    I doubt that's going to be an issue for me.

    Another stupid prediction. See how many of the past predictions have come true.

    Yeah, I'd be 88 by then.

    I'd better get all my chocolate eating done before then.

    Extreme weather....check
    Coral reef die-off....check
    Record world temps....check
    Warming oceans....check
    Melting permafrost....check

    I could go on. But this is a light hearted thread. Not an AGW argument.

    I'm eating strictly 85% chocolate in order to get maximum chocolate consumed in the time I have left.

    Seems pretty far off. But my grandmother lived to 100 and my parents are in their 80's. My grandmother's brothers and sisters all lived to late 80's or 90's while chainsmoking and drinking like fish. I might have to worry about this.

    I'll be dead of chocolate consumption before 2050 with a big fridge smile on my face!

    I'll be 94 in 2050 and since mom is 90 and doing fine, her father lived to 101 and the other side of the family also lived well into their 90s (except for my dad), and I love chocolate, this may be a problem. I probably should eat some chocolate right now and ponder a possible solution...now where did I hide that pound of Leonidas (the world's finest chocolate) that I bought for myself when I ordered that pound for mom?

    By 2050, nano manufacturing and synthetic everything, including food, will be in full swing.

    Wait, are you trying to tell me this isn't the world's finest chocolate?

    Looks like I'm gonna have to track down that little bastard who steered me wrong outside of Ralph's last month.
