I have some great genes and Livingto100 puts me at 98, so 2097-ish. I'd be fine with living to 80, but hopefully if i make it to 98 some advances can take me to 150. Maybe then I'll try some cryogenics. But realistically I expect to die around 90 or 100.
You can try cryogenics (perhaps with a very good chance of success in regards to getting revived with most or all of your memories still being intact) even if you will die at age 80.
Also, if you will live to age 150+ with effective anti-aging technology, chances are that you will live long enough to see a cure to aging developed within your lifetime, thus allowing you to use it in order to achieve rejuvenation and an indefinite lifespan.
You're a male, correct? Also, if you don't mind me asking, can you please share some information in regards to hold long your ancestors and/or other family members lived?
My plan is to live as long and full as possible and just hope like hope I can make it to a future time where I can just be cryogenically frozen and have my mind downloaded into a robot or clone or something before I "wake back up". (I'm gonna need some wealthy descendants for this!)
Yeah, I've always figured, you can't just live to 10,000 and somehow die afterward. In 10,000 years, it will be extremely difficult to die. We probably won't even be biological anymore.
I am a male, cursed with the short life. The grandparents from my pa's side are in their 80's and going very strong... both in mind and body. My grandparents from my mom's side died from technically unnatural causes pretty young, but her grandmother lived to be 97 before she died a year or two ago. Don't have any close family with diabetes, cancer, heart disease, any disabilities, etc. Haha whenever I doubt myself I just use my genes as a source of hope that maybe I can live forever!

For those not in the know, the Dallas Cowboys are an American Football team, and they are terrible. But I must stay strong.
