It gets better:

"More than half the participants ages 76 to 80 failed the tests, scoring 0 to 3. Not surprising around 70 percent of those under 60 earned a near perfect or perfect score of 8, 9, or 10."

I wonder if could have gotten the same predictive power just by asking age and foregone all the sitting nonsense.
