5. Life insurance

premiums are assessed by actuaries - the probability of death under given current circumstances such as current age , health history geographical location etc.

I would not endevour to explain your health care premiums over there . Suffice it to say that ignoring our NHS over here which covers everything from the time of conception though to pushing up the daisies , there is no such thing as private cover for pre-exisiting conditions other than maybe at higher rates and that has been so since the '70s. Private health insurance premiums here also increase with age, quite substantially , which I why I dumped that lark about 10 years ago.

btw - I would doubt I am a smarter person that you. Were that to be the case I wouldn't have 80 or so banjos and at least 25 guitars none of which I can play.
