Stephen Hawking was amazed to find that there is in fact an afterlife and after St Peter let him through the Pearly Gates and ushered him into the reception area, he was even more amazed to find everyone in stitches as Ken Dodd was holding forth and then Jim Bowen came up and challenged him to a game of 'Round The Clock!'  :)

I'm currently looking at pension options (annuity Vs drawdown etc) and it's a bit strange when you see them trying to figure out when I am going to kick it  :o and whether I will outlive the money  . . . . . Not a "Dead Person" yet

Draw down will leave a legacy, annuity won't... Were you to roll over unexpectedly.
