Not so easy. Death can occur anytime and in any form. It is unpredictable

Death by humour, I would exclude in your case.

Kill everybody else who's older than you.

I challenge everyone that I will be the last man surviving from the 20th century. My birth year is 1994.  Will post 'Hi' in this thread on 1st Jan 2120. All the 20th century born would be wiped out by then theoretically. I will be the only one surviving.

If I choose that option all the nations police will be behind me and they will kill me.

Best option is to live upto year 2150. Then i will enter Guiness Book of World Records and my name will be immortal even after my death. 150 years is not a big deal. One year passes very fast on count of 1-2-3

I am saying seriously. As a child when anyone used to ask me what is your ambition in life? I used to say I want to be alive in year 2100. I am not kidding.

That's a funny story. When i was 4-5 years old i used to think that I will live upto year 3000. Then later i understood it is impossible so came down to 2100. The reason is simple. Living that long implies good health for a long time and good health will come by staying in good environment and being busy in work and having a balanced life. Longevity is a result of many positive factors. Luck is also required. We get to live only once so why not live as long as possible?

I kind of want to have lived in three centuries, i.e. from 1982-2100 at least (yes, not 2101 but 2100, looks good enough).

The most important factor, by far, is genetics...:old: since you're a man, you're already at a major disadvantage.

Luck is most important factor. Even if your genetics are strong, you can die anytime in accident or by major illness. Those long living people have learnt the art of survival and also have great luck. For example, the people who died by Coronavirus were unlucky

Fotima Mirzokulova, an unverified claimant from Tajikistan as the 'world's oldest woman', has died.  She was (allegedly) 126 years old.   Her specific birthdate has been presented as March 13, 1893.

There are now 50 people verified to have reached the age of 115 with Shigeyo Nakachi's birthday today.

 

EDIT: Only 3 of which were male, if you were curious.

Your birth year being 1994 already places you at a huge disadvantage. Those 5 (or 6 depending on how you count the 20th century) years that you lose by not being born in 1999 or 2000 makes it almost impossible to become the last living person from the 20th century.

Dorothy McClements, who surely must hold the record for oldest person living in the same residence their entire life, has died.  She was 110 and an unvalidated supercentenarian.
