    I'd plump for immortality, if only to satisfy my curiousity as to what the future holds. Quite frankly I don't see why being immortal should automatically lead to an assumption of immorality. I don't believe the two are mutually exclusive. This may be because I view morality as a desire and will to become more intelligent (or, at least, less ignorant) and more aware of the possibilities which surround us. By becoming immortal, I would therefore be fulfilling my moral obligation. Of course, I speak as an athiest. If you bring religion into the equation then things become a lot more complicated as to what you regard your obligations to be. That's a philosophical can of worms I have no intention of opening.

    Immorality is what makes being immortal fun. ;)

    I'd choose immortality. Morals are fluid anyway, depending on who you talk to and which nation they hail from. I can live without all that. To see the future, however, is beyond price. There's no contest in my opinion.
