Hmmm this is a strange thread. But I am bored so I will take a stab at it. Im stealing your answer.... but not your reasons. I think alot of people would want to live as long as possible (with the exception of those who are suicidal).
Im certainly not afraid of death. Infact, its life that poses all the challenges. dying is easy. But I want to live as long as I am allowed to. I want to learn as much as I can. I want an oppertunity to negate, in some way, the mistakes Ive made. Even if its only to help guide my children, grandchildren, great- grandchildren...ect. I want to leave a mark, to touch as many people as possible before I go out.
