In a thread that I have long ago lost sight of, you quipped (roughly) "I plan to be immortal. So far it's working."

At the time I forgot to complement you on the quip. I've since stolen it. In a few weeks, I'll be convinced that I made it up myself.

It's a keeper.

Thanks, but I think it's too derivative to claim credit. I think the original (or the first one I came into contact with, anyway) was "I'm planning to live forever; so far, so good!" I wish I remembered the source with certainty. I'm thinking Smullyan, perhaps in "5000 B.C. And Other Philosophical Fantasies."

Guess they forgot to tell Bill Buckley.

My version is "I plan to live forever, or die trying..."
Also known, when doing rope magic, as "Cordini"

When asked if I have been a magician my whole life, I reply, "Not yet."

Lobo I think it was Carl Ballentine. At least I think he had a derivation.

I was going to put this one up. I first heard it on "Blakes 7" when the thief/coward Vila Restal comments on mortality.

"I intend to live forever, or die in attempt!"
"There's no time to lose," I heard her say.
"Catch your dreams before they slip away."
"Dying all the time, lose your dreams and you could lose your mind.

I weep for Lobowolf—he is banned!

Oh, weep for Lobowolf! though our tears

Thaw not the frost which binds so dear a head!

And thou, sad Hour, selected from all years

To mourn our loss, rouse thy obscure compeers,

And teach them thine own sorrow, say: "With me

Died Lobowolf; till the Future dares

Forget the Past, his fate and fame shall be

An echo and a light unto eternity!"

He texted me with the details. I don't know if I'm allowed to disclose those here (or risk banishment myself); PM me if you'd like.
