A former coworker just sent me this video which does a very clever job of showing the improvement in health and wealth of over 200 countries over the last 200 years.  Pretty amazing visual, isn’t it?


I turned 43 today.  Two hundred years ago, I might have been at the end of my life, even if a citizen of the wealthier Great Britain.  Today, with a little luck and continued blessings, I might just be middle aged.  

Reader poll.   In 200 more years, what would you guess will be the average age of death in the United States?  Keep in mind that it has doubled in the last 200 hundred years.

If enough people respond, I’ll share your guesses.
