If you are ageless, with current fatal accident rate and all else being equal (of course it won't be), the average life span would be something like 400 years IIRC. Again assuming your frozen in age with a job and stuff.

My wife doesn't think i will make 60 with the shit i get up to. And tbh i am surprised i made it to 40. It has been touch and go a few times.

But if I did become ageless, i wouldn't assume i going to be dead anytime soon, and well not aging also has other benefits..... Why squander them?

Seriously what do you expect? Shaw Shank Redemption means Dirty Harry? Action films are .. not surprisingly filled with *ACTION*. That doesn't leave a lot of time for shit dialog. And lets face it. If you want a real plot read a book. 2 hours of dialog is always going to be the shallow end of plot.

Why does this shit get spewed forth every fucking time. By that logic we should never treat anyone for anything. After all artificially long life spans are clearly evil and will cause the downfall of all that is good. Just like comics, pron, video game, cell phones, self driving cars, robotics, AI... in fact crawl back the your cave while you still can.

We are already post evolution. Now we are getting up to re engineering! And before you start of with the "billions of years of evolution optimal mother nature" crap. Life is clearly *not* designed and could do with a bit of a intelligent designer if you ask me. there is always a better way, and just trying random things is not the best way to find it.
