Would you rather die peacefully among friends at age 50, or painfully and alone at age 80? Assume that most of the last 30 years would be good ones.
What kind of stupid question is that? Who really wants to die a painful death? I choose peaceful with friends. I mean, I like my alone time and all, but waiting around just to say I lived to 80 isn't worth being miserable in that final moment. I guess that gives me roughly 20 more years. Let's make them good ones.
