Question What would you prefer?

Living till 80 for sure without health problems and such, but die a week after you hit 80, or live normally like you are now?

Well, even if I guess its pessimistic, perhaps I'd rather pass on. Living like a "vegetable" hooked up to a million tubes and pills isn't living....

Well, I gave you the full answer in mIRC

I think I would take the first one, better live a good and full life than postponing something that will eventually come.

True, I think the first option is better. Eighty years is a long time and relatively not much longer than the 90 or so you might become otherwise.

Well, people are tending to live longer with better health anyway... That's a tough call... I think I'd just keep going on the way I'm going now and take my chances.

That´s more probable for me, in Brazil it´s hard to see some one older than 70
I think if I live until 71 it will be great.

I'd live the way I am.
I'm not corcerned about death, I believe conciousness can not be distroyed. Most likely, when I'll die I'll wake up to the next layer of reality.
I'd also rather live with disabilitys then have my death date pre-planned.
(heck, its sad, but as long as I can controll a computer, I don't think I would worry about how disabeled I was )

Life is a gamble. I may not make 80. I might far surpass it. And who knows what condition I'll be in? I certainly don't. But part of what makes living exciting is uncertainty. And I think that the closer you got to 80, the more you'd start regretting your decision. Especiailly with the condition that you live to 80 without health problems. Assuming you stay fit, you'd have no real reason to want to go. Once you've made 80, why not 81, 82, 85? Nope. I'll take plain old boring unpredictable living.

I don't care, really. I'd prefer to just leave my life as it is. More exciting that way.
