Want to live longer - win at CAPS?

So, winners of the Nobel Prize apparently live longer.


I guess I'm surprised that all those old chemists and Marie Curie apparently didn't skew down the results. More interesting is the theory that status, or simply self-satisfaction derived from acknowledged respect, can lead to living longer. This is good, because I don't honestly think the Nobel committee has me on their list.

As investors, and through CAPS, public investors with a public track record one has to wonder whether the virtual 'status' we can achieve in this game can lead to a longer life. Will Russel outlive us all - LOL. While bemused by this topic, is this self-fulfilling. Bad investors who put a modicum of their self-worth into their investing skills, will likely die sooner anyway - so it really doesn't matter that they sucked at investing. Whereas, good investors, may well get to enjoy the fruits of their success longer.

Whats up with that?

And forced to suffer with my successes?

Oh what a cruel and wicked twist of fate.

In perpetual ponderousness(?),
