Live fast, die young

Living the Brockley dream comes at a terrible price, as this map of life expectancy in London by proximity to stations shows.

The average life expectancy of someone living near Brockley Station is 78, which is one better than those who live in New Cross and Lewisham, but pretty dismal compared to much of the rest of the capital. Not sure what, if anything, this map tells us really, except that the richer areas tend to live longer than poor ones.

Still, it's always good to contemplate our own mortality.

With thanks to Brockley Ben, whose life expectancy is directly related to his intake of pork.
