No thanks. I don't feel great at age 62. I hate to think how much worse it could be at 90. Most of the people I've known who made it to 90 or more had a terrible quality of life. I don't want to outlive a spouse, siblings, friends, etc. I value quality over quantity.

As long as I can bathe myself and wipe my own butt, then yes I would like to be alive at 90 even 100. I am 61 now and I see no problems in the near future so I am going out on a limb here. Yes, I will state that I want to be alive at 90. Hopefully the ole johnson is still getting the job done.

No, I want to live to 120, maybe beyond. Maybe forever, who knows.

Listen, there's a guy in my church who will be 90 this year. He told everyone at coffee hour once last year, and loudly, because he's deaf, that he is so thankful for Viagra because he just can't go without sex.

There's hope.

There are even braggarts even at 90. There was hope for Huge Hefner too, but I’ve read Viagra caused him some problem.

I don't want to live not being able to care for myself, no matter what age I live till. I hope I leave this world caring for myself. I'm also so distressed by all of the worsening troubles in the world that I can't imagine living till 90 here. 28 yrs seems like a long time to deal with the things in this world. Though there are a handful of improvements in the world overall, for the most part things are deteriorating. I'm not a doomsayer. Ask 20 & 30-somethings, even teens. What does their future look like? It's a sad situation. But no matter how much longer I live, I pray that I will always be able to reach out and help someone else till my dying day.
