"Misadventure As A Cause Of Death In An Immortal Population", by Hugh Hixon

is available as Cryomessage #0016 in the Cryonet archives.  The half-life of
an immortal population is estimated at 1654 years, due to solely to
accidents and homicide, with lots of *caveats*, and is really pretty
conservative (pessimistic).  Read the article, and supply your own guesses.
