Wear & tear: Time takes its toll on our minds & bodies. Not everyone will develop infirmities or impairments but odds are not in your favor unless you eat right, exercise regularly, get enough sleep & choose your parents wisely. That last bit is my attempt to add luck to list of things that we can't control.
