RE: What if we all live to be a hundred years old?
Hmmm,
people in old movies do look older than what I would expect but I have to ask myself if that has anything to do with the way they used light.
However, I will say this. My last deployment to Afghanistan I worked at a combat hospital and I got to meet quite a few locals. They looked so rough and so much older. 25 years old looked like 40 years old.

Quite a difference between the cities and the tribals. Must be nutrition or exposure to the elements or something .

How to live to be 150:

Scientists are reporting an advance in the science of aging, and maybe even a clue how to reverse some of aging's effects. They have evidence that lifestyle changes already known to be good for you - like healthy diet, exercise, reducing stress - may prevent the chromosomes in our cells from unraveling. NPR's Richard Knox reports it's all about little caps on our chromosomes, called telomeres.

RICHARD KNOX, BYLINE: For a couple of decades now, scientists have been fascinated by telomeres. They're like the plastic tips of shoelaces. Telomeres protect the tips of chromosomes, the strings of genes in the heart of every cell that tell it what to do.

As people and other animals age, their telomeres get shorter and shorter. Dr. Dean Ornish, at the University of California-San Francisco, says some things accelerate the process.

DR. DEAN ORNISH: Smoking makes your telomeres shorter, and emotional stress is associated with shorter telomeres - and lack of exercise. And we know that shorter telomeres are associated with an increased risk of developing many chronic diseases and a shorter lifespan.

I concur. Once life stops being enjoyable, I see no point in extending it. I have an awesome exit plan too. And I mean AWESOME!

By that time we might have mandatory euthanasia at 100, or earlier if the population continues to increase. </dystopia>
