Life expectancy

Leave a comment

It’s not released yet, so we don’t know. Will people throng to shell out $59 for a Tikker watch which counts down one’s remaining life expectancy? If so, then I think that we are indeed in a bubble and it is about to burst.

(There’s nothing transcendental involved. Tikker uses a common algorithm used by the federal government to estimate a person’s life expectancy per @SusanDJames.)

Here is how to think about life expectancy:

go for a walk,

if you have children, take them with you,

breathe the air,



maybe take in a wide vista,

remind yourself,

we are here for a very brief time.

Life is sweet and it is fleeting. I don’t need a watch to tell me that.
