in 100 years...

how old do you think the average person will live to be ?

right now I think it is most common to live to the 80s ( right?)

a few hundred years ago, 40 was a common age to live to.

so do you think in about 100 years, it would be common for people to live into the mid 100s or even older?

  • No, the experts have been talking about how life expectancy is actually going back down, with all the obesity and cell phone cancer and such.

  • I don't know, I won't be here for it. At this rate I don't think I'll make it to 40. I want to live to at least 60 though so I can see my DD grow up.
