People 'choose partners with similar life expectancies'

People unwittingly tend to choose a partner with a similar life expectancy, according to new research.

A genetic study found humans also unconsciously select mates with similar risks of illness such as blood pressure or heart disease.

Experts say the findings help explain why long-term couples often suffer from the same ailments in later years.

Researchers at the University of Edinburgh concluded the effect is likely a result of choosing a mate with shared lifestyle factors that are genetically linked to disease. These include risks such as smoking, or healthy behaviours.
I never had the good fortune to marry so, taking the above into account, it occurs to me that I might live forever.

Or will it just feel like it?

You and I will never know the infinite relief of a divorce.

Ya want the best of both worlds, so to speak?

Throw away half of what you own.

Nor the dread.

I've started working on this. Last year, I went through every one of my closets and cleaned them out. Goodwill got a metric butt-ton of good new and used clothes/shoes, plus books and small electronics and appliances. I was also able to get rid of some old computers and TVs (they recycle them for free). Claimed it all on my taxes. Win-win-win.

I need to keep going with this, though. I think this year, I'm going to tackle the front room in my house. That's where (1) I keep a bunch of boxes of stuff that didn't sell at my last yard sale a few years ago, and (2) multiple boxes of misc family treasures and house decor items that I lugged home from my folks' house.

The yard sale stuff can go, but I need to decide what to do with the stuff I brought home from SoCal. Some I want to keep, but there are quite a few things I plan to sell. Need to get going on this!

That post absolutely qualifies as random.

Weird as fuck, but, random.

Thanks Griff. I like this, I lean on it regularly, like a sturdy walking stick as I travel along the road of life. Sometimes it's more of a hike on a trail, sometimes I'm bushwhacking. It's especially helpful in times like those.

extension filed.....

financial advice with a little help from my friends

so.... every payout/fund rollover I received when beest died brings forth a 1099. his 401K kept receiving dividends for some time ..each one bringing on a 1099 etc etc etc. Plus he got a regular W2 and then one from when he was paid by their insurers because he was on long term sick leave (turned out to be one day....), I got a regular W2 and one from a former employer (local public schools from when I coached the swim team) who had a recent ruling against them that something they were doing regarding withholding cash for some fund when they employed me was wrong and they had to pay it back. It was a whole $13....... such is my world.....
