>>> how long would you want to live. as scientists work on extending their lives well into the second century. they asked more than 2,000 adults if they liked that idea. most people would want to live to 120. it was a different story when they were asked about themselves. more than half, 56% said no thanks. living to anywhere from 79 to 100 would be just fine with them.
