* The human brain has a finite memory storage capacity (the exact amount is unknown). It is too much to fill up in one life time, but if you were to live forever you would eventually reach a point where it couldn't store anymore and you would presumably either become inert or enter an endless loop.

* [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trigeminal_neuralgia Trigeminal Neuralgia]], a chronic pain syndrome, has been described as one of the worst things a person can experience. Attacks from this condition last from a few seconds to a few minutes and have been likened to ''being struck in in the face by lightning.'' Said attacks can occur from the most mundane physical contact. Sadly, about 27% of sufferers are DrivenToSuicide, which is also why it's been called the Suicide Disease.

* [[http://www.webmd.com/brain/news/20100203/vegetative-patients-talk-with-brain This experiment involving MRIs]] implies that people in persisted vegetative states may be completely aware of their surroundings, even going so far as to answer complicated questions. What's worse, the BBC broadcast talking about this implied the moral and legal obligations of such a claim, that someone stuck in this state and capable of asking for it would not be legally allowed assisted suicide.

* The [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boltzmann_brain Boltzmann brain]], an hypothetical self-aware entity that would appear because of quantum fluctuations out of nothingness[[note]]It would, however, take a ''[[TimeAbyss very]] [[DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment very]], [[UpToEleven very]]'' long time to happen... unless our Universe [[ApocalypseHow/ClassX4 self-destructed]] before one appeared because of a quantum vacuum collapse/Big Rip/whatever[[/note]]. On its basic formulation, the thing(s) would appear with false memories of it/them living a life as ours instead of the truth (alone and in the middle of the most absolute nowhere). However, nothing impedes a brain would appear without those fake memories and discovered it's alone in the cold, absolute darkness, and of course totally unable to do something about it -including, of course, [[ICannotSelfTerminate to be unable to kill itself]]-.

* According to a thought experiment called [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quantum_suicide_and_immortality Quantum suicide]], it's impossible to die for every individual observer (for everyone else you would still be dead), no matter how small odds of survival are. If this were to be the case, then, depending on what counts as "survival", it could mean that either everyone in the Universe is destined to spend eternity in coma or this. That said, the "quantum suicide" and it's predecessor, Schrodinger's Cat, [[NightmareRetardant were meant as thought experiments, rather than something that could actually happen]] i.e IF cats and people worked the same way as sub atomic particles that is what would happen. Fortunately, they don't.

* [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fibrodysplasia_ossificans_progressiva Fibrodysplasia ossificans progressiva (FOP)]] is a horrible, horrible genetic disease where, if your muscles are damaged in any way at all, your body decides to replace the damaged muscle - not with more muscle, but with ''bone''. By the time you're thirty, most, if not all of your joints have been locked into place by newly-grown bones and you die of starvation/suffocation because you can't move your jaw or ribs. And trying to remove the bone growths with surgery only results in the body "healing" the surgical cuts with ''even more bone.''
