Boring.


Living much longer than everyone else would obviously be a great advantage. Drop $5 in a bank account now, shag your brains out with every girl for the next 1000 years, and you'll be rich off the interest, still the same age physically and you can shag for another 1000! When you get bored of having all the money and pussy in the world, you would have plenty of time to do other cool things like fly helicopters or become a rock superstar.


Here's a question for those of you who think forever is too long to live: Would you be so happy about it if it you were going to die in the next thirty seconds? Is there such a thing as a good time to die? It's sort of like asking, when is a good time to catch herpes or for all your teeth to rot out, isn't it?

Some of us already have all of that, but having it for the next 1000 years would also be nice.

Well Russell..It's nice to be able to live a long time..but if you live forever, youll see things happen over and over again, each time more traumatizing than the last... youll see beautiful things ..and then youll see them passover and die.. youll see wars, and youll see the aftermath.

After youve done all the shagging and rocking and helicopter piloting there is to be done... what then?.. You still have forever to live. Not only would it get boring and mentally unsettling.. but part of the reason most of us dont take life for granted is that we have a very finite amount of it. If your supply of it is unlimited tho, it will become unprecious to you. You wont regard your life as a commodity anymore.. because to you it wont be. You wont be careful or at all respectful to your body..and youll end up torn up, broken up and diseased... but still alive (cue the warm fuzziness feeling).

Life is precious, in part, because of its finity. We make the most of our time, while not being wreckless most times.. then we die. Death IS a part of life. If we did not have a finity to it.. we would not be cautious, or at all respecting of life, or be motivated to do anything to make ourselves great.

It's a good thing life works the way it does.

2075. then i will have seen the first contact (5.4.2063) ^^ and, on the other hand, i will be 89 then. i had a grandma that became 93 before she died, but the last years weren´t life what i call it. i feel my energy will be burnt down then, and you have to know when to leave the stage. if not, the others will make you leave. and that´s something i want to avoid.

Formula 1 racing?

The point is, I (and most of you) won't be able to do these things in life, because it is finite and we are competing with the rest of the human race who also want to do things like fly helicopters and be rock superstars. There simply aren't enough helicopters or job openings for rock superstars to go around. In fact, most people only really get about twenty good years. Once a man hits 40 without having achieved anything great, he never will.

I imagine that for the unsuccessful and mundane masses, after 40 life becomes like a boring game of Civilisation 4 where you loose in slow motion, and after the long fruitless struggle you get told you excercised the leadership skills of Dan Quale.

well after the shagging, rocking, helicopter riding, bungie jumping, formula 1 racing, Starfighter piloting, starship hijacking, wormhole jumping and (insert 99999999 more extreme activities) ..you still have a trillion years to do...(?) with.

At some point you'll reach an apex at which mortal life has nothing new or unboring to offer... and that's when youll get boring and careless..and have a moot existence from then until..the end of time (but hey..if there's gonna be a big crunch and another big bang, you'll get to see that.)

Alright you win. So, can I just have another few thousand years of youth to get all that out of my system first?
