The body, but I hope I never live to be 90

the body

Body, 30 year olds aren't all that smart anyway

definitely body, my mums mind is 75 years old and doing fine. the mind of many 90 year olds may be better than many 30 year olds

I don't think I'd want to risk the chance of Alzheimers. It's been shown to run in my family.

I'd much rather have a weak body and a strong, lucid mind, than a strong body and a weak mind.

^ pretty much what I was thinking. What good is a body if you don't have the brain power to use it the way you want to. But at the same time you wouldn't need viagra.

I would want to maintain the 30 year old body of any woman who chances my way.

Nice age statistics again with this one: under 30 it's 50/50, above it's 75% who want to keep the body. And so do I. The mind is still very much evolving after 30; you learn a new bit every day
And what is worse than seeing the decay of your body with a clear mind?

I think people would get a bit suspicious when you still look 30 at 90...?

i think that it is kind of funny how the majority of men voted to keep their bodies and more of the female votes were for mind...hmmmm interesting!

i would chose the mind, but it would be awful to be stuck in a wheelchair perfectly capable of thought but not able to say or do anything. of course, whats the point of having a nice body at 90? lol think of that, a 30 yr old talking like an old granny...niiiice...

I want to keep my mind.
16 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Wednesday 6/22/05 - 6:39:12 PM EST (GMT-5)
I'd rather have my mind than risk getting Alzheimers. I can't imagine not knowing who I am.
16 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Wednesday 6/22/05 - 6:49:42 PM EST (GMT-5)
I'd want my mind, my grandpa is has Alzheimers and so far it isn't too bad, but it's going to get a lot worse. It's really sad and I would hate to wake up one day and not know who I am or be able to recgonize my loved ones.

I would prefer the mind, I have a terrible memmory now,so by the time Im 90 Its scary to think what I would be like. Plus I wouldnt want the body because its not as if I could show it off any way, Imagine a 90 year old women wearing a denim skirt, not nice!!!
16 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Friday 7/15/05 - 7:58:51 PM EST (GMT-5)
if i was 90 i would want the mind of a 90 year old. so many memories and knowledge and experiance. unless i waz crazy or had alzheimers then i would want the mind of a 30 year old.
16 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Monday 7/18/05 - 12:40:47 AM EST (GMT-5)
The mind most definitely.

You would have the body of a 30 year old, not a 90 year old

The mind I guess. I expect everyone to wrinkle... but the upsetting thing is seeing my extremely intelligent parents begin to lose their memories. I'd go for always remaining intelligent... because who wants to grope an 80 year old... no matter how sexy!
16 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Saturday 7/23/05 - 5:51:39 PM EST (GMT-5)
The body...I hope to be wise by then
16 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Sunday 7/31/05 - 9:51:01 PM EST (GMT-5)
I'd want the mind. I don't want to end up being one of those senile old men people lock in a home where the nurses tell him that of course he was abducted by aliens just to avoid continuing any sort of conversation with the crazy bastard...
16 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Sunday 7/31/05 - 9:52:19 PM EST (GMT-5)
Definitely the body. I'd hope to learn something more in 60 years...

And be eternally hot.

The mind of course, I don't want to go senile!
You got that question from the show Newly Weds right?
