Someone brought this up at work and I was just wondering what people here would do. Anyway would you rather:

A) Be invincible (you could not die or be disfigured) until you were 80 years old and then you carked it.


B) Be at your peak physical condition (mid-late 20's or something like that) forever but you could be killed.

With A you will age naturally like a normal person, so when you are 75 for example you will look like a 75 year old. Also you won't be able to feel pain either but still have all your other senses such as pleasure Wink

Imagine bungee jumping with no rubber band, hitting the ground at a good speed, and walking away unscathed.  That would be extreme.

I'm going to be different and say A, how horrible would it be to meet the love of your life in situation b and have to watch them grow old and die, maybe even your children and grandchildren too... no thanks.

I'd much prefer A a it means you know that you have 80 years in which to live a healthy, sickness free life, and if you find love age with them, rather than just watch them yourself, so bring on invincibility :)

Yeah you'll be like a normal person so you can get sick and injured. You'll just stop aging at your optimum age which is like late 20's or something like that and continue living like that.

By far I'd rather opt for:

There are plenty of people around that I wouldn't like to live forever.  What would happen to the suicide bomber who couldn't die?

PS - Why did the Koala fall out of the tree?

Because he was dead!
