My Lancet news sub just lead me to the UK Longevity Explorer. For those of you interested in the research,


For those who just want to jump straight in, be aware that it's intended for 40-70 year-olds. Results may vary.


I'm 52 (how that happened is beyond me!) and my result was "your risk of dying in the next five years is equivalent to the average risk for men aged 58 in the UK." Which they state as being 4.2%.


I'll take those odds!

Missing link.


In fact, probably 2 of them - one of the genetic variety.

I'd imagine this is it :





I've never really thought much if at all about my own death, it probably should have happened decades ago but it didn't and I'm, at 65, still breathing, somewhat better since I quit smoking this week :)


I hadn't been back on them for long after a long break, over a decade, anyway, Can't really get interested in them anymore, no choice in the market, they all taste like rubbish and cost a fortune. I suppose the importers of old of fine French and American cigarettes simply could not be bothered to comply with the generic packaging requirements.


Ah well, more cash in my pocket and less aggravation in the house, being I WAS the only smoker :)
