    I'll be 126 if I get to celebrate new years eve 2099. I suppose it's possible though highly unlikely. Do you think you'll be alive then?

    Only if they can put my head in a jar like they do on Futurama that would suck though. Or if I'm frozen and re animated like Walt Disney hopes for, that would be kinda cool. I'd be 120+ years old though. I don't know if I'm up for that. My g-grandma got to be 103 and just existing day to day was difficult for her at that age.

    No chance, we were there in 1999 man!!! I hope someone picks this thread up in one of those internet traulers that caches the internet at a point in time for prosperity.

    Are you kidding. I'm hoping for a few more quality years, not a century. If fact I might not last as long as this thread.

    LOL, jst2laws, well although I've only met you briefly, I know you'll get the most out of those years, however long they last.

    possibly. 120 might be reachable for me (1979 baby here). I'm Polish you know, and we're a hardy bunch.

    Reached #1 07-12-69 on the Billboard Charts
    Released the year I was baptized and played every night on the way home from the district assembly.

    In the year 2525
    If man is still alive
    If woman can survive
    They may find........

    In the year 3535
    Ain't gonna need to tell the truth, tell no lies
    Everything you think, do, or say
    Is in the pill you took today

    In the year 4545
    Ain't gonna need your teeth, won't need your eyes
    You won't find a thing to chew
    Nobody's gonna look at you

    In the year 5555
    Your arms are hanging limp at your sides
    Your legs got nothing to do
    Some machine, doing that for you

    In the year 6565
    Ain't gonna need no husband, won't need no wife
    You'll pick your son, pick your daughter too
    From the bottom of a long glass tube

    In the year 7510
    If God's a comin' he ought to make it by then
    Maybe he'll look around himself and say
    ``Guess it's time for the Judgement day''

    In the year 8510
    God's gonna shake his mighty head
    He'll either say ``I'm pleased where man has been''
    Or tear it down and start again

    In the year 9595
    I'm kinda wondering if man's gonna be alive
    He's taken everything this old earth can give
    And he ain't put back nothing...

    Now it's been 10,000 years
    Man has cried a billion tears
    For what he never knew
    Now man's reign is through
    But through the eternal night
    The twinkling of starlight
    So very far away
    Maybe it's only yesterday...

    In the year 2525
    If man is still alive
    If woman can survive
    They may find.......

    If I do, I'll be sitting at a crusty old 121. Ah! a new goal for me! I wonder how much drinking my liver will be able to take by then. Hopefully I'm not on any pills that have a deadly effect when mixed with alcohol.
