Ever wonder when you'll die? Or what will kill you? Now you can find out what will PROBABLY kill you and when.
Genealogists routinely catalog the births, marriages, and deaths of thousands of people; yet, we sometimes treat our own deaths as something that will never happen. Now a web site predicts your death date that your descendants will be recording in their genealogy databases.
The Death Test is the product of research that began over 5 years ago in Harvard's math department. I found it interesting that the test asks about the causes of death or your parents, grandparents, and siblings. It also asks the normal questions one might expect: family members who suffered from obesity, high blood pressure, past heart problems, and so on. It also asks about your own diet and lifestyle. It then returns a probable date of your death, based upon the data you supplied.
I took the test and got a surprise... It says I'll live longer than what I had expected.

I hope to see you around for a long time yet!
