The question:
If you could, would you want to live forever? Why or why not?


My short answer:
An absolute forever? No. It would mean not only outliving my friends and family, but also anyone's memory of them. Eventually, an immortal would outlive their country, see it fall into the ruin of society that we seem inevitably headed for. They would see the mountains they know erode to dust, see the oceans rise and fall as the earth ages. They would hear their language die. They would see stars wink out and the eventual expansion of the sun and obliteration of the earth, and they would still be here.

But if you meant more in the short term, sure, I'd love an extra thousand years or two.
