how old do you want to live till?

so i read how the new oldest man in the world is 113 years old. my question is why the would you want to live that long? you cant see, you can barely walk, someone has to chew your food for you and wipe your too! so how old would you want to live to or until you cant do what? me personally think 85-90 is more then enough time!

British WWI veteran becomes world's oldest man

British World War One veteran Henry Allingham is the world's oldest man at 113 following the death of the previous holder of the title, Japan's Tomoji Tanabe, Guinness World Records said on Friday.

"Henry Allingham is now officially the oldest man in the world," said a spokeswoman for the organization widely recognized as the authority on record-breakers.

Tanabe, who ate mostly vegetables and believed the key to his longevity was not drinking alcohol, died on Friday aged 113 and had held the record for the oldest living male since January, 2007.

Allingham was born in London on June 6, 1896, and took the British title on January 19, 2007 aged 110 years 227 days, Guinness World Records said in a statement.

"We're pleased to see an English man take the world record -- the last time someone from England held the title was Frederick Butterfield, who died on March 9, 1974, aged 110," said Craig Glenday, Editor-in-Chief of Guinness World Records.

Allingham is one of only two surviving World War One veterans in the United Kingdom and the last surviving founder member of the Royal Air Force, according to British media.

His friend and chaperone, Dennis Goodwin, said: "It's staggering. He is philosophical. He will take it in his stride, like he does everything else."

Allingham's life has spanned three centuries and six monarchs, starting with Queen Victoria. He has five grandchildren, 12 great-grandchildren, 14 great-great grandchildren and one great-great-great grandchild.

Guinness World Records said the oldest living person is American Gertrude Baines, 115, who was born on April 6, 1894.

If I cant get by on a daily basis on my own....then its time for me to go, no matter what age I am at


I dont want to have to depend on someone else to do things for me. I would feel usless, and I dont want to live that way.

The way I see it, at that point I won't be enjoying life anymore and I will be miserable. There is no sense in keeping me alive at that point and just causing my family pain, trouble, and money.

Yep.... I want to be able to do everything that leading a normal life consists of. If someone had to sit there all day and watch me to make sure I didn't wonder off, or to change me because I was too weak, I would just be unhappy.

If I can't enjoy life anymore, then I dont want to be here.

Yeah, as long as a person's health holds out. Each person has to decide when enough is enough. Some can stand alot of unpleasantness others not so much.
For me it's not when so much as how slow.
I'm not afraid of being dead, but dying scares the out of me.
