The FM-2030 interview with Larry King was conducted in 01989.
“If you are around the year 2010 then there is a very good chance that you would be around in the year 2030. If you are around in the year 2030 then there is an excellent chance that you can coast to immortality.”
FM-2030 didn’t make it into the 21st century alive; he died on 8 July 02000 (three months shy of turning 70).
Larry King asked FM-2030 what he didn’t like about what he saw in the future: “It’s not happening fast enough.”
The future wasn’t happening fast enough of FM-2030 in 01989 and he died from pancreatic cancer eleven years later in 02000.
My parents were alive in 02010 (they’re still alive on the day that I’m writing this… 24 November 02012).
With respect to living to 02030, it’s possible the future is happening fast enough for me, but my parents may be too old. My mom and dad are 85 and 83 years of age, respectively, in 02012; they will be 103 and 101, respectively, in 02030. I’ll be 73 in 02030.
