what do you want out of life

what do you want out of life?

Health, Happiness and hot young tail

Immortality.

PS. And hot young tail.

Would you really want immortality? That could go very very wrong

Despite having seen the very overdone "immortality is sought after and
then turns out badly once you get it" fiction, i actually would be interested
in it. I'm not saying it wouldn't have it's pitfalls, but hey, death's a bitch
too right? Of course, i'm barring scenarios in which super-heroes would
trap me in an underwater tomb, or tie me up while a bird eats my organs
daily, or some such business. I honestly think that given my personality
the benefits would vastly out-weigh the pitfalls.

Sadly floating around in space for eons once the planet is destroyed by a
supernova would be dull, but once a new star forms, i can at least hope
the surrounding planets are inhabitable right?

Besides, imagine all the hot young tail you could pull before that
happened.

This is what I was thinking. Once all the other humans die out, you're really fucked.

Depends on what u mean by immortality:

a) you never die and could never die

b) you never die from natural courses but could get killed the way a regular person does (and could commit suicide)...

Oh i meant the real thing, but after thinking about the whole "supernova"
thing, it might be better to just go with plan B.

i think it would be iller if u were highlander...THERE CAN BE ONLY ONE

There are too many variables in the eternal life thing. Could you lose a leg or be paralysed? Do you age? etc.

Too many variables for what? Don't you think it's a stretch to consider the
concept to begin with? If you've made it that far, why are the variables so
troublesome?

(I'm not disagreeing that it's not possible because of said variables, but in
considering it, we seem to be automatically suspending our disbelief for
just a little while.)

If you can have immortality with the option of offing yourself, that's pretty much mint right there. I'd take it in a heartbeat.

i would think once your family is all gone and your alone, shit wont be fun any more right?

like you get older and see your parents die, then brothers/sisters, your children, your childrens children, etc.

if i kept seeing that i would feel real selfish and lose a reason to keep goin i guess

My family is almost entirely gone. I have a few step relatives and that's it. I have not wanted to stop living because of it.

-doug-

yea but do you have a wife or children? if you dont you got a goal now dontcha

I do not have a wife or children, and i would still like to live for reasons other than attaining either or both of those.

-doug-

yea your right, but in contexts of your like 150 years old and got nobody thats family around would suck, people who you care about and who care about you.... but its all depends of the person

Clearly i'm capable :)
