I recently picked a new primary care physician. After two visits and 
exhaustive lab tests, he said I was doing "fairly well" for my age. A 
little concerned about that comment, I couldn't resist asking him, "Do 
you think I'll live to be 80?" 

He asked, "Well, do you smoke tobacco or drink beer/wine?" 

"Oh no," I replied. "I've never done either." 

Then he asked, "Do you eat rib-eye steaks and barbecued ribs?" 

I said "No, I've heard that all red meat is very unhealthy!" 

"Do you spend a lot of time in the sun, like playing golf, sailing, 
ballooning, or rock climbing ?" 

"No, I don't," I said. 

He said, "Do you gamble, drive fast cars, or sexually fool around?" 

"No," I said. "I've never done any of those things." 

He looked at me and said, "Then why do you give a $hit if you live to be 
80?"
