Hmm, it shows life expectancy of 74 in Alabama, yet nearly all of my relatives have lived into their 80's.

Just about all of my relatives in my parents generation and beyond ( from PA ) have made it into their 80s, and at least half of them have made into their 90s.

Hence the word average, you're not taking into account the 17 year-old daredevil who dies in a car crash or the person in their 40s who dies from breast cancer.

So, I should move to Minnesota from Texas to gain two more years?

Thanks, but I'd rather die young than live in that ice box.

What if you were diagnosed with a terminal illness, advanced to a stage that gave you just two weeks to live...and...what if the doctor said, you would live at least 2 more years ( with no pain! ) in a cold place like Minnesota. I bet you'd be packing your bags for Minnesota as soon as you got out of the doctors office.

Extreme cold causes me a different kind of pain, or should I say pain in a different place, so what would I gain?
