Living to 100


Listen here
It is not as uncommon as it used to be for people to live a century or more.

Last year, Hallmark, an American greeting card company, sold 85,000 “Happy 100th Birthday!” cards.

As people continue to enjoy healthier lives, life expectancy will continue to rise in the coming decades.


life expectancy: the amount of time a person is expected to live.


  1. birthday cards that are personlized are the best in my opinion, they really come from the bottom of the heart of the sender*,,

  2. Along with the development of science and technology,people’s life expectancy can reach at least 200 years,when people’s working time will be lengthened to 100 years,which sounds a piece of bad news.hehe.

  3. If gene can be modified and fixed, thus those anticipated diseases won’t pose a threat to our life, then life expectancy surely will continue to rise and of course our sexual activity can be extended as well. How nice it is!
