Do we need to qualify our choice of with a number of variables ?

how's this for a start...

close enough to a trauma center
close enough to a cryonics facility
a legal venue providing for obtainable life extending services and

low ambient radiation (radon, ultraviolet, etc.)
practical commuting distance to sustain an adequate income (if that is
necessary for how one creates wealth)

Location provides efficient means to access new life extending information
(i.e. internet)

anything else ?


This all brings up the question... if you want to survive the longest,
all else being equal, where do you choose to live in the year 2000?
