If you were given a choice?
It's probably the worst punishment imaginable.
No. Too exhausting for me, dear.
If I didn't age.
A 10000 year mortgage might be the only way to buy property in London.
A bitter truth.
But I would love to see HOW THINGS TURN OUT
Maybe they have an EARTH TV CHANNEL in Heaven
Just imagine that once every star has died and there's nothing left but cold and darkness in the universe, you won't have lived the smallest fraction of your life.
You'd just float there, cold, hungry and wanting to die - hoping for the universe to end.
IF there is any form of after life, i would probably go for that. IF i get to see my family etc.
I would live forever though to see what everything looks like and how everything changes. How everything evolves etc
I like how a tree can stay in one place...and so much life passes it...yet it is still there. If that makes any sense anyway
Only if I had a time machine, my actions didn't affect the future, I'd never age and had infinite money.
I'd quite like to live a few hundred years if I didn't age horribly.
I'm not bothered in the SLIGHTEST about getting older other than a 'closer to death and constantly feeling like shit' kind of thing. I'm really not looking forward to being 60/70/80 cos I just KNOW that my body isn't going to be coping well by then.
I would not live forever, because we should not live forever, because if we were supposed to live forever, then we would live forever, but we cannot live forever, which is why I would not live forever.
Oh, I wouldn't mind being able to have face transplants either. I know I'd get bored of myself.
Will people be able to have them one day WITHOUT the scaring/obvious someone elses face? Like on that French woman?
*gets Ellie cheat book.. up up down down etc*
Absolutely not. What would be the point of living after all your friends and familiy had died?
Unless of course it was the same for everyone. But that would still be incredibly grim. How long would it take for the world to become hideously over populated?
We'd just have to advocate the mass murder of annoying children. Only keep the nice ones.
err well you'd make new friends! And family come and go...
I read something a few days back saying scientists think there are a number of people living today who will survive untill they are 1000!
And what young people would want to hang around with someone my age?
Oh hang on, it's a bit like me here
I see you follow the Miss Alabama school of philosphy.
do these scientists also greet their patients with "Hi Everybody!"
if you were immortal, but somebody cut off your head, would you still be alive afterwards?
I would like to know this please
Meryl Streep and Goldie Hawn say YES.
If someone chopped me in half, would there then be two of me, like a worm?
I'm liking your conditions
these are the kind of posts which make me think BAN SUOMI
and no i would nto want to live forever
Whenever anyone asks this question I always think of the last scene in Death Becomes Her
IT'S A QUOTE.
Now please shout at me.
who cares, i'm still pro-ban suomi.
ooh no thanks.
i like the idea of coming back as a tree though.
"nothingness" after death scares me a bit.
Is there such a thing as 'nothing' though?
I would never want to outlive my children to be honest, and back in my younger sillier days I used to ALWAYS go on about how I would kill myself before I hit 40, 6 years left...
it's a philosophical question, but yes, i do think so.
Nothing in the sense something has to be there for something to happen. A something can never become a nothing.
A person is never doing nothing, for example. Even sitting down is doing something
If that makes sense anyway
No, but I'd like to stay 22 for a few years and then start aging again
I always think I'm going to be really scared about dying, and I'm terrified that the reality is that it will happen one day
But then I think, I'm not exactly going to know when I am dead, because i'll be dead and it happens to everything on the planet, so I doubt its even that terrible a feeling
I reckon it'll be like switching a light on, one second you are alive, the next you are dead
