Have you already exceeded the life expectancy you had as a child?
As a child, how old did you think you would live to be? Are you already at least that age? How old were you when you first thought about this, and what was the age you thought you would live to be?
As far as I remember I would probably have been around 6 or 7 years old before I considered this. Having to choose as suitable age at which I thought I should live to had to be done by finding out how old the 'old' people around me were and then deciding whether they were old and frail (not good) or old but seemingly in good health (an encouraging prospect to a young person). I'm currently 47. To put a number on an age I'd like to live to, I'd have to say maybe 75. But only as long as I am healthy, reasonably fit, and have my faculties intact. Is that too much to wish for?

I think the US comes out on top; we drive more miles and will therefore have more automobile deaths and we permit gun ownership.The Libs really...
