...which means that at age 66, if I live an average number of years, I've already lived 86% of my life.

Besides Sheri who's 63, I think I'm the youngest here.

I've been doing a lot of thinking, perhaps you coukd call it soul searching about the gargantuan number of hours I've been spending on special media, and I'm realizing that for the most part, it's been a waste. Sheri came to this realization a while back.

I probably won't leave this forum or Facebook altogether, but I'm drastically cutting back on the time I spend on social media.

Peace,
Donna

    Virtually all my social media time is spent here. As for me, most of my time is wasted consuming popular fiction. My next serious read will be Doris Kearns Goodwin's TEAM OF RIVALS, about Abraham Lincoln's administration.

    Donna,
    I am 70 years old. The life expectancy is statistics you cited does not mean I can expect to live another seven years. Look up actuarial tables for life expectancy. Your life expectancy is considerably longer than 77 years. Thatís because unlike a newborn, youíve already successfully navigated several decades, without being in a fatal car crash, being in a gun shoot out, overdosing on drugs or contracting a fatal illness.

    Congratulations! Youíve done well and so far so good. Just continue being a good person, live a decent life and try to show others the error of your ways.

    HtS,
    I bought and read ďTeam of RivalsĒ. It is an excellent and informative book. Iím sure you will enjoy it.

    Curt,

    Thanks.

    I'm looking forward to it.

    Donna, I'm going to miss your input. Sincerely.

    If anybody is interested, the government actuarial table below will estimate how many more years of life you can expect.

    Since I was 18, I've lived every day as if it were my last. I have very little say in the date. Given that I don't, it's not something I can worry about.

    Donna,

    

I havenít been spending a lot of time here and will be spending even less time in the foreseeable future. I no longer have any illusions or expectations that any kind of meaningful or rational dialogue will ever be forthcoming or even possible with our two resident trolls. I think we all know that they use this simply as a platform that enables them to hurl sarcastic and condescending insults and engage in childish name calling. I also know that by responding to them we are only enabling them to continue to do so. I do however have to admit that sometimes I get caught up in some of their nonsensical arguments and respond in kind even though I know thatís exactly what they want and by doing so it only encourages them.

    What time I do actually spend on ďsocial mediaíí is almost entirely on spent Facebook with friends and family and itís quite enjoyable. Both my wife and I come from very LARGE families spread out across the country so itís an excellent way to keep in touch, share photos, memories, and keep up on the latest news. We do occasionally get into some good debates but they are always genuine and civil.

    My only remark is that you receive what you give.
