Hell yeah, I'm going to become immortal so I can have the most posts on this board. I wonder what title you get above your avatar when you make your 1,000,000,000th post. Probably "Die already you bastard". Haha suckas.

Funny how all the immortality buffs predict that immortality will arrive just around the time they will start to need it. Kurzweil, 56, figures it will arrive in 20 years. That guy from england in his forties, figures it will take 30.

I'm pretty certain, with all these predictions, it will definitely be here in 40 years. Unfortunately, it's a toss up whether I'm going to be one of those incredibly wealthy people who own everything at that point, or one of the rest - incredibly poor and owning nothing.

Actually, it's not a toss up, but I'd like to think it is, just like Ray Kurzweil would like to think he's going to live forever. Personally, I think he's a better technology salesman than an actual inventor.

The best line:
Improvements to our genetic coding will be downloaded via the Internet.

I liked this one:
"I'm not calling Ray a quack, but I am calling his message about immortality in line with the claims of other quacks that are out there," said Thomas Perls
and he might be a quack but when I was nerdy enough to care about AI he and marvin minsky were pretty bad ass in my eyes.

people who think man is destined to conquer nature are fuckwads. and they're also wrong. and we're all going to die someday.
