I actually think the technology already exists to some degree to make people live longer but I'm not sure the world is ready for it. Also, I think the so called 'health industry' prefers people getting all kinds of illnesses once they get into their 60's/70's because it makes them big money. There are a lot of people who would stand to lose a lot of money if science suddenly wiped out most illnesses such as heart disease and cancer as well as the socioeconomic problems if people suddenly started living into their 100's commonly. The retirement/ss age would need to get pressed back and the overall population would start to slowly skyrocket.

Kudos for being the only one to notice how aging itself will probably remain more expensive than anti-aging therapies. Certainly there will be many socioeconomic problems, but they will be dwarfed by the opportunities we'll get from these technologies, and certainly no problem which may come about from the elimination of age related diseases and disabilities will be worse than the problem we have today.

There will probably be no retirement, but these things are impossible to predict, unless we know how all the other technologies will develop. Perhaps, in 40-50 years robots will be able to perform 95% of human jobs, and everyone will have basic income, and having a job will be a luxury reserved for those people who really love to work, and are really good at what they do.

If we keep on reproducing at the same rate the population will sky rocket, but I don't think that will be the case, in fact I think anti-aging technologies will help us defeat overpopulation. The problem with reducing the birth rate today is that no one will be able to take care of us when we get older and dependable, but as long as we remain as vital as young people that will not be a problem anymore. Second problem is that forcing humans not to breed as much as they want to is intrusion upon their rights, and that would be a cause for riots, but if governments allow people to have free access to anti aging technologies (which would be economically and morally the right thing to do) in exchange for controlled breeding rate, overpopulation would be solved.

You're trippin' if you think I'mma read your thread now. After personally attack me by making me lag?

I do not understand.

What is Mike's best feat?

Nothing on that scale.

Mike would use his prep day to plan his escape, and to disappear.

I do not find overly important how many terrorist movements consist of muslim members, what I do find important is the number of terrorist organisation which find motivation and justification for their actions in holy scriptures of Islam.

The latter is a valid reason for criticising Islam.

@saint_of_origin: He threw a guy to the moon, has stomped on Thor multiple times etc

throwing someone to the moon is impossible to calculate how much strength it would need so we can't use that.

The only Hulk who stomped Thor multiple times is Mindless.

It's actually quite easy to calculate.

If you know exactly how many meters it is to moon sure but 99.9% won't know and shouldn't trust wikis.

Yeah, I know how far the moon is, but that's not really that important. You just need to throw an object so fast it reaches an escape velocity, and once the object frees itself from a gravitational pull of the Earth, it will keep on flying towards the moon .

Also throwing something on the moon is more of a speed feat, than a strength feat, but you need a good deal of both to throw Fin Fang Foom on the moon.

I would guess the series will end when Goku defeats someone who's going to destroy the multiverse.

I was thinking, if Travis wins this fight he should get a title shot, if he loses Stipe should get a title shot against Cain or Werdum.
