Missed this.

Life expectancies from here: http://www.infoplease.com/ipa/A0005140.html

For white males:

1850-2004: 38.3 to 75.4 = .240 years per year
1900-2004: 48.2 to 75.4 = .261 years per year
1950-2004: 66.3 to 75.4 = .169 years per year
1990-2004: 72.4 to 75.4 = .214 years per year

White females:

1990-2004: 79.4 to 80.8 = .100 years per year

All Other Males:

1990-2004: 67.0 to 69.8 = .200 years per year

All Other Females:

1990-2004: 75.2 to 76.5 = .093 years per year


So it's wrong for females, but it doesn't seem that bad for males.
