An Update on Ryan's Conditional Life Expectancy

According to the federal government, I have about about 44 years to live. My probability of dying this year is apparently 0.001468. Look up your own if you dare.

I have been reflecting on mortality for 2 reasons. First, I ain't getting any younger, and September always reminds me of that. Second, the first counselor in our Elders Quorum died, and I was called to replace him. I view it as a great opportunity to do work for the dead. (Thank you! Thank you! I'll be here all week!)

Economists know the second weirdest websites (second only to computer guys). It was comforting to see that I have ~.13% chance of dying this year though.... I guess that could be the government lulling me into a false sense of security. You sure this site isn't tied to some conspiracy?
