    I already have children and no I wouldn't want to live forever. I don't know if I could take them dying, knowing I never would.
    I like to rock n' roll all night and *part* of every day. I usually have errands... I can only rock from like 1-3.

    The idea of living forever is pretty unsettling, but the thought of utter nonexistence is even scarier (and I'm not crazy about the idea of having a child anyway), so I chose the second option.

    I chose to bring another life in to this cold world rather than live in it forever. I AM A COWARD!

    Neither.
    I cannot imagine living a life in this world for EVER, while all the people I've come to love die before me,
    I cannot imagine bringing a child into this messed up world unless I find an incredibly strong, loving and honorable partner for a tag team, which I doubt I ever will.

    There are more things for a person to desire to achieve than to live forever or to have a child.

    Live forever. Children are stupid and annoying.

    Wow I was thinking of this question earlier today.

    I want to marry and having kids it's a natural part of marriage I believe, if not I wouldn't even get married.

    But given this opportunity I believe I'll take that. I can always adopt .

    I am not particularly fond of the mortal life I have, so I doubt an immortal one would be an improvement. However, I also do not like the idea of forcing another intelligent, sentient being into this cruel world of greed and stupidity. I must decline the offer and shall die a mortal's death.

    Neither option..

    I don't actually want children & I don't actually like this world however I look at it to want to live forever.

    Have the child, and share life WITH them!

    You could very much find yourself with a seven year old who straight face tells you that you act like a child.

    Children are beautiful! And terribly messy, and slightly annoying.

    Imagine if Da Vinci had never been born? Or Jesus, or MLKJ, or Lawrence, Joan of Arc, Tchaikovsky, Gandhi, or Kwame Nkrumah? There are so many others...and many whose names remain unknown. (Many many more who were never born)

    When you silence one, you hinder them all. (Unless it's Hitler. I don't care what your struggles are. You don't have the right to hurt anyone)
