Wow, very neat article! Damn, i was just about to get a housekeeper... i wonder if it's worth it to shave off some extra life time LOL

Okay, this is awful, but I am going to come clean. I did one of these calculators the other day and it said I would live to be 87. My knee jerk reaction was "Damn it! I can't do this that long."
Maybe I need more fried foods.

Erin,

I didn't number these for a reason...I'd be counting how many - or how few - of these I can check off.

I am in desperate need of a housekeeper but am thinking that living longer might be a good trade-off.
