    However, with Immortality comes a curse. Such as having to drink blood to live.

    These are the questions that haunt me.

    If I could be like the vampires in Twilight, young, beautiful, and rich? Fuck yes.

    But if it was like the vampires in Salem's Lot, I'd have to go with no.

    Yes, it would be ideal to be immortal and hot. But, would you take it at this point in your life?

    I'll say no. Shit gets boring after a while. Plus you have to watch everyone you care about get old and die over and over.

    Technically we are all immortal thanks to the fact that there is life after death. Just depends on where you'll experience it.

    I'll take life in Heaven over being on Earth forever.

    Fact? How is it a fact? There is absolutely zero point zero proof of this.

    I do agree that getting a taste at life only to be left rotting in the ground at the end is not an appealing thought.

    And how do you know this? Because they tell you about it. Because they didn't fucking die.

    Don't worry about how I know. Just make a thread about me being correct when we meet again at the message board in the sky.
