I've got more good news and bad news...

First, the good news: More than half of the children born in the year 2000 (in the industrialized countries) will live to age 100. Born today in the United States, that baby could live to 104, according to a new Danish study of 30 countries... and the increase in life expectancy is still rising. We are all living longer with fewer disabilities and better health care.

Now, the bad news: Where the hell are we going to get all the money to support us old and older people? And don't even think about mentioning the movie, Logan's Run.

  1. I don't see how we're going to live as long as that. Half that in the future I think would be good. Heck, I don't believe those studies whatsoever now that I think about it. I know too many people already who are widows and widowers because of all the cancer out there - not to mention those barely hanging on after by pass.
    No, that's not true. The other problem becomes moot.
