Wasn't there an anime movie like that? If I recall correctly they ended up using them as test subjects..unwilling test subjects. I'd rather much not mention my immortality if that's my fate.

I'd still help people but on my terms not theirs ya dig.

Lay in the middle of the road whenever I felt like it. Possibly try to help humanity but I'm not that helpful.

I would just do all selfish things. I wouldn't bother helping society in any way.

If I was immortal I'd still be bound be laws of the land.

In other words I couldn't just go rob a bank, because I'd be arrested. Plus imagine how bad it would be, being given two life sentences in jail. I'd rather be mortal with some crazy power.

Oh, I'd probably study and learn a lot. That way I'd be able to contribute to society in many ways.

I'd be writing books and graphic novels for the end of time, slowly building up a fanbase. At least of them will be turned into a hit anime. I shall make several social media accounts, and make a forum dedicated to my work. I'll be known as the lewd dank meme child author, and I will dominate the internet.

....Or something like that.

Now that I'm thinking about it, I should of picked "Other".

I would probably become a world traveler and learn all about other cultures and pick up a bunch of languages on the way. I really want to learn African Click, but sadly since it has virtually no practical application where I plan to live and work there is almost zero chance I would bother . But if I was immortal with all the time in the world I could totally learn!

I'm also looking into virology as a possible career path so I could go to those third-world countries and get up close and personal with normally fatal viruses like Ebola and possibly figure out some sort of vaccine, biology is also an interest of mine, specifically genetic engineering, so I would try to work with people to help create drought resistant and hardier food plants to help end world hunger.

After my stint as a saint-like figure I would probably have to fake my death and after building up a decent nest-egg of funds retire to some secluded country home to get to work on my reading list (which includes all the classics). I would probably study business and marketing and invest in stocks, all of the interest earned would be donated to charity organizations.

I would buy very large plots of land in as many different countries as I could and turn them into nature preserves, I would have to most likely fake my death again.

I would probably alternate between helping on the sidelines to being a recluse and studying with ever more creative fake deaths between stints. I would design a retrovirus just for the heck of it, but never release it, I would genetically engineer a pet for myself, perhaps one reminiscent of a wayvern, because six limbed vertebrates don't exist on Earth. I would try to breed blue roses because I've always wanted to try, but it would take more than one lifetime to accomplish, I would write books, and read them. I would watch and record history from the point of view that does not get into the history books, I would live, and then when I got tired of living I would begin a search to figure out how to die, because while the idea of being Immortal seems appealing to us short lived creatures it would get monotonous and boring. It would also be quite terrible to stay young and watch as all those around you grew old and died. It would get lonely.

So while I love the idea of living forever, I'm kind of happy we don't. Humans are not equipped with the patience to handle it.

Depending on how you define immortality, there is always Henrietta Lacks.

In terms of biological continuity, it's unlikely all of her tissue samples will be permitted to died anytime in the next few centuries.
