If you could live reasonably healthy and continue working for a few more years, it would be fine with me. I don't think I'd like to be retired at 70 and spend another 50 years on a fixed income. I would however really like to see what the next 50 years of technology will bring to the human race. Science fiction becoming science fact. Transporter beam to Hawaii for an afternoon at the beach anyone?

I'm more interested in quality of life until I die than quantity of years.

I keep a motorcycle specifically to minimize the liklihood of that happening!

Wow! Thank goodness we have obamacare to fund an unhealthy lifestyle to 120 years old.

IF you listen to John Tesh you can live to 100, If you don't mind spending some of that Century in an insane asylum.

What most people don't realize or comprehend is that technological advancement is exponential, not linear. In other words, the amount of advancement will grow increasing rapid. Artificial intelligence smarter than people, clean energy "too cheap to meter" (LENR is already hitting the market this year), and radical life extension using SENS that will turn a 90 year old back into a 20 year old. The future is one of abundance, not scarcity like we see now - I wish young people could be made to understand that they have so much to live for...the future is so bright we'll have to wear shades.

I was surprised the day I saw my dad in the mirror as I was looking at my self now That I'm looking at my grand father ain't that cool. I went to my family reunion and there wasn't any ants or uncles only cousins, all with gray hair. To have been forever young would be great but old and frail Isn't. I exercise so I can keep in shape but I can see how fast I lose it when I didn't. I don't want to be a beast of burden. The expiration date to room temperature is coming and I'm trying to prolong it until I can see there is on hope for sex any more.

I like John Tesh music. What would drive me insane is listening to just about any of todays so called music being played by so called talented people who rap, hip hop, urban ect. Anyone can pick up a microphone and prattle on in iambic pentameter and call it singing. And don't get me started on the lyrics of that junk.

I truly hope you are correct as to the bright future coming.

Could I slow down the aging process and live longer? Would I want to? NO WAY! Let me state again....NO WAY! This world is such a mess. Nothing makes sense anymore. Everything that was once considered good and decent are now considered taboo and old fashioned. Evil and corruption are everywhere with no hope of being purged. No, I don't want to live a long life. Give me 80 years and call it good.
