Immortality

Being by no means able to die would suck. Majorly.

I don't know why anyone in their right mind would possibly consider this as a benefit.

Apart from the obvious disads everyone you know and love will grow old and die, but that's in the short term. (well, for someone who lives forever, you could argue that everything is in the short term)

In the long term, just the thought of it is almost unbearable. Imagine the human race dies out within a few centuries, millenia, whatever, doesn't matter, leaving you on a deserted planet all by yourself. But, if the human race does get wiped out, it means that the planet is no longer habitable, possibly very very cold from nuclear winter or comet hitting the earth, which you would have to endure the pain of, but not be able to die from.

Or, if for some reason the whole world is blown up. Or you're no longer on it for some reason. Everyone would die in space due to lack of oxygen, food, and, well, anything. But not you. You would keep floating forever, and ever, and ever. And ever ever ever ever ever ever ever ever ever ever.
Just sitting there.

Or perhaps you have velocity, meaning that some time you will make contact with something. But not for a long, long, long, long, long, long time. Perhaps 100 billion years. At the least. You wouldn't be able to lie down comfortably, without gravity, so it would be like the longest, most boring, most uncomfortable car trip you've ever taken, times a trillion. Not to mention the lack of oxygen and food, which you again would suffer the pain from but not have the mercy of death. You would be eternally bored, cold, starving, out of breath, and uncomfortable.

A scary thought.



The immortal character in "The Restaurant At The End Of The World" once said something to his computer like: "Computer, are there any movies in the nearest star systems for rent that I haven't seen over 30,000 times?"

Wow TA you convinced me.
I used to think immortality would be cool.

But now I realize that drifting through space for an eternity with no amenities like cold beer and whatnot would not be very fun at all.  Not to mention all the other amenities (ahem)...


How about a compromise though: immortality except for getting fried in a high temperature.  That way you have 5 billions years to kick around before the sun explodes.  I think I could go for that.


Here's a question for you:  would you choose the 5 billion year option if the first 1000 years of said immortality was spent in a headache?

Not a bad idea, however you'll have to babysit the mankind to prevent them from dying out until your time expires. If that happens you'll end up trying to set yourself on fire for 5 billion years.

More details on that, please! How bad would the headache be?

The headache would be about as bad as the first 5 seconds of a "cold" headache when it's not yet super bad but you know it's coming and you are doomed.

(re: cold headache....you know when you drink something that's really cold really fast.  Some people don't get these)

But if I use drugs or get really drunk to feel anything, will the headache disappear? (I am assuming drinking heavily and using drugs won't have any negative effect on me since I'll be immortal, so I can use all I want ) Also, come to think of it, I'll never get sick, so I'll never have to use the condoms again!!!

Sure, you won't die of AIDS, but you can still get a nasty rash from other sexually transmitted diseases, no?

As for "cold headache", I'm not sure but I think it is commonly refered to as brainfreeze.

Hmm... many of those and other diseases are incurable. Are you saying that I'll have to live for 5 billion years with EVERY disease??? (I am assuming that I'll get all of them eventually.) Well, f*** this immortality then!

Well, viral diseases wouldn't be a problem if not for the fact that temperature still kills you. HIV, for example, is destroyed at 60C or so. The problem is that this temperature is lethal for humans.

So, essentially, all I'll need to do would be swimming in the molten steel Terminator-style. But what will happen to me after that? I'll evaporate, yet I won't die?

Immortality should only work for the right people. Germany wouldn't be a good place to live if Hitler were immortal.

Testing rat wouldn't work, because how would they know if it didn't work, or if it was fatal?

They give you some pill, you're fine, and they say oh it's all good and it turns out it kills everyone else.

But yeah, it would be fine if you were the one testing, not being the tested.


You could never get into a relationship, and if you were ugly, you would be pretty lonely forever.

Think about it.
It would suck.

One good thing would be you could have investments in the bank which could last a thousand years and become a bijillionaire


Also, you wouldn't evaporate, because that would cause death. You don't have anything that would cause death. You would just feel very very sunburnt

someone watches futurama too much

as for the testing, more testing to do with experiments with stuff that doesnt kill you. not testing suicide pills and the like. testing vacines

or you could always spend a few hundred years trying to outsmart hawking
