Some of the factors their little game considers are: your weight/ body mass index (BMI) and other elements such as drinking, smoking, stress plus your driving record and behavior.

Naturally there are a bunch of caveats, but the game is quick - it's fun - and unless you are living a destructive lifestyle you could be happy with the prediction.

If you have a child, grandchild or friend who is a big sports fan then you are in for a treat. You can hook them up with their favorite sports star - someone who normally would be close to impossible to interact personally with.

You start by choosing a high grade color photo of your favorite star. Then you tell your star whatever you want him or her to know about you. Then ask him to autograph the photo along with a memorable note. You're guaranteed that your star will read and respond to your message personally.

In addition your big guy will add a personalized voice message. These folks call the whole thing an "egraph" and the egraph is guaranteed to knock the recipient's sox off!

Now your child can have two heroes -- the star --- and you!
