    I'd rather die young, in part because when you die young, then you're forever young. You attain a certain kind of agelessness/eternal youth in the eyes of those who remember you.

    I'd rather live to see myself grow old and flashback on happy times and great achievements I made and awesome things I pursued when I was young, and I'd also prefer to grow old to see new innovations in the world. It's a hard question though because it would be nice to always be known to have an youthful aura too =).

    So what are you waiting for, lol? You're young, aren't you?

    Jokes aside, of course no one wants to be old, ugly, weak and useless. The ideal is to be young forever. But at the moment, I really hope I become really old, like 100+ years or something, or at least old enough until we get the technology for immortality, and then I'd just transform my 100 year old body back to when I was 18 or something.

    But then again, immortality technology might arrive much closer in time, like in the 2040s or something.

    Grow old, grumpy and smelly and enjoy every freaking part of it. Not going to happen as my "genetic age" judging by all men in my close family, is around 70. My father passed 71 and is laughing he is already oldest male within family memory.
    So with healthy lifestyle, gym and studying / using brain intensively I hope for ca 75 years of age. Max 80. So it's like past the middle line for me already.

    Geralt remained silent. Tired, he had nothing to say. “How... How will it happen?” he asked her at last, coldly and without emotion. “I will take you by the hand,” she replied, looking him straight in the eye. “I will take you by the hand and lead you across the meadow, through a cold and wet fog.” “And after? What is there beyond the fog?” “Nothing,” she replied, smiling. “After that, there is nothing.”

    I'm 20. By die young, I mean "young for dying" not actually "die as a young man". For me somewhere around 55 would be ideal.

    Yeah, it was a joke. That said, if I make it to 100, I'll still be lifting weights and eating my vitamins and shit like that, just to stay as young as possible. It's unbelievable that some people in their 70s can barely take a shit or tie their shoes. In Japan, diapers are sold out to their old folks, lol. And that's Japan, where everyone is super healthy.

    Its coming VERY soon actually....Professor George Church of Harvard is working on genetically programming the human body to reverse the effect of aging. When I reached out to him, I was told in roughly 5 years he'll have it ready for humans, its currently being trialled in dogs. Take that how you will. While I cant vouch for the 5 year time frame, its just a matter of time before they crack the anti aging dilemma.

    Also, scientists have figured out a way to genetically double the lifespan of a type of worm which usually lives for 2 weeks. They managed to genetically engineer them to live for 5 weeks which is more than double their lifespan. So theoretically if both of the above can be transferred to humans, your talking about the potential to live close to 200 and feel like your 30. It really is not farfetched to say we will see this all come to life in our lifetimes.

    Live to see myself grow old if growing old meant you wouldn't be at risk of having stroke, heart attack, prostate surgery etc. Growing old can be painful if you don't take care of yourself.

    I'd like to see myself grow old, mainly because I want to challenge myself to lead a healthy life until I die. I play football at a very competitive level, and I can already see that recovery times have increased for me. As a 20-something, I could play a good 100 minutes and go for a run after. Now, I am feeling sore all over, and I need to spend more time stretching.

    On the plus side, I have become extremely watchful about how I move, what I eat, and how my body reacts to what I eat, and so on.

    I'd love to see how long I can keep this up. That is, for how long all this taking care won't seem like hard work.
