How Do You Celebrate Your 100th Birthday? Beer Pong, Of Course
Most of us just won't be lucky enough to be around to celebrate our 100th birthday. However, if you were to reach that milestone, what would you do to ring in the occasion?
According to the folks at DiscoverTheOdds,
Life expectancy is up as people are living longer than ever before, thanks to a number of factors including improvements in health science and technology. However, living to the age of 100 remains a remarkable and somewhat rare feat. Individuals aged 100 or older, referred to as centenarians, make up less than one percent of the U.S. population. According to the U.S. Census Special Report on Centenarians, in 2010, there were 53,364 centenarians in the United States or 1.73 per 10,000 people in the total population.
So, to boil it down, you've got a better chance of doing it than your parents or grandparents did, and your child or grandchild will probably fare better than you, but still...the odds are against one becoming a centenarian.
I've gotta tell you, if I make it to the 100 year mark, I might take a page out of Prospect Heights, Illinois' own Grandma Pope. Her grandson, Trevor Pope, recently posted a video of his grandma partaking in a celebratory game of Beer Pong:
According to Trevor, "My grandma just turned 100...she's still crushing beer pong!"
