(X) Other|Perhaps

Only if there is also a way to reverse the anti-aging process that would allow to go painlessly after one has done everything, saw everything.

    I'd certainly take such a treatment, for the simple reason that reversing the decision at a later time is very easy indeed. Althought not completely painless, jumping (or otherwise placing yourself) in front of a heavy, fast moving object is a tried and tested method :-)

          ... assuming that is that the negative side-effects don't leave you in a condition in which you're unable to throw yourself in front of the bus -- before you reach the decision to do so.

        This is a side effect of life even without anti-ageing treatment. Even so, I'm sure I'd manage to be annoying enough to have someone help me solve that problem. Next time you see a senior citizen act in a manner that makes you consider throwing him or her in front of a train, maybe that's exacly what he or she is trying to accomplish? :-)
