Because if you don't die anytime soon you need to book in advance to have someone wipe your backside.

Because you could also not die whenever... and if you're a pretty young person then this is the more likely scenario

What's the alternative? Do nothing for the rest of your life?

I hope to be around for at least several more decades, so I might as well do something that will put in me in a better position in the future than I am today. Then there are those who will come after me to consider, children, grandchildren, or if not my own, the children of my family and friends and future generations as a whole. I'd like to in some small way leave the world they will occupy in slightly better shape than it was when I was alive, and that can only happen if I live as good and productive a life as I can while I'm here, not just slide into destructive, nihilistic decadence, because, "**** it, I'm gonna die anyway".
