    0:30but the study being cited found that "an extra half day in hospital in the 15 years before death for each additional year of life beyond age 60". So, lifespan is increasing faster than the time spent in the hospital? Does that mean healthspan is indeed being extended as well?

    Who paying taxes? Peoples paying taxes. Who should need to be health to pay taxes? Peoples need to be health to pay taxes. Who is working in hospitals? Peoples working in hospitals? Does they are only need to be health? No everyone in own country need to be health. Peoples need to pay taxes. Who will pay taxes if not humans?

    id like to be about a thousand.. i mean it was good enough for God in genisis, i say why not now.. but frankly.. i dont want to live anymore than God deems.. yeah yeah, religious fool, blah blah, ik the shtic.. idc.. frankly, God or no.. what makes me hate life is man... what we do to others, to ourselves, to the planet, etc... frankly i sometimes wish death would come sooner... but i will admit though, one thing in life i can fear is ageing... if i could die at my max life expectancy, but not age.. i could be fine with that..

    The max for me in my opinion is to die at the age of 150 because i would get bored of life tbh and want to see the afterlife.

    I would happily live forever if I didn’t have to age in a way that my health declined. I believe eternal life is possible.

    I really do want to live forever, nothing scares me more than the thought of my mind ceasing to exist permanently.

    The fact that our life has a deadline allows to value every second of it. I don’t think immortality is as great as it is cracked up to be.

    Nope. I wanna die. Why live so long. You know that just means you gotta make enough money to last 200 years and the job market is already tough because the older people won’t retire. Imagine if they can work for 200 years, and where we gonna put everyone. The planet can’t even handle the amount of people we have now!! When I’m like 70-80 I’m just gonna party hard and walk into the ocean

    We shouldn't end aging as it can cause increase in population growth and the global warming as well as the decrease in land mass for food n settlement

    The bible says 'you shall not kill'; letting someone to die knowing they could live is equal to killing. If you truly follow God's teaching, you will support eternal living.
