    (That, and the calculator has a pretty wide-stroke; there's not much room for diagnostic individuality.)

    Yes, if anything it seems to me that it should be biased toward those of younger age because as time goes on we know more about how to be to stay healthy. For example, I ate at MdDonalds regularly the first two decades of my life. But, I guess the app is going on that younger folks still have time to have more fatal accidents......Yet accidents are more a collective statistic, not an individual statistic. If you get killed at 25, you are no more likely to live to be 80, than 85. But, overall, I think it's pretty illuminating regarding lifestyle choices and how they affect longevity.


    EDIT: However, it's not as biased as I thought. I retook it as a 20 y.o. and still got 94. Damn, I need to have more fun!

    I think I did something wrong. It says I'm already dead.

    Life Expectancy 100

    Not surprising considering my grandparents are still alive and the greats died in their hundreds.

    I will probably outlive my SO

    Methinks your score might be different if they had a clumsiness slider!

    Jenocyde, haven't you heard that, statistically, married people live longer? I'm not sure about that as regards my guy's longevity....sometimes I really want to murder him! I'm sure Ivy's got some statistics at her fingertips...........

    I thought it was reeealllly funny how 'cheating' scored you the least amount of time.

    Yeah, I've heard that statistic, but I don't know where it comes from, where the sample group was taken from, the length of the marriage, quality of marriage, etc... Being married to a cheating bastard is better for your health than being single? Hmpf. I can guarantee that any conniving a-hole I come across in my personal life will not outlive me.

    Jock is right, though. I injure myself quite a bit to be living as long as they are projecting. I literally barely escaped death twice yesterday.

    I don't have any statistics at my fingertips (though I might go hunt some down later) but IIRC the researchers hypothesized that bad marriages in the modern era tend to end, so if you are still married at an older age the chances are fairly great that the marriage is neutral at least and positive at best. Divorced, separated, widowed, and never-married people don't live as long as those who are married (even if it is not their first marriage). The idea being, as I understand it, that if you eventually settle in with someone who suits you for your old age years, you will have more of them.
