Absolutely Not!!! Everybody has their day, the world is too crowded now, let the young enjoy THEIR time. Being old sucks!!!

Jack

I would only want to live to 100 if, over the next 57 years, the Mets can win one more World Series!!

Susan

Yes I would like to live to be 100. I like life and enjoy everything life has to offer

Keisha Kay

I'd totally want to live to be a century old! Who wouldn't? I'd be able to witness and experience the world changing around me, my family growing and changing as well. Life expectancy now is too short to really enjoy the fruits of life :)

My family & I recently celebrated my paternal grandfather's 100 years. His official birthday is Dec.18,2011,imagine what those eyes have seen and what those hands have done. We all love him so.

Sure, why not? As long as I am physically and mentally able to care for myself. If I ever get to the point I have to depend on someone else to care for me I just want to go in my sleep peacefully.

I have also read "Healthy at 100" by John Robbins I would highly recommend to all your TV listeners! It has changed my life!!! God Bless You all!!! Live Laugh Love 2011-Joshua

With what the World looks like today I would say No .
I'm sure no one protesting on Wall Street wants to live in this world and struggle to survive until they are 100. Until society can learn to love and tolerate the people around them more and the 'leaders' of our time focus on truly taking care of everyone I say living to 100 is not worth it.

Otherwise, I think everyone would desire to live past 200.

Blair  Cummings

Absolutely not! Those additional years are added to the wrong end of the life cycle.

Elizabeth

No, I don't want to live to be 100 years old.

As long as I'm not hooked up to a machine, why not?
