      I won't. I'll be dead. No one in my family has ever lived past 90.

      They are looking for long term loyal customers. Hope they didn't mean 2010.

    99?  I probably won't even make it to 65! but then, at one time I was convinced I wouldn't make it to 30! and I zoomed on through 30.  I hope I'll be hubbing for the rest of my days though, however long they may be.  Maybe ease up a little and only spend an hour or two a day at it.  I have so much I want to and have to do, I doubt if I'll get the chance to be truly bored ever again!  only if I ignore the things I could be doing will I ever get bored.

    by the time i am 99 ( should i make it) I guess we wont even have to type- just say the words and it will all appear as if by magic- floating on to the living room wall at the slightest wish- but the web will be so overloaded that we probably will be barred

    No body know when we will die. I just spend my time to write a hub and I don't have a time frame to do my hobby. Juts lets it flows like water.

    It would be interesting. I hear a lot of great stories from the elderly at the nursing home... hmmm there's an idea...

    I'm not saying I'm not going to be living at 99, what if 99 is the new 50?

    I would love to live to 99 if I still had independance and enough physical and mental health to live alone.

    But the reality is, most people who reach that age get terrible conditions such as Alzheimers.

    I know that it may seem extreme, but I would sooner be dead than completely mindless. Clearly if I developed such a condition at a young age, e.g. 60, then I would do everything and hope that my family would do everything they could to fight it.

    Ultimately though, I would pray for some other condition to take me quickly before I forgot the names of my children and started wiping poo on the walls.

    That said, the man next door to me is 86 and his only problem is heavy Asthma and hard hearing. He still drives, still walks up the stairs, and is a cheerful man with a son that he cherishes.

    We all hope for a long healthy life, but I would sooner die at 70 without serious and prolonged suffering.

    I'd be long since retired on all the money I've made....might go to bingo and become a true grandad and wear slippers and a pipe even though I don't smoke anymore.

    I'll be counting all of my money and might even swim in it too!

    A Gypsy, at a party once read my Palm....She told me I had longevity, that I would live to be at least 99 years old.  I thought for a moment before I replied, IS THAT ALL??  She laughed and said, "I SAID AT LEAST 99!"  Ok, I thought, I can live with that answer.

    I think I might have gotten a bit bored of HubPages by the time I'm 99. I never stick at anything for too long.
