According to some tests, I am expected to live around 90. I would love nothing more than to extend that lifespan and have more and healthy years ahead of me.

 

I am aware, though, that neither my lifestyle, nutrition or other things can save me from a premature death in an accident. I could die even before I get close to reaching those 90 years. You never now, you may be walking on the street one day when a vehicle hits you and kills you, or you could be involved in an assault/robbery, and that's it. The odds are inarguably there.

 

I guess we'll see what our future technology will do for the length of our lifespans. I hope there will be some very remarkable improvement, and I hope to live long enough to see and profit from it.

There's definitely truth in that...

According to https://livingto100.com/ my life expectancy is 92.

Given the current rate of increase in life expectancy, my actual age will reach my life expectancy 26 years after that date, when I am 118

I'm both hoping and expecting that nanotechnology and medicine in general will be completely revolutionised by 2110 (I actually expect way before then), and that life expectancy will accelerate over time and that I will end up being able to live forever.

 

Which is different to living forever.  I suspect that I will make enough changes to my brain that it will be difficult to class me as the same person any more, but then that's already happened in the past 20 years of my life.

However even more dramatic than that, I expect that, at some point between a few hundred years from now and a few tens of thousands of years from now, I will feel that I am done, and will perform a dramatic change in my brain that will end up with me not really be the same person exactly any more, moreso than just a gradual change over time.

I'm guessing that I'll only make it to 60.

According to that website, I'll live to 89. Which puts my death at 2089 (if nothing happens from now)

Apparently I'm going to live to 98 according to that website. Some "upgrades" will probably be required, then.

I love to use the 1st ammendment all the time so it wouldn't surprise me if some shady figs showed up to my house and capped a .556 in my central lobe

^Amazingly, it's the most popular option on the poll. I didn't expect that, but I guess it goes to show how optimistic we, as futurists, are.

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.

Anyway is you guys' motivation to see all the advances and stuff, or do you simply want to live for the sake of not dying? Frankly I think living too long without all the loved ones you have now would be relatively depressing.

You'll have new loved ones, though.

Unless some surprises pop up, realistically, probably between 75 and 95 years old, thus dying between 2067 and 2088.

I'm too much of an interesting person to die an early/casual death.

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! :)

I very much disagree. Look at your grandparents, or any other elderly member of your family. They probably don't have their parents, or all of their siblings and cousins any more, but they do have their children, grandchildren, nephews and nieces. Do they want to die because they no longer have their loved ones they grew up with? I highly doubt it. That's the great thing about family generations, they can carry on for as long as you wish them to.
