    Imagine this: you are immortal. You don't get to choose it and there's no way for you to "die" (like stopping thinking completely and turning into a vegetable for the rest of time or wiping your memories out, effectively turning you into another person or sleeping for a time longer than a thousand Earth years with at least a hundred years in between two long sleep cycles where you can't sleep longer than 8 hours an Earth day). You also get a cheat in the form of having infinite memory (as you forgetting things due to the limited capacity of a human brain would be boring) and you don't age and you can't get permanently ill or injured no matter how severe the illness or injury is.
    Other than that, you are on Earth and everything else is also the same as before. Nobody else is immortal or can become immortal. Time is infinite (the Universe never dies and dead Galaxies get replaced, though it goes against the current scientific theory) there are no other Universes.
    It's not a thread about how terrible being immortal would be, so leave out such answers please.
    Now, what would you do?

    Start researching how to get off this rock no dimension cause sooner or later the sun will explode or worst a black hole.Even if the universe is eternal, the sun won't.Even if the sun won't, staying on Earth would be boring.

    But in the meantime , the side quest would be ensure ones safety cause once they found about immortality they will kidnap said immortal. In other words make money and influence. which also contirbute to the main goal.

    Money making involve learn professional photography or video and record events. Stockpile on collector items, coins, money bill, etc. Have investment account that accumulate interest over time . Buy gold and silver and valuable metals. Wait till they give maximum profit.

    Invest in real estate. Make sure property is stable and not in danger due to tectonic shift or something.

    Nothing, that sounds like the best condition to enjoy life, read and watch as much as I want unless the universe ends then that would be bad, well, guess it will be also a chance to see if black holes can actually lead to other worlds or not XD

    I'm just gonna chill and do everything I like. I can go to space too and enjoy some time up there or go in the deepest depths of the oceans. Read infinite amount of manga and books, and just live a happy life. I for one, don't care if everyone around me dies one by one. That's just life for them. Just imagine how fun it would be living through all the periods of history and being invincible to death.

    The only issue is that you have to hide your ability or you'll get abducted by the government.

    Considering my life is just hobbies and dailies, it would be remain like that. Hobbies could come and go so it's only a matter of what would be my current interest.

    Should I be a magician who performs death defying acts? Or Should I lay low for the rest of my life? Fk. Won't that be forever?

    I should earn lots of money. Robbing banks? No, I shouldn't be a criminal right off the bat. I should use my powers to my benefit in a non-criminal way. Army? Nah. UFC champion baby. Wait, can I even gain muscles on this body? Or will I forever be a couch potato?

    Will I feel pain? If one of my organs was removed suppose a kidney, will a new kidney be automatically formed in its place? Do I have an unlimited blood supply? Can I donate them? Where can I find a black market for that?

    Even if humanity goes extinct, there can be still AI. (Presuming humanity goes extinct in the far far future) Also can enjoy the stuff written long ago by reading it again, which I love. I'll just chill on Earth you know? Run along empty plains of grass, eat when I want, sleep when I want, etc etc. And I would have preserved a lot of stuff. Plus with me being that old, I'll have an abundance of knowledge to cook what I want or wtv.

    I will learn to cook and then shift to the countryside and enjoy daily life in some village till humanity go extinct. After humanity goes extinct, it would be quite interesting to wander the ruins of old cities. A new civilization will start after a few million years (if the earth is not destroyed). It would be awesome to see a civilization develop from scratch. After few thousand years that civilization should be as advance as presently and eventually go extinct again. This cycle will repeat for few times until the earth is destroyed, After the earth is destroyed, I will wander space. Since I have an immortal body, I don't need to worry about radiation. I can freely wander space with just a push of rock since space does not have fiction I can move infinitely by just throwing rocks. With an immortal body, I can even go inside the black hole :) Space is big, after a few billion years I will probably find another planet with life.

    Interesting question.
    I guess the toughest part is keeping me entertained. I guess I would pull what all immortals do. Explore new things food, trades and women. Just to name a few. Start researching subjects that interest me. For instance maybe learn every martial arts out there and maybe figure out Ki or chi. Maybe figure out real magic. Maybe take up a scientific pursuit like anti gravity. But more than likely I’ll out live everyone and everything. Than start to go crazy and start talking to volleyballs with a face. Lol
