    And I bet you still have a better shot at 82 than I do.

    Given my age, genetics, lifestyle, and size, I’d say 60-65ish is a good run.

    When I was a Cub Scout I remember selling those.

    I fry my bacon in lard, honestly, have over 12lbs of the stuff in my fridge right now. If I wasn't too lazy to fry my own chicken I'd use it for that too.

    I'd be fine if 40-45 was my stopping grounds, but I'm in MN, apparently it's a long life kind of place... it's the heat that kills you southerners

    At least on the southern east coast a lot of those areas have a high percentage of retirees from other areas. I would imagine that income and age at retirement skews those figures a bit. I'm in one of the coastal NC counties that has such a percentage.

    Aside from diet I would be willing to bet that there is a difference between blue collar and white collar workers as far as longevity is concerned. Not just from having to work longer until retirement but also from the type of work performed. Truckers and heavy equipment operators are two examples that I can think of off hand.

    Some interesting things to ponder.

    Just wait. In ten years they will have several new age brackets. Obesity, drugs, and poor life choices are going to really start catching up with the country in the next decade. I’m guessing we will be below 70 for the entire country in my lifetime.

    That’s way into third world countries. North Korea is 70.6 according to the WHO.

    My Dad passed away at 73 and my Mother at 93. I figure my time is 83 unless I get hammered by a jealous husband. I’m 74 now.

    I suspect both my grandparents and parents will live to an older age than me. With my string of health issues I figure I will do good to make it to the 70-75 range.
