    No idea what age you SHOULD get it, but yeah I think I would probably want to stay somewhere between 24 and 30.

    as for your earlier post about me not getting the point - that docu i saw was about whether or not old women should be having babies because they are in a high risk category for illnesses and dying etc, so this particular woman (there were a few in that docu) had like some sorta weakened immune system and the point was that all this was associated with age, but they still went ahead and had kids, then they just died a couple of years later - if they even lasted that long, i just think its selfish oh and btw, these were single women as well

    if this miracle potion youre talkin about prolongs the aging affect and you still look like someone in their 20s when ur 890yrs old well then im sure having the kid would be fine, but honestly, the way life goes its an unwritten rule that you dont outlive ur kids, no parent would wanna do that - all i see are downsides to this agrument, a definite no no for me

    ok ok ok - so after this 1,000 yrs of being a 20 yr old then what happens - ur just prolonging inevitability - we all are going to die at some point, and depending on your beliefs *which i wont get into* morally speaking i think alot of ppl would opt out of this quick fix

    Oh ok, well I'm sure if it comes along it will be optional. If I get the chance though I will look forward to an extra 900 years of the pleasure of life.

    *cough* How do I say this... 1,000 years, 20 years - what's the difference then? If it's inevitable and it's "moral" not to prolong it, there's that bridge I mentioned some posts ago.

    morally speaking - was more targeted at what peoples beliefs and ideals are about life and what you should and shouldnt do with it, it gets into a whole beliefs/religion side which we arent allowed to talk about so I cant say anything more about that lol

    but on the other hand, if it was mandatory to have that potion, i guess yeah i'd be heading for that bridge geronimo!!!!!! lol

    Well, those whose morality is all about death have the right to it, I completely agree.

    I can't imagine it being mandatory, though. It would cost a nice buck, I'm sure of that.

    Interesting how the discussion is split right down the middle between philosophical lines. Very consistent…

    It would just radically change the economy, 90% less children so less schools. People with skills that they have perfected to an amazing level from hundreds of years practice and learning. I think it would generate far more wealth than it costs.

    Imagine if Leonardo Da Vinci was alive today and lived to 1000!

    If peoples religious beliefs make them not want to live to 1000 thatís fine by me, as long as they donít try and stop everyone else too. To put it politely I would be rather if someone tried to take my 900 years away because of their beliefs.


    Off Topic:


    Saul do you think a moderator should put split this off into a new thread? or do you like it in your birthday thread?

    ....littlegreenstepper, im going to make it my business to come up with a potion that counteracts this one

    heres a really realistic downside to this 1000yr plan - what if there was a really really bad person in your life and you had no power whatsoever to get away from them and u were stuck with them for 1000yrs or unrequited love or forever being broke, forever having emotional problems, etc - i think its silly to just say yeah wooo i'll live forever YAY! its just silly..

    if leo was around today, he wouldnt be as popular as he is nor would he have changed and influenced the art world as we know it now - they'd put him in a nut house!

    Well, I think if you have problems, you should sort them out. Death is a pretty lame solution.

    As I keep saying, you can always live a short life if you want to, no one is forcing you to live longer. You could equally refuse all the other medical advances that make you live longer such as vaccinations, anti-biotics, alergy tests, surgery etc. Remember in the Bronze Age your average life span was 18 years old, in the early 20th Centry your average life span was 30-40, now in a good country the average life span is over 80!
    Living to 1000 is just another step, you might as well argue that you shouldn't live over 18 but your current long life span has been taken for granted.

    With regards to Leonardo Da Vinci I was more talking about his genious in Science, Engineering and Medicine. For example he designed the worlds first glider but never got round to building it, however recently a glider was built using his exact design and it flew! If he had built it we would have started understanding flight 15th centry!
    He was a Genious!

    And if the people from Big Brother are not in nut houses, then I doubt Leonardo Da Vinci would be in one!

    im not saying death is a solution, im saying it would be pretty awful to be stuck in that scenario full stop, nevermind for hundreds of years!! - like think of it in terms of human trafficking, not really a great life in those terms at any time but to think you're not going to be out of that for hundreds of years is crazy

    Edit:

    dont get me started on big brother - btw that is a nuthouse - so technically we're better off with them in there, imagine them on the outside!!
