    Since we know that

    Garbage In = Garbage Out

    - a nice linear relationship - we can postulate that

    Same Garbage In = Same Garbage Out

    This assumes that the relation is time-invariant. If so, we can generalize it to

    Same Old Garbage In = Same Old Garbage Out

    which seems to fit your experience.

    I'll not see 90, I guess. "Missed it by that much."

    Better than it saying that you should have died three years ago :wink:

    PS - my weight wasn't the same - though I am not planning my life around the result.

    I'll live to be 253, apparently, but I knew that already. :rolleyes:

    I checked it and answered honestly then changed it to a non smoker expecting a much later date. It made a difference of one year.

    It shouldn't be. One's life expectancy increases as one ages (you can't die at 45 after you turn 46, for example).

    It says I died already--May of 1999 that explains alot about why the pjhone stopped ringing and the mail stopped arriving.

    Fine, I'll live to be 90. That's nice... I always wondered what it was like to have a saggy bum and no hair on my testicles..:rolleyes:

    Plus, i have always wanted to shout at people for no reason.:smile:

    I tried using the same info repeatedly resetting the form and it spit out results that varied each time: anywhere from death at age 80 to death at age 99.

    A waste of time.

    It told me 67 as a smoker, 74 as a non-smoker.

    My dad kicked it at 69. His father kicked it at 66. Sounds about right.

    Can you imagine how many posts Jeff will have made by the time he is 90?

    I got 90,93 and 97 all with the same information.

    I'll take the average and call it that.

    612,645, assuming he continues at his current pace. And assuming that he joined 10 months ago today.
