in Message #13610, Mike Perry comments after considering some lifespan
statistic tables:

Anyway, if we suppose the chance of dying in 10 years was 1 in 50 rather
than 1 in 37, it would still be a good reason to sign up.

I agree that 1 in 50 is probably in the ball park.  Prior to your check on
the stats I would have guessed 1 in 1,000 for a healthy person to die
between the ages of 39 and 49.  I think 1 in 50 is a darn good reason to
sign up soon.  Thanks for the info!
