My estimated longevity...

There will probably only be light blogging this weekend. I wrote a couple of big posts last week (one of which was a very long and serious meditation about the 60th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz). Also, after my own success getting funded, I'm helping a colleague get his grant application finished for February 1. However, there have been bits and pieces of things I've been meaning to post for a few days, and this is the perfect opportunity. It's also the weekend, and time for lighter fare. (Don't worry, the serious stuff will start up again no later than Monday.)

Apparently, I'm going to live a long while more, annoying the hell out of everyone--that is, if you put any stock in this test:

I am going to die at 78. When are you? Click here to find out!

I suppose that this is as good a guess as any other. In any case, if it's true, it gives me nearly 40 more years of irritating everyone with my blog...


  1. I did that test. I thought my answer was pretty good. Mine said 70. I thought ..hmm, not bad ..70, for a myasthenic with lupus ..that's not bad ...then realized dad turns 70 in 4 months ...and my dad doesn't seem old at all ... my dad isn't old.

    I've decided that I don't LIKE this test ... 70 isn't all that old after all.

  2. Uh, 67's pretty good, right?

    But I plan to start exercising, cut down on the booze, and take that maths evening class really soon, y'know...
