Why can't we imagine ourselves getting old

    "Old age is the most unexpected of all the things that happen to a man." Behavioural thinkers believe that most people are incapable of imagining themselves getting old, one reason why people fail to invest sufficiently in a pension.

    "The progress has been astonishing," for the last 50 or so years life expectancy has been increasing at a rate of six hours a day."

    An interesting read, and it raises a very thought provoking question, how many amongst us really think about getting old?

    I was on the train yesterday thinking about this. I was thinking to myself hey, i wonder what I'll be doing 25 years from now, how I look or even would I be alive still...

    I don't think most people think about this because they are scared of dieing and leaving there family and friends behind... Then sometimes I be wondering if there is a after life and stuff like that.
