There is a difference between quantity and quality. Leaving aside all the population problems, if I could be healthy, and content, maybe. My mom lived to be 82. She smoked 3 packs a day, didn't eat well, was an alcoholic, and spent all day every day sitting on her couch watching TV. God knows how long she would have lived if she had taken care of herself. She was not a happy person, and despite living to 82, she was not healthy. She had COPD, dementia, arthritis, diabetes, cancer 3 times,and she went blind. The last 10 years of her life she would always tell me she wished she would die. She ended up getting lung cancer a 2nd time, and that is what killed her. It was not a pleasant way to go. So, if living forever is like that, then heck no!
