Eternal Earthly Existence

I had mentioned this on my blog, but wanted to open up discussion here to see what you all thought.

Imagine this: people can live indefinitely. They stop physically aging at 25 and remain in control of their mental faculties (i.e. no senility). Basically: though people can die, there is no such thing as dying from “natural causes.”

My two questions are as follows: 1. How long would the average person live before they died, either by way of an accident or at the hands of somebody else? and 2. How would people live their lives differently? Would the average person’s mindset change knowing that if they died, it would be by an accident of their own or because of somebody else?

Ignore factors like overpopulation, poverty, etc. -ram

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
