To look good or to feel good?

As we are often reminded, the population of our country is aging.  By 2030, there will be as many older people as young people in this country.  I am 48, so by 2030, I will be one of the over-65 crowd.  Like everyone else, I want to age well.  In preparing slides for a talk to group of psychiatry residents, I came across the picture above.  Showing it to the residents always gets a laugh and some funny comments like, “looks like his head was transplanted onto a younger body”.
