Tags: age, question
Wow, how rude of me. I didn't mean that your question itself was horrible, but rather the concepts involved were horrible to think about.
I think I would revise my answer now too. Knowing when you'll die might not be so bad. So many people spend their days wondering when and how it will happen. If the 60-year age limit were the norm, it would be an accepted fact of life and would eliminate the worry. Also, as you stated, we know that we *could* live to be 100 but if we did, we'd be so feeble of brain and brawn that we couldn't really enjoy it. It depresses me now at almost 30 that it's only going to go downhill from here. My argument that "most people have this experience" doesn't make sense. As if people choose to have this physiology anyway! I don't know what I was thinking when I wrote that comment.
Plus, the former suggestion sounds like an awesome YA dystopian novel :)
