Trend: Mortality-based planning

Check this out.
It's what actuaries have known all along - that we're all going to die, we might as well embrace the fact. When we find out when that's likely to happen, we can make better choices about our life because we can plan accordingly, knowing how long we've got left to live.

This link is a short questionnaire which predicts what that date might be, and taking into account current behaviors and family health history - even HOW it might happen. Bit of a macabre topic admittedly, but curiousity got the better of me. Of course, if you've ever seen the film "The Ring" you might be left a little uneasy by taking this test. What if seeing the date of your predicted demise imprinted itself on your sub-conscious, and when the date rolls around (hopefully longer than a week) the programming is triggered and you expire. Nah. No chance of that.
