    I think living to be 120 is notable enough.

      Actually not, it says nothing notable so that would mean everyone would be living past 120 years so you picked the wrong choice my friends.

      Xerun by your logic we would then be increasing everyone's life span by an average of 40 years. Right choice, I think.

      Changing the world is way better than living a long life. Plus, when you live a long life, your friends might have died a long time ago.

    I have a deep set, very rational fear of being totally useless. Not because I'd be easily forgotten, but because... I'd have wasted resources. And space. And oxygen and time and opportunities and emotions, and have contributed nothing but environmental suffering.

    It says live to be 50, but doesn't necessarily say you die afterwards. If anything it more guarantees you'll live to be atleast 50. I love loopholes.
