Mikeyworld: StoneColdAtheist: The secrets to a long life?1. good genes (can't help you there)2. get and keep your BMI under 18 (eat a hi-fat, lo-carb diet)3. don't smoke (quit if you do...studies show your longevity returns to normal after 2 years of non-smoking)4. keep your alcohol consumption to no more than 2 servings a dayTo All Ya'll: It's really too late to get in this lottery. You've got the genes ya got. But, if'n ya'll subscribe to the Heinlein method and marry people who's grandparents, or, better yet, great-grandparents are still living. Your lineage could become the long-age standard. You could be the ancester of Lasarus Long, the ageless wonder of "Time Enough for Love". Teach your children that, too.Longer lifetimes will be helpfull in many ways. Your children won't need to be college educated, as the longevity will teach them more than any book. Longer lives will aid in space travel. as the distances will take time to navigate. Returns on stocks will be vastly improved by the length of time your portfolio matures.Think it through before you marry. You'll love the one you're with, in either case.
