Oh, another...Hazel the maid in my home, for free, whenever I called her to come over. She would also water and tend the money tree on my locked back porch.

Assuming one would want to be over 100. Personally, I have no desire to outlive my friends and family-siblings, wife, folk of my generation and adult children. Products? None really. But as a Christian, I have no desire to desperately hold on to life beyond what I am meant to live.

Think about it, if we could just zap ourselves to the docs.Or visit a friend without traffic hassles...Or zap ourselves away from weather hazards.

Only downside would be getting it repaired..
