    If you could live to be 150 yrs old would you want to?

    I recently read that 20 yrs from now modern medicine could have people living to 150yrs old. I just don't see how you could have much quality of live at that age.

    Sometimes it seems it will take me that long to get all those 10,000 little things done that for some reason we all seem to have to do.Having said that - I would only want to live that long if others I know and care for can live that long - otherwise I think I would just roll over and die from loneliness.

    As medicine advances,  quality of life at an older age should get better.  If I could live to 150 and still have my wits about me and a reasonable level of physical ability, then yes, I would.

    I would want to live to 150 only if I felt a whole heck of a lot better than I feel now at 60.  It sort of snuck up on me all at once - and OUCH

    Yes, why not. In any case the maximum life span of 80 or 100 years was not decided by me anyway. The world and all that it has to offer cannot be experienced fully even in 150 years. Moreover modern technology takes us beyond the limits or our very solar system.

    I wouldn't want to live past the age that I can physically get out and play, whatever age that may be. A good wonder drug that takes all your aches and pains away would be great.

    Yep no doubt about it! I'ss find a way to have a lot of quality of life.

    That will give me more time to do that.

    By that time science and innovation may have found a way to help us have a better quality life at 150.
