I really would like to have a Saturday night that goes a little something like this:

hit the gym. Shower, Eat. meet up with about 2-4 guy friends about 9pm. walk to a local bar or college party in a big house. Get totally wasted. stumble home at like 3am, watch a movie and drink/smoke a little more. Pass out around 5am. Wake up Sunday at like 10am. Tend to hangover and take it easy all day.

I haven't been able to do that in about 10 years. I miss it.

I didn't mean any individual party. I meant the frequency of partying. Partying when you have class at 8am and actually making that class. Ridiculous road trips, pranks, altheletics, etc. I am nothing like I was 3 to 5 years ago.

I rarely partied during the week, and didn't schedule 8 am classes. I probably party with a similar frequency overall, nowhere near my last semester, but it was my last semester so I went out all the time.

I'm surprised no one has cited life expectancy stats and cut it in half for the actuarially answer.

Life expectancy in USA = 78.2.

Middle aged = 39.1.

I think "adult" is fine for my age group.

I think it should be a range, either 40%-60% or 45%-55%, so:
31.28-46.92
or
35.19-43.01

Some smart actuary should compute the standard deviation of the random variable x=age at death.
