Probably anything over 80 and if you die suddenly and peacefully, not as a result of some recognizable illness. They say the life expectancy of MAN is 110, it's just that nowadays more and more people are living out this natural lifespan. Something to think about, isn't it?

110! would be ok to live that long if you have all your marbles still and everything worked ok:)

When I was a child, anyone over 20 was old. Then when I was 20, it was anyone over 50, when I was 40 it was anyone over 60 but now at 55 I know that it is anyone over 100. LOL I don't think years really matter, because irrespective of the age a person is, there will always be someone who loves and mourns their passing. The grieving will always think that the person was too young and should have been around for 'just a little longer'.
