    I don't think i'll live to be over 70. Maybe if I have kids or fall in love (I doubt both but you never know), I will be afraid of dying and leaving them alone. Or I'll just want to watch them grow and be able to offer advice. I'm not afraid of dying, but I hope that I won't feel like I didn't do everything I can as a living person before I do

    Judging by family history, either 85 or 45.

    Scared? Kind of. Yeah. Scared of being scared. I get anxiety thinking that my last moments could be undignified (shitting myself mid-heart attack in a pool) or regretful ("My life was meaningless!")

    Probably mid to late 70's, I don't smoke so I at least have that going for me

    I'd guess mid/late 70's, my grandparents have all lived to late 80's and 90's but they also didn't spend their 20's doing drugs every weekend.

    I'd be okay with that sort of age, I want to see my daughter grow up and help her get set up in life, but I don't particularly want to survive being old and really frail.

    If there's technological advances in the meantime that can keep people more youthful at an advanced age, I might be more bothered about living longer.

    Not sure but I live a pretty wild life and avoid wasting time doing stuff I don't want to do, so I got little regrets.

    Even if you live a long life, the shit you enjoy now you probably can't do when you are 80.

    What I’m terrified of is never seeing my son or partner again. If I had one day to live, I’d spend it all with them... I’d want them to be the last thing I saw before the lights went out.

    And I’d hope that I’d see them again shortly.

    I don't know, maybe early 70's? I have a history of cancer on both sides of the family which I'm hoping to avoid. Yay!

    I'm slowing down already and appreciating different and simpler things. I sold a badass KX-250 dirt bike two weeks ago. My back and knees told me it's time for gentler hobbies. As a kid I couldn't imagine not having a dirt bike when I grew up.

    In the next 20-30 years. Not scared. I'm fine with everything.

    For a 41 year old male you are expected to live till 82.

    I can't say I live healthy but I seem to be in great shape so will call average 82.

    my family all dies in their 90's but I have eaten way more processed foods and drank way more beer than anybody in my entire bloodline ever did so im guessing maybe my 60's.

    Any time now unfortunately. If I make it to 70 I’ll try and make time to celebrate between naps.

    Late 50s early 60s. Whenever is fine. Had a pretty eventful life so far, and the kids are almost all grown up

    The only part of death that scares me is leaving my wife and daughter behind and missing out on her life as she grows.
    Otherwise i have no fear of death, but i do respect it.
