why would anyone want that?

seriously?

you can't stop senescence. you might extend your lifespan via various means, but you're still going to end up feeble and demented.

I would much rather drop dead cleanly at 60 than live to 100 after 30 years unable to care for myself.

and I'm not really interested in these bullshit wishy-washy mealy mouthed "discussions" about how immortality is possible so long as we ignore all of those impossible things immortality relies upon.

it ain't gonna happen, and there ain't one damn person on this planet important enough to deserve it.
