How old am I? Old enough to vote. Anything else is on a need-to-know
basis, and you don't need to know. But to my mind, the worry is whether
my *grandparents* make it to the Singularity. I seriously doubt that even
the old fogeys among us will miss the train. If you're under forty, you
essentially have a cast-iron guarantee that you won't die of old age. You
may be hit by a truck, die of a premature heart attack at fifty, or have
an artery eaten by goo, but you won't die of old age. Hope this cheers
y'all up.
