Your Personal Day of Death is... Thursday, October 1, 2037
Boo hoo! I don't want to find out! I'm not looking I'm not looking I'm not looking!
OK, well, I looked, and it said I wouldn't die till 2077. But it's pretty silly, really. I mean, I could get hit by a bus today and that would be it. Also, I thought the questionnaire was very unfairly fat-phobic, and it didn't ask any questions like how many vegetables you eat or how much exercise you take or how much you drink. But it would be quite nice to live for another 71 years. I will be 98 and hopefully surrounded by loving grandchildren and admirers and hopefully still have all my own hair and teeth and faculties.
not just fat-phobic, but weight-phobic. BMI doesn't take into account body composition; muscle weighs more than fat and I will never be in the 'healthy' range for the BMI, because to do that I would have to lose muscle or bone mass (my lean weight--muscles, bones, skin, organs--is already 135lbs, so that means that I can gain no more muscle and have no more than 15lbs of fat on me for me to have the highest allowed BMI for my height. That little fat (10%) is unhealthy; girls shouldn't have less than 15% and it's rare that they have less than 20% unless they're athletes). Nor is how much you drink (alcohol) or drugs etc taken into account. there's so many other factors than your actual weight. Plus you can weigh very little and still have a lot of fat sitting around your organs, which is the most unhealthy type there is, and then die very young... my grandfather was always very skinny and thought he was careful with what he ate when he was older, but he died of a heart attack (blocked artery) at 72yrs. So now that we're all thoroughly depressed, who feels like chocolate? Oh, I had a shot last night called a buttery nipple and that was a little bit of heaven in a glass...
