A million years?
While I was listening to the radio and making soup this evening, two eminent chaps were considering whether, if it were possible, one would want to live for ever. Would life eventually get boring, they wondered?
They agreed that they’d be willing to give it a go, with two provisos: that science had also managed to arrange that they didn’t get decrepit; and that they could opt out at any time, for example if after a million years they felt they’d seen it all before.
Hmm. I feel I could certainly sign up for two or three hundred, provided that all my friends and relations were still around too. And you all.
