    Just a thought that popped into my mind. The obvious answer would be yes, but I don't know... What can you really do at 160 years old?

    Would you guys?

    It depends how ill I am, from my current lifestyle I can predict a crippling existence at that age and so I may have to decline such an offer

    I don't think I'll like living forever. You can't ever love someone because one day they will day but you will live on. You will have kids knowing that you would outlive them and that would be so hard when you go to their funeral.

    I'd be happy not to have kids if it meant I could live forever (or at least as long as I want) in good health.

    But realistically, if you live forever you would (generally) go to school/college/uni until 21. Then you would work until 60. Now with the money you accumulated from working, that would last you until you're about 90-100 depending on lifestyle, and then you would be on benefits (probably also in a care home) for the rest of your life. Would you still want to live forever?

    That's why I said, only as long as I'd be in good health. Obviously I don't want to be in a care home at all.

    Not in a million years, unless I had the same physical condition of at least some middle aged.

    Once it gets to the care home stage, I'm good.

    If I could be the oldest person who ever lived, then yes. I quite like the idea of being in the record books for something like that.

    Only if I could still look like and have the energy of what I would have at around 50. 50 isn't too old and you still have energy then so I would be happy to continue like that. Asking to look and act like a 20 yr old while 160 would be too much to ask
