    There was a time in my life I would have disagreed. That was 50 years ago. I'm thinking a little differently now.

    83 sounds like a good age.

    I'd be damned if I lived until 100 or something but my quality of life was ****ing ****ty for the last decade or two.

    You're a teenager, you can't even fathom 30 let alone 80.

    I like the sound of 90. A nice round number.

    I've seen family live that long. Do not tell me what I can and cannot fathom, such a thing is imbecilic in nature. I can fathom such things. To be correct, you should say I have yet to experience such things.

    They're stuck in a room the entire day. Their muscles have grown so weak that they cannot even walk. They cannot live alone or even with their spouse in their own house as they need a stranger to come in everyday and take care of everything. They lose their independence, their life is that of being at the mercy of those around them.

    Their fragile bodies move at a tortoise's pace and pain is experienced commonly.

    No thanks. I plan to never use drugs and stuff to keep me artificially alive, when I'm gone I'm gone. You can call me naive or whatever but I won't listen to anyone telling me otherwise.

    When I was in the first grade(this would have been 1971), I would get home from school just in time to sit with my mom and watch Star Trek with her each day on one of the local channels. Spock was my hands down favorite character. I am surprised kinda at just how saddened I am at this news. He was a big part of my youth, and a big part of my lifelong interest in science fiction.

    Today, the world lost a great man, and I lost a great friend. We return you now to the stars, Leonard. You taught us to "Live Long And Prosper," and you indeed did, friend. I shall miss you in so many, many ways.

    Oh no, so sad. Truly marking the end of an era.

    That's what I said in the other thread.

    I wonder if they will incorporate into the show because Nimoy has been a part of the show up until now.
