    This might sound crazy...but...

    Many people believe with the current trajectory of medical advances people of our generation may not even die. New advances in medical care may push the average life expectancy over 100. So that's 70/80 years for them to find a cure for aging or even reserse it. If you think how far we've come in 70/80 years its quite plausible.

    Has anyone else considered getting their DNA stored while they're in their prime or am I just being crazy here?

    Even if something like that exist in 50 years time, you won't be able to buy it.

    What do you expect to be reincarnated in 60 or 70 years time
    Your dna never changes, so why bother storing it
    A bit of hair, or saliva and they can get it

    Also hair and saliva aren't very good for retrieving full DNA from. Blood is best. Ha now I do sound crazy!

    That ain't happening, they should work on reducing pollution and save the Earth, with global warming and all that shit increasing day by day, I don't think I would even want to live in this world after a couple hundred years or so.

    I completely agree with you that those are greater priorities. But unfortunately due to the increasing capitalistic nature of the world as a whole I can see more and more money being pumped into this type of research simply because so many people would pay anything for it.

    Who knows, maybe attitudes towards what's really important will change, hopefully.

    As a precaution I keep a copy of my DNA in every one of my cells.

    That's roughly 35 trillion backups.

    Ha I got a little confused. I thought it degrades over time but its not the actual sequence that changes its other things...

    "New research, published in PNAS, however, shows that as we grow older our DNA's susceptibility to methylation changes."

    Yay I can keep all.my blood!! :)

    Obviously this is based on zero facts and pure speculation but I imagine there would always be new skills to master and enjoy. However I guess eventually everything would feel the same, very repetitive maybe even to the point of becoming torturous. But I think I'd like to at least give it a try if its ever possible.
