Well, I am a fool recently retired at age 50.
Couldn't help but notice on the Warren Buffet board
that he projects only 6 % return for equities for the
next 17 years. And I have tried retirement calculators and noted the default for me is to live until age 90.

You know the answer, savings funds run out at age 90!!

Should this old fool go back to work now or just wait until later, or anticipate better returns than Buffet predicts and that I become a dead fool at 85?
