Supercentenarians

Over 60,000 people in the world are over 100 years of age.
There are enough people at or over the age of 110 to have their own name... "supercentenarians".

In that case, I am not even one quarter of the way through my life.

You don't really want to go to 110, do you?

I'm making my kids sign a promissory note stating that if I make it to 95, they have to hire a band of ninjas and professional attack bears to take me out in a blaze of glory.
