If you're already sick of Bryson DeChambeau, you're not going to like hearing this. Bryson plans on being around for a long time. A really, REALLY long time.

Of course, we are nowhere near sick of him. This PGA Tour Content King continues to give us stuff to write about. Even on a day in which he made news for trying to get a drop because of some ants (LOL), he managed to out-do himself with something else he said.

In an interview with GQ, DeChambeau dove into the details of his workout regiment and his diet, even explaining that he's found the purest water has a pH of 9.5. It was all pretty standard Bryson stuff until you get to the last question, which somehow prompted him to give this ambitions—and random—goal.

Have you always been this curious and into the “why” behind your training and nutrition?

I’ve always been interested in life in general, growing up. I always questioned everything. I didn't have a lot of resources when I was young. I couldn't go down all these roads with these questions that I asked at an early age. But now that I've been able to have some success, I've kinda gotten deep into most of these things and only taken what has added value to me. I'm always trying to add more value to my life in general. I mean, my goal is to live to 130 or 140. I really think that's possible now with today's technology. I think somebody’s going to do it in the next 30 or 40 years. I want humans to be better. I want them to succeed. I want to say, Hey, this is all of the stuff I've experienced that helped me do my best. If it helps you, great. If it doesn't, well, let's keep working on it. Let's keep figuring stuff out. That’s my take on life.

Wait, wait, wait. One hundred and THIRTY or FORTY?! WTF?! That's longer than the sport of golf has even been around in this country! Even Gary Player thinks that's a bit much.

By the way, only one human being in history is on record as living even 120 years. That's a French woman named Jeanne Calment, who lived an astonishing 122 years and 164 days. Maybe Bryson thinks his French last name gives him a better chance at longevity.

In any event, Bryson's answer had everyone talking—and some mocking, including Justin Thomas:

Shhhh, JT. Just let the guy keep talking. It's good for business. Good luck, Bryson. We're pulling for you in this quest.
