immortality seems really fucking unattractive to me. /gets the joke but feels strongly about the subject of acceptance of death

Tohno

Sure. I mean, I look forward to what cometh after death. But it's a fun little scenario, since you'd never face death.

Lemme rephrase it so it's more fun.
Alright, if you had immortality, eternal youth, and regeneration powers, what would you do with it?

MZeroX

I believe there isn't anything after death. Life is what you get as it is. But accepting death as your ultimate end in and of itself is a good thing. Thus, it is purely against my moral aesthetic to desire immortality.

But to entertain the the "fun" portion... I'd look for ways to kill myself magnificently. After all, I'm not invulnerable, but I'll return to full health shortly thereafter, so might as well do everything in my power to exercise that ability. Moreover, you'd have so much time that after you've done everything to your fancy, you'd just end up bored. Sure you might have a blast for a long time depending on what you like to do, but eventually everything turns into tedium.

You can do that now.

You can. Also HAVING TEA WITH THEM IS THE MOST AWESOME USAGE OF IMMORTALITY I'VE SEEN SO FAR

Continue.

...i would spend large portions of my time translating books into tolkein-elvish and the covert sneaking them a shelf at a time into public libraries all over canada.

because shit would be funny.


shut up, lots of free time doesnt amount to intelligent ideas

i do wonder, does "regeneration powers" destroy or simply counteract things like viruses?

KENTA

Kinda surprised you don't already do that.

it takes an assload of time for just one page, if i got bored more often and had access to publishing materials i would probably be in the newspaper by now as the elf-bastard

well, probably a better title than that :/

Whatever the fuck I like, because there aren't any consequences (well, as long as you're careful about it, and make sure not to get captured). I'd do what I thought was right and screw what other people told me to do, and because I'm invincible I could deal with problems normal people wouldn't dare to take on.

Yeah pretty much the only thing you have to worry about is being caught by some organization who dissects you over and over again to try and learn how you tick.

I guess the trick would be to lie low and not get caught ^_^ You'd still be capable of getting away with a lot of shit though I reckon.

You'd have to have done some pretty nasty stuff for them to force that on you. Though it also sounds like the part of a fantasy/sci-fi story. Fast forward a few hundred years. Global disaster. Imminent death. They come and dig you out to help save the world :)

Who wants to live forever?
Who dares to love forever...when love must die?
But...touch my tears, with your lips
Touch my world, with your fingertips
AND WE CAN HAVE FOREVAH
AND WE CAN LOVE FOREVAH
FOREVER IS OUR TODAY

But seriously (although you could make an argument that I was being serious above) living forever would be depressing. If it was the type of immortality that makes you stop growing, it'd be even more so, because everyone around you would grow older and perish while you would linger on. Plus, in the heat end of the world, you'd still be floating around. And I'm not sure I would like living on without my wife (lulz, don't have a wife now, but you know, if I did).

You clearly don't speak motivator-language.
Immortality is for the vain and the foolish. And I'm neither....usually. :p

Hey, being a wanderer isn't a good thing. You are simply wandering because you have nothing to do anymore. And there it goes, you're bored, always bored to undeath.

How grown up all of you. I'd give immortality a shot. Besides, I don't believe anything exists that can't be undone. Even immortals have death waiting for them eventually at some point.

Mike1984

Or you could have just done good things but aimed at a horrible regime. Also, I was thinking them just trying to get you out of the way, rather than actually "punishing" you as such.

Yeah, physics tells us that.

Theocrass

^^ What is that supposed to mean?

I'm just supposed to be happy that I can outlive my children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren? Not to mention my little brother, younger cousins, nieces, and whatever children they have?

Also, I believe in an afterlife, and I'd like to get there eventually so I could see my grandfather again. Certainly, not for many decades. But waiting till the end of the world? No thank you.

Mike1984
June 1st, 2011, 03:06 PM
Well, if I'm immortal, why can't my family also be immortal?

I mean, yeah, outliving everyone you love would suck (I've pointed this out to Lantz with his version of the Nasuverse, actually, which has Sakura being essentially immortal, but her daughter (from what I can tell) isn't, and nor are Shirou or Rin), but then again dying also sucks if you don't believe in an afterlife. And, if you do, then you essentially are immortal, right?

I fully and completely understand the logic of not wanting to outlive everyone you know. Hell I can even empathize with it slightly. But you see, the thing is... I'm not that mature. Right now, as I am, I honestly would give immortality a shot. Maybe one day 300 years from now I'll sit down in a corner and cry and wish I were dead. But right now, immortality sounds interesting.

It's Koto and Type and Zero who aren't sane because they aren't discussing it like the rest of us are! :D

there isn't anything to discuss. unless multiple people you like are immortal as well, shit's going to be boring unless you just spend your time fucking with people or yourself. and if you fuck with people too much, you're just gonna end up in jail or prison without death as a means of escape. immortality by yourself sucks.

Well, I think that if you do not believe in afterlife, the only problem would be how you would die, and not death itself.

Provided it is not a painful death, you should be alright, as you will not give a crap about your death after you have already died.

Seriously. You could easily set yourself up as the next jesus/buddha/whatever other deity you want, people would worship the hell out of you once you chopped off your own head and then got back up, you'd have most of the planet believing you're a freaking god.

I could also do work as a living crash dummy, giving valuable feedback like "ouch", "that hurt like a son of a bitch", and my personal favourite, "I didn't know a leg could turn that way".
