I ignore them. The average age of men in my family assuming room temperature is 71 - father, grandfather and uncles. I'm 70. I intend to beat that record.

Going in on Tuesday to an oral surgeon. Dark spot on lower jaw mucosa. Could be good, could be nothing.

I intend to live until I die. Yep, I do. As for a guess, I think it is worth looking at the oldest age at death between your parents and grandparents, then add a couple years. If your grandma lived until 96, you just might make it to 100.

I'm north of 50. I have already beat the record of one grandparent. Beating the records of other grandparents, however, will require some time. I'll need another 25 years. I've one parent who passed in their late 70s due to a freak illness. Otherwise, my guess is they'd have bested 90. Other parent is heading for 90 with no imminent threats. Uncles (I've no blood related Aunts) ... one barely bested early 60s, the other made it to mid 70s. The older one had a congenital heart issue that was never corrected. If not for that we're probably talking 80s - 90s. Expanding out to cousins, lots of longevity there. Many have bested 80, several have bested 90. Oldest one thus far reached 99. Many still in the running.

You don't have to give real email. I gave them my email like me@yahoo.com and I still got to read the results, 99. I would have higher number if I drink wine at least a cup a week.

Don't worry. Even if you look at estimates like this calculator generates it's far from certain (to put it mildly) that you will indeed live to the estimate.
