We are getting closer to preventing aging.

At some point, we may be able to stop it entirely.

But, it will most likely come with a price. We cant let people live for a thousand years, and still let them have children.

So, if you had the option of not aging or having children, which would you take?

for voting purposes, assume you never had children.

And you think Social Security has problems NOW? Fact: life is a merry go around. You ride for a certain amount of time. You get off so somebody else can get on.

I would actually like life to be shorter like the old days. It removes the old ideals and into new. I, myself, would enjoy dieing at 50 or sooner if possible.
