Little-known downsides of immortality:

  • Tearing your favourite article of clothing and discovering that it’s
    irreplaceable because the technique of its manufacture has been lost

  • Realising you’ve thought of the perfect comeback to someone who’s been dead for three hundred years
  • Not being able to eat your favourite dish anymore because the source of some critical ingredient has gone extinct
  • Having strong opinions about sports that are no longer played

  • Getting a song from the 13th Century stuck in your head and being unable to get it out because you don’t remember how it ends and you’re the only person on Earth who knows it
  • Having that perfect pun you’ve been waiting forever for a chance to use stop working due to linguistic drift
