    No. It would be heartbreaking to keep seeing family members and friends die. Just that constant cycle of the younger generations living and dying whilst you remain. It would be awful.

    Exactly, thats why I'm surprised when people say they would. You wouldn't be able to connect properly with anyone.

    If I could still walk with relative ease, was in good health and had all my senses then perhaps. I just think it would interesting seeing how humanity progresses, how culture and language evolves, how politics continues, the effects of global warming and what not throughout the years. But it would be pretty terrible if you outlived all your family and friends. Plus I think I'd be a bit of a drain on society being on a pension for 92 years.

    assuming you didn't loose your marbles, you'd end up watching everyone you ever cared about dying, and then their kids and have no-one of anything like your own generation to talk to.

    you'd be trapped on your own in a world you increasingly don't understand for decades with nothing to do but scare yourself with daily mail headlines about muslims giving you teh cancer.

    To do what? To watch myself slowly die and grotesquely evade death for the last abnormal, unnecessary 60 years?

    The glorious, beautiful, almighty Bible gave us 3 score and 10 (60 years). Anything else is just stubborn longevity. Die already. :rolleyes:

    If they are replacing body parts like it's nothing by the time we're old and that means we can live stupidly long, then god dammit I'm gonna give it a shot. All this 3D stem cell bioprinting stuff sounds like it could allow this one day. I've got no hope for any sort of afterlife so I aim to linger here as long as I can manage.

    if medical science advances that far that 160 years becomes fairly common we're in for some interesting times...
    if you retire, how are people 100 years younger than you going to feel about paying your medical bills and pension?
    if you keep working till you drop how are people 100 year younger than you going to feel about having you hogging a job and blocking up the career ladder.

    If all it amounts to is slowly going bat**** insane in a care home for a few decades, then I'll gladly give it a miss. Once you're merely existing rather than actually living, then what's the point?

    No thanks. Being retirement age for nigh-on a century would be a nightmare.

    142 more years of dealing with human stupidity? I think not.
