Life expectancy depends on one's name?
« on: August 05, 2011, 08:54:06 PM »
What is in a name? According to the University of California in San Diego, a longer life! People with initials that double as “negative” words (like D.U.D., I.L.L., or D.E.D., for example) can expect to see a decrease in life-expectancy by as much as three years! Those with initials that double as “positive” words (like W.O.W. or J.O.Y.) can live almost 4.5 years longer than the average life-expectancy! No one is sure why this is the case, however. The only known way to confront this issue is to change your name! -- http://listverse.com/

what a silly claim.  besides, it's limited to the english language.  what if I.L.L. means the opposite in some other language?  i wonder what the life expectancy is of someone with the initial of A.S.S.? ;D

Oi, don't dismiss us as failures as yet. Sa panultihon pa, when one door closes, a drawer opens. Hunos, naay moabot nga mas bugnaw pa kaysa imong simod itoy...
