Check out this Longevity Test. I filled it out late last night. I wasn't totally precise, for example I didn't measure my waist and hip ratio. According to this test my life expectancy is 75. Around 1900 that would have been amazing. Today, it is just about average North American life expectancy. I guess I work too much and worry that peak oil is around the corner and the sky is falling any minute. Aubrey, you better hurry up with your research ;-)
