This is guaranteed to make anyone feel youthful--no matter how many candles you'll have on your next birthday cake. Yesterday, the Marist Institute for Public Opinion released a survey that's been raising some eyebrows. Pollsters asked adults over 18 across the country this question: "Do you think someone who is 65 is young, middle-aged, or old?"

Good news for Baby Boomers: A majority of the respondents--55 percent--said they considered 65 to be middle-aged. And while the survey didn't ask when old age begins, some experts consider 74 the age when people can be considered old. A big reason: People are living longer. Average life expectancy in the U.S. is 78.8 years, according to the CDC. So if we're living longer, we can push off calling ourselves middle-aged for a while.
