Immortality here I come :)



Hmm seems like we're gonna live forever, ain't that cool or what...

I have always wanted to be immortal, looks like I'll just have to make it to the year 2029 :)

I wonder what's gonna cost such a treatment...

Well, here's the link:

What's your opinion? Live forever young or die as a 80-year old? Well, you can always jump off a bridge when you're 400 or so ;)

  2. i call bullshit. sorry, but this sounds spaced. and it is likely to be so criticized by religious groups that it will be shut down.

  8. Everyone wants to live forever but when it becomes a reality, it just doesnt seem right.

  10. So long as I can kill myself as I see fit if I become immortal, I can't imagine hating it too much. We generally die before we get tired of living, it would be interesting to stay alive for a couple hundred years or so before that happened.

  21. living forever would be horrible. i want to die as soon as I can no longer care for myself.

    ReplyDelete
  22. the powers at be wont allow this. no way.

    ReplyDelete
  23. well i hope that the government won't be too bitchy about it and will allow those that want prolong their lives to let them do so... i think it's all about choice, so you can choose if you want to do it or not, live for as long as you want :)

  24. That's some interesting info. At the same time, this earth is so full, people need to die in order to compensate.. unless we occupy Mars or whatever planet.

  28. @nick
    well i think they said it would be like prolonging your life for 1.5 years every year (so basically you wont die) but you can quit the treatment or jump of a bridge whenever you like :)
    that's at least how i understood it
    @The special one
    i think with this you wouldn't get old

  35. I've read this awhile ago...seems like a great blessing to do but at the same time a curse. Jeez I'd probably do it but after a couple hundred years I'd get tired of it lol.

  36. I share opinions with the very few saying we're already overpopulated on earth .. :P Heck, we even have a lot of homeless people now! But I guess it's not gonna come cheap, so we'd end up having only the most rich people living forever.. Which is a good thing I guess?? The most experienced leaders of the world could keep their experience in the "game" :)

    Interesting post.. Although I'm a bit curious as to if it's even at all possible to do.. We'll have to wait and see in 2029 I guess!
