Pretty cool, I saw Alabama and Mississippi have lower life expectancy across the whole state, but then I thought if I had to live there I wouldn't want to live as long either so it probably works out.
Some of those counties have some crazy low life expectancy in today's world with our current medical technologies. Story county has a 10 year advantage on some of those.
I unfortunately have spent a week in rural Tennessee and Alabama on a couple different occasions. It should come to no surprise to anyone who has been in that part of the world that the life expectancy numbers are that low when you see first hand the lifestyles that some of these people live in parts of those states. The southern stereotype exists for a very good reason.
Currently I live in Scott County, IA, and I have a life expectancy of 76 years. When I move to Macomb County, MI in 3 weeks, apparently I can expect to live 3 months less. I guess I do have added motivation for moving to Oakland County, MI when we actually purchase our house - I can expect to live an additional 2 years.
Chuck Lidell: I paint my toenails with pink and black polish. Problem is, I get more paint on my toes and on the carpet than on my nails. Any advice? Maria Sharapova: Don't you beat up other guys for a living? I don't know how to answer this.
