    This headline scared me today... After quiting smoking, only having one drink on special occasions, taking lots of walks, and eating healthily for my pregnancy... I find out I may actually live longer if I do this after the baby is born...

    Scary thing is... I think living 80 years is long enough... think I'd jump off the balcony if I knew I had to do another 14... :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl: Think I'll go back to eating cr*p and drinking... :)

    Am I the only one who thinks living forever is a bad thing?

    i thought this was gonna be spam when i saw the title :lol:

    but then again it's squiglet...... so it is spam 8) 8) 8)


    i wouldnt want to live forever.

    when i was a kid i used to think that everybody lived til they were 100 no matter what :lol: i think i was about 4 and i used to think... at least i've got 96 years left lmao
    i used to worry about my mum dying too, so would work out how many years she had left :rotfl:

    I know its vain but there wont be a wrinkle cream able enough to cope with a 90 year old skin!!!

    I think if you still have all your facultys and are mobile, then living longer would be fantastic, seeing all your children grow and their families, oooh very nice :D

    I'm still eating cr*p though :D
