A curse. Because you see everyone that you care for wither and die in front of your eyes.

The way things are going now in the world, a curse. Violence will only increase as the fight for resources and power heightens.

I don't think blessings or curses exist, but it would be cool I guess.

If I keep aging I would have to say a curse. Getting old is not for wimps!

A curse because I'd get tired of living after a couple hundred years.

I like earth.. and though it has problems.. I believe if people would shed their own selfishness... they would like it here.

I dont possibly see as how it could be a blessing. I would really NOT want to outlive my children or grandchildren or my grandchilrens children.

It would be a very terrible curse.

Robert Heinlein examined this idea in "Time Enough for Love" and, although his protagonist wasn't confined solely to Earth (they had developed space travel) he became incredibly bored. He had lived for lifetime after lifetime, had learned a great deal about many different disciplines, and finally concluded that there was nothing new left for him to do. He decided to kill himself because he had grown tired of living.

I think we'd all get very tired of doing the same things over and over so I'd say it's a curse, not a blessing.

Definitely a curse

Although being an eagle for millennia on end would be amazing, eventually there would be nothing left to discover, no where to soar that I had not been to before. Boredom would set in........then what?

Both I think. You see the once you love die in front of you but you could live your life to the fullest.

If I kept aging, it'd be a curse. If not, well, I wouldn't see it as either.
