    Live forever or die in the next 5 minutes?

    At what rate am I aging?

    The question as presented is a bit of a paradox. I don't think I want either however one is inevitable.

    writing another dissertation, are we MM?

    I'd rather live forever. That way I could actually visit the stars like I've always wanted and not have to worry about the whole dying of old age before I get there thing. Hell, I could walk to Alpha Centuari if I wanted to.

    I choose the Kobayashi Maru test. If you know what that is you qualify as a genuine bass playing geek. :)
    And yes of course I would cheat on the test.

    Not sure about walking, I'd rather ride a wave of sound. I suppose it could be a walking bass line. If I go the mortal route than I will have my remains launched into the unknown.

    Dunno if you missed the memo, but there's no sound in space, bud. Nothing to walk on either, but I can at least kick my feet for a few million years while at a constant escape velocity.

    Jesus, man, you gotta build up to something like that.

    Probably the latter.

    Fair enough but don't take it quite so literal.

    Depends entirely on what every lasting life entails. Will I be in my 31 year old body forever or will I continually age until I rot, but not die? If I stay 31, are there any super powers involved? Can I survive the inevitable expansion and then implosion of the sun? Can I survive the vacuum of space? Can I fly through it? Without those powers, immortality will eventually get either boring or painful and I choose death in five minutes.

    Immortality in my current body if I can kill myself when I decide I've had enough would be a-okay with me. A few thousand years would be nice.

    Spending century after century wondering if this is the year we get it right, or did we find a habitable planet for when the sun makes it's curtain call. Did the super volcano erupt? Nah. Forever sounds like a lot of hooey to me man. Gimme 5 to talk to my kids and I'm solid.

    I'll take live forever. I don't want to die in the next 5 minutes. I'd like to see my son grow up...

  18. Do I have regenerative abilities ala Wolverine if I choose immortality? If so I choose to live forever. If not, at least let me light a cigarette before you start the timer.

    It all depends on where I'd be living....and as per TB rules, that's all I have to say about that.

    If you have composed and/or recorded any of the music in the archives of history than you will live forever.
