The Longevity Game

i thought this was fun, until it told me i was gonna die in about 25 years.
i need to start exercising again.

anyway, here's the game. it'll tell you an estimate, based on certain questions, of how long they think you will live.

Yes, but I've got quite a head start on you. I have grandchildren older than your children. Glad to know you will be around for a long while, thought.

I'll be 87 which is pretty good. I should do my dad, DH reckons he'll be around until he's 100 just to annoy us!!!!! The thing that made that test sad for me is that if my mum had done it she would have got a fantastic score cause she never smoked or ate junk and didn't drink either and she died of ovarian cancer 2 weeks after her 61st birthday.
