I doubt if the baby boomers will reach a vast age: they will be euthanased to save pension and medical costs.
(New Labour policy: Euthanasia, Euthanasia,Euthanasia.)
Lets hope that at least we'll get a big dose of morphine, rather than being abandoned to hunger or thirst.

"£20,000, index-linked at 2.5 per cent, for 4935 years would cost around 670,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000, 000,000,000,000,000,000 trillion."

I trust that you did not mean for us to take this seriously.

Probably if we can live 5.000 years, of which 3000 in boredom, suicide will not be seen as an unlawfull and amoral act anymore but as something normal. Suicides would rise leading to a decrease in the average life expectancy again. So some equilibrum may be reached in the future, other things equal of course. Anyway we would be much more free. Living much longer lives than before and if you don't like it, you can always end it.
