    Definitely, I wouldnt be bothered too much by any of the said consequences.

    The worst would be out liveing my loved ones over and over again, then id just learn to stop makeing loved ones. Oh well.

    If ageing where taken into count I still wouldnt mind, cause to be immortal the body would eventually stop ageing at some point. Even if it meant liveing my life as a healthy 80 year old man from that point on for eternity I would still choose yes.

    And yes the possiblities of experience may not be infinite with out an "inhuman" mind, but it would take millions of years for you to reach even a possible stoping point. And hell if an "inhuman" mind didnt come with the package I still wouldnt decline. So far we have nothing to prove that theres anything after death and that if there is that it would as a fact be better than this. So whos to say doing nothing for ever isnt better than what waits after mortal death? And even if it was it will probably never be revealed to even the "immortal" mortals, and so I would be content in my ignorant bliss of my self proclaimed god status.

    One question

    How would you hide that you are immortal?

    Nah man, I just get lots of plastic surgery done. I use these anti-aging cremes and skin revitalizing body lotions. I'm a real addict on this stuff.

    And once you've grown old with some people, move away from them to avoid them noticing your immortality too much.

    Because you can't spell "Slaughter" without "Laughter"

    But if you are immortal that would mean that you do not age by definition?

    I was saying that would be my excuse if anyone questioned, hence the "Nah man" at the beginning.
    My bad on not being more specific.

    It's super cheesy and repetitive. Not a good film per se.

    It does have some interesting ideas in it, though. I'd rather have read the short story version if there ever was one.

    Yeah, I would accept the gift of immortality.

    It doesn't ensure that you don't die. Thats invincibility. Immortality just means that you won't die due to old age.

    I would definitely accept it. Preferably with the ability to not age as well. The downsides don't seem too bad to me.

    HELL NO, I WOULDN'T!!!

    The certainty of death adds an element of urgency to my life and facilitates an appreciation and respect for it within me.

    I would, however, accept having a lifespan of say, 500 to 5,000 years.
