How to be immortal (let's face it no one really wants to die)?

1) Have children/make history/work of art/invention - well, your DNA/meme survives but you still die.

2) Religion - empty promises...

3) Cryonic suspension - the odds aren't good but better than dying.

4) Surviving until the singularity (if it occurs within your lifespan).

Let's hope beyond hell the singularity will happen soon or at least the biotechnology revolution - which should extend human lifespans considerably. Nanotechnology will be the next step then AI leading to the singularity - giving us the technology to live indefinitely.

Good thing we're not alive 200 years ago otherwise you only have option 1 & 2, which aren't really options at all.
