53, retired at 50. My dad died in his 80s and my mum is 80. So, hopefully, I live to my 80s. Will try to enjoy every year of my life!

65 and change, and still kicking, literally. And taking brekfalls, body rolls etc. Though nowadays prefer doing falls on mats rather than hardwood floors.

Does anyone plan to outlive Ray Kurzweil? Will he achive immortality?

Both my wife and I turn 54 this year, and our plan is to retire next year at 55--double nickles! Can't wait.
