The Ancients Go Mainstream

from the going-to-live-forever dept

Lifespans have always been a fascinating topic to discuss on those long nights in with friends. How long can we live? Well, the longest confirmed living person died at the ripe old age of 122 years (and get this, their have been reports that people have lived even longer). A lot of this is being attributed to increases in the general quality of life in industrial nations and the trend seems to be leading to a continually increasing lifespan in these nations. It’s funny how sci-fi gradually becomes a reality.
