A rercent news article stated that half of the babies born today will live to be 100. It was also suggested a projected life expectancy of 167 for later generations.

Do you want to live to be a hundred? If so why?

No, definitely not!
Even with good health, one isn't able to function alone and I would hate to
be dependent on hospice health care personnel.

"Depends" is the only answer that makes sense to me.

@Merry Andrew,
Reasonably, it isn't, Merry..

It depends means that you take in account conditions that probably will be in effect by the time you are 100.

But right now, with the present conditions, "I wanna live forever" makes all sense..

Depends, yeah.

Reminds me of a convo had between a few of my relatives and myself. My uncle - who I respect very much - said with deadpan seriousness about living that long:
"Too many outlive their usefulness. Won't be me. You have my permission to off me if it comes to that. Hell, I'll do it myself!"

Oooohkay. He wasn't even kidding. He's got some strong feelings about welfare and indian affairs too. lol.

Well I joked that if it really was about outliving your usefulness - there would be a lot of young people on the chopping block too. Not so much to do with age.

With a serious look, he says "Damn right".

He cracks me up.

Probably, clever George!
