I don't know about the rest of you, but IMHO, there is a reverse "time-value" of life in operation here. This means that each youthful day (today) is worth more than each "old-age" day (tommorrow).

I have to wholeheartedly agree with this. As you age, your world shrinks. This is inevitable. My grandmother is 94 and has alzheimers. Her world is down to three rooms and a twice/wk bus ride to the senior center to play with the other adult kids. Her pace is approximately 15'/minute.

When I had a career, my world was my office, my car (in DC traffic), my house and occasional trips to places I usually didn't care much for. I can't say I was much better off than my grandmother. My pace was faster, but not necessarily more enjoyable. ER changed that.
