Jim_Callahan: The key to a long life is to realize that age of death is a couple normal distribution functions stacked on top of each other, live in a country with 400 million people that minimizes the acute disease-based function (which skews younger or is near-constant), and hope you get to be one of the lucky thousand or so that top 100 in a given year.

Understanding that it's (a) a statistical function, not a deterministic one and (b) the function is multi-variable might help you be one of said lucky ones without being a worthless waste of pseudoscientific human interest story idiocy, though.

Sounds like you need more bacon.
