Would you want to live forever?

A Google scientist who has been right about a number of other predictions says immortality can be achieved by 2030. Interesting, in that he doesn't seem to have a medical background. I personally have always expected to die, and not that it is something I am looking forward to, I accept it as inevitable. I don't think I could afford to live forever. I don't think the world can support people living forever. I mean what quality of life would you have when you are 110? Umm...I will save the living forever to other people.

Poor in general doesn't sound good, I've been borderline poor most of my adult life, the jobs I've had paid just enough for bills and food but usually I'd have trouble finding enough money to afford shoes and clothes let alone other things.
I am sure there are many like me who do not think their kids would have any future so refrained from bringing them into world...where are the jobs, and to live in pollution...yuck. So now that I am old and retired, it is difficult to plan forever ...financially too. I definitely would want to quit the scene by 75 or so.

No I would not want to live forever. They always say you only have 1 life, so make the most of it. Also, I have seen the movie "Bicentenial Man" with the late great Robin Williams. He was a robot who could live forever. He lived for a long time and kept seeing all his loved ones leave him. He decided to become human and die with his beloved. I have already accepted that when my time comes, it is what it is, whatever comes afterwards.
