If I had to choose, I'd go with the human clone. Living forever sounds like a nice idea to me, at first, but when I really think about it? Nah. That sounds like a special kind of hell.

Why not live for eons as i'd have no problem with that as long as science can keep you young and free of disease i'm all for it. I plan to be just like Jack Lalane in that if i'm around in my 90's or later i plan to still be active and enjoying life as i do now. No matter what wealth i aquire in this life of mine at the end give me my health and my basketball and let me shoot hoops for hours and surf in the beautiful sun and beaches at 90 or 100 or 110 while others rot in a nursing home.

Yeap i'll take living to 200 or 300 or 400 if it were ever possible. Besides someone's got to keep the 80's music alive for generations when all the 80's rockers are dead and gone

No way I'd want to live forever, especially seeing how our individual freedoms keep being eroded and the world gets more and more screwed up. Eventually I'd jaywalk across a street one too many times, and get a life sentence for being a repeat offender.

Cartman might ultimately have it right - "Scrw you guys, I'm goin' home."

I don't either but when I'm lying on my death bed I'll probably change my mind.

What if they're staying alive that long too?
