This is a bit of an update on something I'm sure a few of you have heard of, but I still figured it was worth sharing. Basically, scientists are testing a drug that would use a synthetic molecule called resveratrol, which works by stopping or slowing down the genes that cause aging. It has already been test sucessfully on worms, yeast, flies, and mice, and some of the people involved are predicting that the drug could potentially extend our lifespan to 150 years.

Sure, some serious testing will need to be done in order to ensure that this is safe for us, but if it works... well, what do you think? Would it be worth it? Me? I'm all for living twice as long as the average rate. Besides, I want to see where we go from here; singularity anyone?
