    What age do you think you will live to?

    I would be happy to reach 75 (currently in 20s)

    I've no idea what age I'll live to. I know what I'd like to live to. I'd take 70.

    And last week's message from the Cardiologist that started with, "I can't see retirement for you..." was not pleasant.

    Maybe he meant your ticker is in such good fettle for your age that you'll still be wanting to be working in 30 years?

    With the rate I'm having body parts fixed or removed or replaced, I'm going to be immortal.

    Dad somehow reached 79, I'd take 85

    Re: What age do you think you will live to?

    Right until my late 20's i never thought i would make 30. Used to race bikes, ride too fast on the road, i fully expected to be a statistic. Now i would like to retire before 70 and have ten years of golf etc.. 80 something would do. I don't want to a burden on anyone, so the second I am, I will sort it. Hand me my shotgun boy!!

    mum and dad both made 72 ,but each were not due to old age ,mum was an accidental death while dad was a heavy smoker. im hoping i can reach my 80`s currently 58 [59 in 11 days] so hopefully still time to get to single figure h/cap.
    common sense is so rare it should be classed as a super power.

    Am coming up 60 this year and don't much fancy it being less than another 20
