Bicentenarian potential

The World Future Society convened in San Francisco this past weekend. Scientists argued over the limit of aging, announcing that someday humans would reach an average lifespan of 120 to 180 years.

Would you really want to live that long? How would you support yourself? Does that mean normal folk wouldn’t hit “retirement” until 90? Or older? And who would these people be – the ones who hit 150 or 160 years of age? Do you think the disparity in health care would widen?

How would this longer life span effect the society we live in now?
