If you expect to live in some eutopia your living in a dream world and should grow up. If you can give me an example of a world and race which is better than our own and prove its existence and that its better than our own i'll give you a thousand pounds.

Nah, if you were immortal you'd have the ability to slow your mind and watch time fly. There'd be no problem with trying to fill in the gaps between the ages. Just relax and concentrate on passing time.
Who is complaining? The discussion is whether or not you would choose to be immortal. Inhale and exhale a couple of times really slowly and then try again.
We would all hate to see our friends and family die. However if you did have eternal life would you not get over such trivial things such as people dieing? If you lived for thousands of years you would experience people you loved die all the time. IMO you would become immune to the pain and be able to move on far more comfortably than you would at the moment.

JackofBlades, I thought about this as well, but the rate we mutate at is extremely slow, a snails pace, it takes 1000's of yours for a mutation to spread.
