Population Statistic: Read. React. Repeat.
Tuesday, January 11, 2021

Whenever I hear some twentysomething moaning about his/her quarterlife crisis, I point out that, based on current life expectancy, they’re being wildly optimistic.

Most of the time, I get back a blank stare. Occasionally, someone will figure out the quick math, and respond with a scowl. I’ve never asked if it was because they’d just realized that they were 5-10 years overdue on this post-adolescence marker, or if they resented my questioning their youthful immortality. Either way, a win for me!
