With Prince dead and Bowie, Lemmy, Emerson, and Weiland's passing seem like yesterday would you care if our human biologies were a bit "tougher"? Not necessarily to the point of being immortal but just more resistant or more adaptable to diseases, environmental factors, drugs, alcohol, aging process, etc.

Life expectancy will be significantly higher, I'm thinking up to 100-120 years lol. Athletes' prime years will possibly be 20-50
Senior citizenship is at 90
Rolling Stones still doing world tours up to 80 years old

if taken advantage of everybody would be real smart

We need the change of generations to move forward as a society. Imagine if every segregationist from the 1950s was still alive today.

It's logical that a greater amount of famous people are going to die from now on. Right now all the people that have started to become famous since the 60s-70s onwards can die. There are more famous people and easier ways for their death to instantly be "news" all over the world.

If you were alive in the 60s, how many famous people from the 10s would make headlines all over the world if they had passed away? Right now, how many famous people from the 60s would make headlines all over the world if they pass away?
What about the difference between the 70s and 30s, and today and the 70s? 80s->50s and today -> 80s?
