    Pardon me? My mixed martial arts teacher is 70, the other is 82 and they are both fit as a bunny; they can sprint like I can, they can do multiple barrel rolls and they can do at least 10 pull-ups. That's what you get when you stay fit, do sports every day and eat right.

    The age you are talking about is around 85-86, but yeah, if you live like an unhealthy monster, then by the age of 60 you will have a 94% chance of getting a stroke or your organs will start failing on you.

    It depends how you consider function. I went to class yesterday on three hours sleep and unless I was focusing on taking notes I was dead to the world.

    Ideally I need a minimum 6 hours, but even then I'll feel really tired. I feel good at 8-9hrs.

    In the early hours of the morning I slept for 40 odd mins after 5 days of no sleep :bigsmile:
