I would say that is likely.
Assuming the youngest person here is about 16 years old, in 89 years they will be 105. in 89 years I (currently 41) will be 130. I would be very happy to be still alive at that point, but I seriously doubt that's going to happen.
Remember, the average life expectancy is still just under 70 worldwide, with the US falling a bit above that at 78. Even the longest lived country, Japan, still falls short at 82. And that's if you were born TODAY.
So maybe a couple of the 4 wheelin' youngsters here might make it to see another day like Wednesday, but don't count on it for the rest of us.
