When you look in the new in the past week you will have noticed that World's oldest living person dies at age 116 and a question came to mind how old do you want to be when you reach the end of your journey in life? Myself I hope no later than 80 years, if my body will hold up for that many years....

you say that now, but when you're 79 and they're rebuilding bodies and replacing body parts as an outpatient procedure, and the expected lifespan is 150, you may think differently. when i was growing up, i swore that i didn't want to live past 30...i'm pretty glad that i have!

Im not so sure I want to live another 80 years unless, of course, they were as good as the last 70 but I'm afraid I'm old fashioned and I just can't accept the way life is being abused today.

I want to live long enough that I can still do what I need to do and be a burden on no one.If that meant 50,then so be it.

For some reason I have always thought I would die at age 67. I would have seen all my children grow up and also see a few grandchildren. That gives me another 26 years. I have four children and 1 grandchild.
