don't see any reason I shouldn't expect a similar number. Hopefully without the cancer.
If you look at the actuarial table you'll see that if you make it to 80, for example, you have an average of 8 years left. That average of 81 takes into account people who die young. In the table in the link below, it says that if you make it to 100, you still have an average of 2.12 years left.
It's gotten a lot better in my lifetime, too. When I was born in 1958, I had a life expectancy of 68 years!
My first mentor cautioned me
You have to finish the race
Gain the check and the trophy
Never be flashy
Well, it was three score years and ten so it’s on the up!
Cheerful git aren’t we!!! Hee hee
same I dont drink and smoke, im 26, could have died 2 days ago if the flood rise up a bit more in my area.
