a tale of three men. Yes, I’m one, my father is another, and my friend is the third. For those who survive long enough, I guess retirement is more or less a mandatory sentence, but how we handle it is not.
What constitutes a “normal life” anyway? Am I starting to fall into a “normal life”, or is any life with me far from normal as I expect it is.
I started thinking about these types of immortality and couldn’t help but to consider the some of the lives these immortals lived and compare them with retirees.
It’s not easy applying for jobs that should be reserved for people just launching their career when you’ve already had a long and prestigious one behind you. Unfortunately, with retirement savings on the decline, retirement age increasing, social security cuts, and increasing financial burden on the elderly such as for medical insurance, more and more older Americans find themselves being forced into this position.
