As regards the title...the sitting test may speak to or in some way indicate your mortality (life span), but it does not determine it.

How ridiculous. I couldn’t do the cross legged stand up thing when I was a skinny little kid much less now. I might be dead this time next week but it won’t be in any way related to this test.

I wonder how many high school students can sit cross legged and stand up without assistance?

My mom went to assisted living when she could no longer get off the floor by herself. That turned out to be 7 months prior to her death. Multiple rounds of congestive heart failure took her out over the April to November time frame. The final blow was diagnosis of cancer in both lobes of her lungs a week before she passed.

Unfortunately, physical fitness is of little use against cancer.

I’m 59, healthy right now, work out in the gym for an hour every day, and could still very easily die in a few years.

Ok, so because I got a line drive to my knee, and can barely get off the floor without gyrations, because the knee wont bend - apparently I am dead already according to the test.

Does it matter if you are drunk when you take the test?

I failed the test.

Does that mean I am immortal?

Eve and Adam determined my mortality a while back.

It’s 100%.

The simple and precise answer: YES.

Sorry it took so long to respond, I couldn’t lean forward on the couch to reach the keyboard until I burped.

All the way down on the floor? Really? Sitting on the floor?

YES

These tests seem to work.
Way back in the (UN)Civil War, it was predicted that anyone over 21 that ate Corn without salt and butter would die.

Turns out they were correct.

I dug a grave today and it wasn’t mine. The test is bogus.

I am old but went off the trail on my dirtbike in the forest last August, fell down, but did manage to get up and right the bike...but it wasn’t especially easy and I was almost ready to cry.

It stands to reason that your power to weight ratio is a strong indicator of fitness, and fitness is a strong indicator of health. It is not a be all and end all, but all of the obese people who can’t get off the floor are certainly indicative of their unhealthful lifestyle, while those who are active and don’t overindulge will be more likely to need less help getting up off the floor.
