Depends on what you mean by immortal. It would be nice to never age passed whatever the prime of my life would be and to never get sick and heal insanely fast, but I think it would get lonely. I mean, watching all the people you love and care about die around you would be a traumatizing experience, on top of that it would be really hard to explain to your son why he looks 80 and you look 23. However, it would be nice to see how human history plays out and have all the time in the world to try new things and learn about new concepts (aka student for life). Plus, if immortality means I get to help and contribute that much more to humanity, I'm all for it.

I would love to be immortal. It would take a lot of stress away from life, constantly thinking about dying sucks.

Immortality sounds mighty nice, so long as I could suspend aging as well. I don't really mind outliving my loved ones, and I'm pretty sure I could find ways to entertain myself through eternity.

No way, I have no desire to see what future generations will do to the Earth. Soon enough I'd probably be the last human on Earth and that would be, for lack of a better word, boring.

The thought of being Immortal would rid me of all my anxieties, but as time goes on I would see all me relatives, friends and the world as I know it melt and drip through my fingers; I would rather just die of old age then see that happen.

No. Not at all. Anyone ever read Tuck Everlasting? It's a good example to why I wouldn't want to be immortal.

Immortal? Absolutely not! Honestly, to what end? To watch everyone and everything you love eventually decay and fail? I cannot imagine a surer route to insanity and self-loathing. . .

it would depend. would it just me be? or would others be immortal too? and if others, how many others? would there still be births if there were many immortals? and also look at every immortal society in any book you read, years turn into decades, decades into centuries and so on.. would this wear on your humanity? would it blunt your emotions?
There are times when I worry what will happen if i pass, will my children be ok without me, who will protect them as if they were me? those are times when I'd possibly wish to be immortal. but then I take everything else into account. any way you look at it, immortality would be a double edged sword.

It's cool to witness and be part of future generations, but then it'd be tiresome. Eventually I'd get bored so no, I wouldn't want to be immortal.

I don't want to be immortal because I accept that I will die one day and I can't change that even if I wanted to. It would be nice to live long enough to see mankind evolve out of this era of general stupidity that exists in countries like my country, but it's not my purpose.

Has anyone here seen Randall Savage from DC Universe? Yeah, that's what immortality is like.

Being immortal is the worst thing that could ever happen to a human being.
