I don't have any number in mind; I just want to be healthy & functional .. and die fast, when that's no longer the case.


hmm..my attempt at editing the quote didn't work out like I planned. 

Anyway, I fully agree.

How long do you want live? 80, 90, 100?

Do you have a number in mind? Do you want to live to be 80, 90 or 100? How about 115 or 120?

Do you think it matters what your expectations are? I do. I think if you expect to live a long healthy life, your chances of doing so are greater.
