I'll bet all the possible side effects will make you wish you were dead.

:lol: I can already hear the commercial. A calm female voice rattling off the terrifying and graphic side effects as seniors run on the beach, with soothing new age music playing in the background.

First of all, I call BS. and second of all I agree with other postees that we dont need to live that long. theres no where to live anyway, we are going to doom ourselves, and overpopulation is the way it's going to happen. the birthrate isn't equal to the deathrate in this world. more people are being born than dying. should be the other wayy around if you ask me.

I wouldn't take that pill if you paid me. Who knows wtf it does to your body. what if it gave you cancer? what if it ****ed with your brain and you became a vegetable afterwards? or maybe you get an ulcer? who knows. i say it's a bad idea and i don't really believe that there is a pill like that because wouldn't we all have heard about it on the news by now? "ASTONISHING BREAK THROUGH IN THE HEALTH SCIENCES! MAGIC PILL!" I still smell BS. =]

We held hands on the last night on earth.  Our mouths filled with dust, we kissed in the fields and under trees, screaming like dogs, bleeding dark into the leaves.  It was empty on the edge of town but we knew everyone floated along the bottom of the river.  So we walked through the waste where the road curved into the sea and the shattered seasons lay, and the bitter smell of burning was on you like a disease.  In our cancer of passion you said,

"Death is a midnight runner."

I'm positive that this will go wrong in horrible, horrible ways.

why the hell would you wanna live till your 100?...most people's body and brain are beat down waaaaay before that...NO THANK YOU, I'M GOOD!!

My great grandmother danced with her doctor on her 100th birthday (a waltz).  She had childhood memories of hiding her bustle in a haystack when she walked into town because her mother forced her to wear one and she thought it was "old fashioned".  She stowed away on a clipper ship to come to America.  She got to watch men walk on the moon.

I'd love to live to be 100.  Of course this means I'll probably kick the bucket at 70.

Only 100?  Some already go beyond that.  Come on, where's the 200 and 300 years doses?

I work with the mentally unstable and some elderly.  Some 85 year olds and above are 85% depressed people.  These  people lived through such horrible times and most have outlived children and grandchildren and most of them want to die...they mostly look at their longevity as a curse more than a blessing...i think this pill is inhumane for one of several reasons...and  including the fact that only the rich and powerful will enjoy this, do we really want these people taking over?? seriously....

Surely it won't be mandatory to take it. The rich and powerful might get easier access to it, but they have easier access to everything else. They'll be 100 years old, but nothing but a dripping blob of botox.

I just happened to download this documentary. Horizon: Don't Grow Old

This guy studied a perticular breed of human. They were jews or something like that. There was a woman who looked 60-70 but was in fact 102 years old. These people often smoked two cigerettes a day for their entire lives. This woman seemed very lively and it would appear she could live another 20 years. The scientists took a look at there genes and found perticular genes that they have and he basically put them in a pill. The main conclusion to aging in this documentary was how many genes you have that last longer. Basiclly if you are made up a genes that multiply and deteriorate tyhen you get old faster and if you have lots genes that have natural longevity then you live longer. There was also another experiemnt someone done where they got old people from a place deader then a grave yard and put them into a apartments that were styled like the 40's apartments. This was to create an illusion as if the were back in time and it had an amazing positive effect. The old people started doing stuff again and some through away their walking stick etc. If anyone wants the torrent pm me.

  It just doesn't make sense to take pills to give you good genes.


I was thinking the same thing. But then I'm feeling to lazy to read the article and will admit I don't know THAT much about the topic.

But... if we can make pills that altar your genes now... shouldn't we be starting to find cures for MANY things soon?

I bet it would make you a stronger and more alert old person too. Being a shriveled, deaf prune in a wheelchair with a respirator is not worth being 100.

So if a person is over a hundred and takes one of those pills, will she lives until 150 or will she die immediately 'cose she was already over the limit????  :innocent: :innocent: :innocent: :innocent:

No, the pills don't alter your genes. They replicate the effects of the genes of potential centenarians.
