This was on the Today show today. Interesting what statistics seem to make you live longer.

I would have been in the 90's if I had annual exam. I think the importance there is they find things early and make corrections. I'm going to start!

I ended up with 96. No I didn't answer yes to all of the + questions.

I took another one of these a while back and it gave me until 84 and nothing has changed on my end. Go figure :confused:

Dang guys, I only have 6 decades left. I don't know how I'm gonna fit everything in to these years. Honestly, better not wait too long to get started. We all have one common life-goal accomplished - OWN MC!!!

Any one notice that it says its less healthy to go between diets than smoke a pack a day??

Also substance abuse. Does drinking count?? or is the same as doing heroine.. perhaps i should get the most out of life eh.

What if you are on the smokers diet? I can't believe an eight ball is a bad thing. They must be referring to the Ephedra users! Any one notice that it says its less healthy to go between diets than smoke a pack a day??

I just received a 91 !?! There is no way this body will hold up that long! I'm an organ donor but by that time all the good stuff will have long exceeded it's expected shelf life.

I don't need know stinkin' test. I'm going to live to 100 like good old grandpappy, rest his soul... :friday:

If you research this there is at least some data and historical to every question. This is also statistical, no lightning bolt predictor! Some of these things you can change. I notice many characteristics of the quiz in old people (80-90's) I know.

Gotta love Banana George! :banana: :banana:

Take this survey, and it will give you a death clock so you know to the second (and counting) how much time you have left.

Really makes you feel like you're wasting time watching those seconds tick away.

Death Clock Survey (http://www.findyourfate.com/deathmeter/deathmtr.html)A friend of mine just retired a few weeks ago, he had a similar clock for his retirement for about 5 years.. Maybe I should ask him if he want one of these next...:rolleyes: And we could watch it waste away over some Captain Morgan and Pepsi......:D

That Death clock thing is hookey.It says I'll only make it to 76 and a half, where this one says I'll make it to 84! I'm thinkin they're both wrong. :confused:

I got an even 100. But I noticed the test didn't have anything about a family history of alzheimers or dementia. So when I lose my mind at 71 like Berlin Heck the 1st (Pappaw), I'll have 29 more years of vegetation to look forward to.
