Nice one

Millions long for eternal life who do not know what to do with themselves on a rainy Sunday afternoon

I wonder if this is actually true. We fear death, and hope for a long life, but surely eternal life would be intolerably boring?

Dai.. You are making a common error in afective forecasting.. Told ya to get "Stumbling on Happiness". Check this out:
"People get unhappier between the ages of 20 and 45 - by the equivalent of one-third the effect of losing one's job - but happier thereafter"
