    You have asked a question that really has no answer. It's all left up to Fate.

    The 60 billion dollar question. I have absolutely no interest in being the worlds oldest living women, or spending the last of my days drooling in a nursing home, so I am hoping that whatever finally gets me is swift and fatal.
    I'm a greater believer in luck, and I find the harder I work the more I have of itĒ

    Unfortunately those of us that have good genes will live long and die a slow and agonizing death. Sometimes i feel those that die of a massive heart attack are blessed.

    A good question to ponder ... I know one thing I hope I'm fortunate to die before I'm wearing Depends, having only liquid meals, confined to a chair, drooling all over myself, and no ability to remember my name.

    Such a question does make you pause and wonder "what can I do now to improve the quality of my life for whatever number of years I might have left".

    Also a great question to make one ask - when I die then what ... what happens ... do I want to go where I'm going to?

    Good question

    When I was little, coming from a family that believed we went on to another life after we died I figured life was like school! My brother died at birth and when people asked me my thoughts I figured he got straight As and did a lot of good in the last life, and got to skip a grade! Guess I got straight Fs and didn't do much good, Cause I'm still here! On detention!
    I know it's here, just need a bigger coil!

    I think I know what my last words will be....
    "Hold my beer and watch this!"

    I agree I hope a shark takes me in the surf no nursing home no life support

    I am in my declining years, where none of them are what I consider to be good. I guess they are marginally better than the alternative, but when the time comes, I'll be ready.

    Hi; Me, In my Family most of the guys are dead by 65. I am 59 +. Doing the fast math that leaves me a Good 6 years left. I plan to dig every dang one of them. I hope the day I die is the day they have to pry a metal detector from my cold, clammy hands.!!! I mean that literally. In the meantime I have 49 YEARS of SOLID detecting IN Field under my belt. I want to pass the 50 year Mark this November 17th. Then I will be happy no matter what comes my way. PEACE:RONB.

    My chosen way to go. If I know I'm gonna die any day now I'd like to take my detector, a whole bottle of Percocets and a bottle of James Jameson Whiskey. Go up to the top of Dorchester Heights where GW drove the British from Boston, dig the grounds, then go up to the top of the Monument 60' up with a GREAT 360 Degree View of Boston and let it RIP ok. PEACE:RONB

    Enjoy it - the history would be a blast to study.
    It was by choice, but only for a couple years.

    Hmm, that's a good question. I've been given last rites twice, broken just about every bone, some more then once, some more then once at the same time.
    Had a massive heart attack in 2013, and I'm still here. I thank the big guy every morning for letting me see another day. Figure he's got something for me to do, but yet hasn't decided what it is, so he keeps on giving me Mulligans when I manage to nearly do myself in.

    It's either that, or what's left is so beat up and used up he's got no use for it so he let's me hang around.

    Either way I'm good for now at least.

    In not old, but I'm not a kid either. This question makes me think of past regrets and future hopes. I'm hoping for as many years as I can get. It's very sad though knowing my son will never experience the freedoms I have in our country in the future.
