Comment: Re:Who really cares about a "long life" (Score 1) 232 232

Good point. But I was trying to be brief and not write a dissertation.

What I mean is that what many people find "fun" can shorten your life. Whether it's bungee-jumping, car racing, skydiving, playing video games!, watching the telly from the couch, etc., ad infinitum all have certain risks.

I'd imagine that bungee-jumping is FAR riskier than playing video games. If that bungee breaks, it's all over. Some people like to play video games. Some people like to bungee-jump. It's all a personal matter, and a matter of an individual personally managing risk. The government has no business in deciding here.

Experiments must be reproducible; they should all fail in the same way.
