A 30-hour day?

by Gene on Apr. 25th, 2010

Who wouldn't like to have more hours in a day? Well, now you can -- sort of. A study by Duke University researchers has found that over the last 170 years, life expectancy in advanced countries has increased at a rate of 2.5 years per decade -- or an average of 6 hours a day! Just think -- since you sang Auld Lang Syne last New Year's Eve, medical advances have increased your life expectancy by 29 days. What are you going to do with all that spare time?
