You betcha!! If I could live to be 300+ years old I still wouldn't be ready to die - as long as I'm able to get around, afford to live comfortably, and in fairly good health and can still be happy or at least "content".

The key is to stay in good shape so you can still get around and think. If life is miserable than it may be no fun to prolong it, but I plan on having a good time till 120 or 130.

I am not looking forward to living to nearly 100 years of age or beyond but I am resigned to it as it is a standard in my family. My grandmothers, grandfathers, and great grandparents all lived to between 98 and 102! Living to that old is not what I would choose but it is the hand I expect I was dealt.

But only if I have a good quality of life. I don't want to be blind, deaf, have Alzheimer's and be in a home. As long as I am still living in my own house and be able to look after myself then I'd quite happily live to 100.

You only say that because 70 seems a long way off. When 70 comes you'll find reasons to hang in there!

It would be cool to live forever.

Maybe...if I could live a life without pain, diseases, and actually find happiness even in old age, and die peacefully.
Otherwise, I'd much rather die around the time I turn seventy. Eighty, at best.

I hope not unless they find a way to give us a new body( and there is research on that). I do worry about it. The women in my family have all lived to that or close to it(with the exception of one that was murdered at 33). The males have all died young in violent deaths. So I really have little to gauge from.
