With the negative things of the world and knowing it will only worsen, no I wouldn't want to live forever. I will enjoy the time I have on earth, do and see all I can, make the most of it but when it's time - it is time and I am perfectly happy to accept that.

Yeah would not mind it as long as you did not age and stayed healthy and fit it would be fun to talk about life in the Mid-Late 20th century and annoy the younger generations 400-500 years from about how things were back in your/our day of the late 20th early 21st centuries.

Hell no.
I would like to make it too one hundred(24 more years), then for me it would be time to go.
I would hate to be a young kid, teenager, or someone in their twenties right now.
The way things are going on in this world, the United states will never survive another 30, 40, or 50 years.
It will be taken over by the money changers of China, or the emerging nuclear powerhouse nations, bent on the destruction of the United States.

And let us not forget the radical religious zealots of the world, namely Isis.
I don't believe they will ever be stopped.
No thanks, 24 more years is enough for me.
I really pity the younger generations.

They will never know, as we older folks do, what freedom really is.

Bob.

I would not want to live forever... My goal is to have a very healthy life, enjoy and travel the world, retire around 65 and say bye bye to world around 75.

I think life is getting more difficult and complicated everyday. It is getting harder to get in a good school, finding a decent job and saving enough for retirement. Things are getting less tasty everyday. I still remember the tomatoes I ate when I was little. They were juicy and smelled great. Today they have no taste and smell.

No way I would be happy passing on at 50. Life sucks for the most part an eternity of it would be some kind of torture.

If you are worried about not being able to do all of the things you want to do in an average lifetime, then get off an online forum and go do something!

I have been forced lately, to confront the circumstances of the death of my great grandfather from a hit and run driver.
Here is the scenario. My great grandfather and great grandmother were walking home from a trolley, a short distance from their home, in 1927, when they were hit by a hit and run driver, who was never identified. My grandfather was killed and his wife was injured, but lived. They were retired. My grandfather had worked for 40 years at the same company, after immigrating from England. They did everything right, including raising 11 children.
I already knew that life is short, and we all should only live for the moment, but this knowledge about my ancestors has reinforced this so much. Live as if this is your last day on earth. Tell those you love that you love them. Tomorrow may never come.
