    No

    It's probably the worst punishment imaginable.

    If I didn't age.

    A 10000 year mortgage might be the only way to buy property in London.

    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 :D

    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 :D

    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?

    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.

    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!

    ooh no thanks.

    i like the idea of coming back as a tree though.

    "nothingness" after death scares me a bit.

    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...

    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
