    Your "ideal" weight for maximum longevity is: 176 lbs


    compare that to my current 245 -- I'd say 74 is pretty optimistic

    Well, I just pulled off the impossible by doing a double-blind comparison all by myself, purely by virtue of the fact that I completely and stupidly forgot what I did last. I guess that getting old does have its advantages after all :D

    Good thing they did not factor in how loud I play my stereo. I would have been dead before I got out of diapers.:D

    78. Not bad. I'd guess the longer I stay quit smoking, the higher that gets? At least for a while surely...

    I'm afraid to take the test! ^^^^ My sentiments exactly. I've been putting off clicking this thread until I saw you post cause I thought there was going to be the famous Gates humor.

    Based on your answers to the above questions, your current life expectancy is 90 years. If you're not happy with the result, consider that by adopting a healthier lifestyle and avoiding various risk factors, you can increase your life expectancy by up to 15 years.

    Your "ideal" weight for maximum longevity is: 194 lbs. ( i have to lose another 70lbs!!!)

    The three biggest positive factors that you have going for you are:
    1. Age of parents
    2. Diet
    3. Doctor exam frequency

    The three biggest negative factors that you have going for you are:
    1. Gender
    2. Weight
    3. Family health
