And why is that? Nothing about immortality is expensive.

What makes you think it wouldn't be expensive? Medical care is very expensive.

Firstly not outside of murica it isn't.

Second the way immortality could be obtained is rather easy. In fact "curing" aging isn't the hardest part, it's dealing with the accumulation of genetic damage. Which we happen to be working towards right now.

It's exactly as expensive outside America as it is in America. You just pay different people.

literally google the actual cost for different procedures. not whether the individual pays more on not but what procedures cost period. we are more expensive than practically all developed countries. people go overseas to have surgery all the time. its significantly cheaper to pay out of pocket there

The cost varies widely across America alone. You can pay 4 times as much for a surgery in one state or even city as you do in another. But that's entirely the provider marking up prices. The actual physical cost of the parts and things used in the surgery is no different. A hospital in Rhode Island would spend exactly the same amount on a fake hip from the same manufacturer as a hospital in Texas (minus variance in shipping costs due to distance). The difference occurs post-procedure when the bill is tallied. The only reason it's "more expensive" in the US is because providers are allowed to gouge, but the fact remains that the procedure is exactly as expensive. Not the BS consulting fees, thousand dollar Tylenol, and other shit that anybody that isn't an idiot would immediately dispute. The procedure itself.

This, lol. If you say any differently that means your doctors and nurses don't get enough schooling or aren't paid well enough to give a damn.

except if you look at quality and cost in plenty of other countries youd find yourself to be dead wrong.. people leave the states all the time to have medical procedures done dude. literally just google it. doctors get paid the same, just hospitals and surgical centers don't horde profits.

i for one wouldn't want to be immortal.

Well it's not really immortality, you just won't die of old age. But it's hardly mandatory xD

PC duster is usually deliberately poisoned to prevent this.
I guess they never figured somebody would be stupid enough to huff an air horn.
