Not for me, I've virtually experienced a lot, I think I'll probably be living till 200 though, I don't rally want to however.
Once you get to be my age (23) the world is just a big ball of dirt and mud hanging out in space, well that's what it's like for me, emotions aside at least, emotionally, I'm still waiting to be able to experience true happiness and love from another person.

Very nice, Intelligent reply. I agree that many people clearly overlooked these statements, in context of the video. Good post, anonymous. Good post.

Any proof of this? I mean, I'm not saying you're wrong, but there just might not be a way to prove that if it's true.
i always wonder if people are right when they state that things arent "natural" or they arent "right". it almost seems logical to me that whatever IS has naturally arrived here right or wrong. whether its some toxic chemical, a cloned animal or even a computer that can learn and make decisions. why can bees create honey but humans cant naturally create technology? im sure if bees had the capability to create new tools to help expand indefinitely they would. so everything we have created are just tools (from ideas)for us to survive and flourish. right or wrong (which are only concepts we have made in our minds anyway). to me computers and AI seem like a natural progression.
