If there's a topic like this, please close the thread.

I'm not talking about weak immortals who live forever but have a weakness that can kill them, I'm talking about immortals who can be cut in a billion pieces and still survive. If you had the power of immortality, what would you do?

I for one would try to conquer the world.

If I could never die, I'd be incredibly sad.

But, if it happened, I'd spend my entire life doing good for my fellow man. Also, learning as much as humanly possible.

With your type of immortality that you are talking about and ignoring the probable posts of people saying that governments and organizations would exploit your power by like locking you in a room and throwing away the key or throwing you into a warzone to get something done so they could spare having to pay and lose the lives of hundreds to thousands of soldiers...


I would probably just watch the world go by and learn. I'd have all the time in the world to learn as much as I could, also eventually hopefully humans would learn space travel and living on other planets and such, so I would want to get involved in that type of stuff.

I would love to be immortal only so I can really turn my life around, by making my dreams possible. Don't wanna die knowing I never accomplish all the things I wanted to.

I would be considered the worst villain ever as I took over everything and killed or destroyed anything that didn't fit in with my plan. I would be doing it for the good of all who are left though....

Agreed...I'd say the ideal type of immortality is to not have the need for food nor water but still can indulge yourself with your sense of taste intact...immune to any illnesses and possibility of any sort of death but one...you know, that option to end your life of solitude and boredom...probably the biggest concern of people when they're immortal is secrecy...trying to hide the fact that you're immortal to prevent many people from taking advantage of you and your gift/curse in any means intolerable.

Well, there's also the fact of steady flow of income...unless you want to live a little primitive...if you can find a way for that...that'd be awesome...move from one place to another? That's an option...but that's also taking a risk of revealing yourself.

Each country would see you as an opportunity to make their own super soldiers. They'll torture you. Dissect you, without general anesthesia, in order to learn and replicate your immortality to their so called super soldiers. From there, they are the ones that would conquer the world-- thanks to you.

In my case, I got to have my adamantum claws on me, son.
I'll be like Weapon X.

Then, do the day of future past and harass professor X.

On the one hand, that sounds like a terrible curse. Every time I get stuck in traffic I think about how absolutely shitty the world is and realize that there is nothing I can do about it. Having to live through that crap FOREVER seems like a terrible fate.

On the other hand, with infinite time, one could do whatever one pleased. There would never be a need to rush. At 31, I am starting to worry about saving for retirement, but am not happy with my current career. I am lamenting having to choose between going to grad school, moving for a risky job proposal, or staying where I am in a low-stress (but low pay) job. Every time I get stuck in traffic, I feel my life being risked by bad drivers and wasted by inconsiderate asshats who refuse to hit the gas pedal. If I were immortal, I could try the risky job and if I went broke, I would have as many years as necessary to recoup the losses. I could go to school. Hell, I could go to EVERY school. Traffic would not be shaving minutes off of my life. With immortality, there is a good chance that life could be a lot more pleasant.

Personally I don't know if I would actually want immortality. But, if I were immortal, I would take the Highlander (series) method of things - Invest well, move wherever I pleased, work in whatever field I pleased, buy a houseboat in France for a few decades, have a studio in New York for some years, save all my junk and sell it as "antique" every 200 years or so (most profitable garage sale ever), spend a few decades in other countries, whatever. If you put a few thousand dollars in Pittsburgh Steel in the 1920's, you'd have billions today. Imagine how much wealth one could acquire. I could drop money into some stocks, buy land in a developing country, and then just screw around for a century or two and I could basically run the world.

I wish I could have the invincible kind of immortality, not the kind where you don't stay dead. The kind where conceivably nothing can physically harm me. Throw a nuke at me, try to drown me, nerve gas, and not a scratch while I breathe healthy like nothing. That way I'll have much less to worry about as I get captured by the government or extremely disgusting sadists.

Boredom and emotional pain will be one of my only few enemies though, but I'll take that over being mutilated over and over again,
