ive wanted, above all things, to be able to live for a long time. its a major problem i have with the world that i wont live to see what will happen, what will become. i know we wont become a space farig people in my lifetime, but in 700 years, maybe. id like to see that.
itd be unbearable to keep aging. after 150, itd be torture for ages. id chose somethign around 25 or so, perfect physical condition. id eat a lot healthier, too.
OH GOD you have no idea how much i want this.

Take it from a guy that has been around for a long time... its not about how long you live, but its about what you did when you had the chance. As each day passes you are not going to remember very waking second, but instead you will remember the moments that made a difference in your life, like when you first fell in love or when you first found yourself and said this is how I want to live my life. Life is all about these moments. It doesnt matter if you live for 10,000 years, if you regret it all in the end. Live life like it was ment to be... because many people will never even have a chance at a decent life, so never forget to be humble and selfless...

Don't some holy books(like the Quran, The Bible etc etc) Talk about people living hundreds of years and that at least in the Bible Methusala was the last one to live 700 years or somthing. Do you guys think that some of our religous texts might be telling of a time where technology was higher then it was today? I know this theory has been posted before, but I believe that it could answer alot of questions of our pre-history. And I'm usally not one to specualte on things in the past because I prefer to look into the future but it would be neat IMO if we could prove this.
Don't get me wrong; I figure I've already lived three-fourths of my life, and I'm not ready to kick off yet by any means. But a thousand years? I don't know.

I'd love to live that long, the only problem is that you couldnt live infinetly, do to the fact that in about ten billion years the universe will tear itself apart, no stars no planets no galaxys not even atoms.
