When Will You Die?

Since one of the key elements in FIRE is knowing how long you will survive, thought you might have an interest in a couple of online calculators to help estimate your lifespan:

Disclaimer: Your actual mileage may vary. Keep your tires inflated to the recommended pressure and avoid jackrabbit starts and panic stops.

Re: When Will You Die?

91 in the first quiz (yeah, right!)

84 in the second quiz.* But looking at the analyze choices, I can boost my longevity by .78 years by taking up drinking, and having 2 to 3 drinks a day!

Now there's a strange Rx...

Doctor - "Telly, I'm going to prescribe 2 to 3 drinks a day for you."

Telly - "Uh, what do I take them with?"
