I hope that if I ever hit the age he looked, I still have the same views on life he is said to have had. The picture in the article is of a guy that really loved life and just wanted to get to know people.

For those who don't know, the research that this guy's parents put into finding a cure has really helped other people with this same genetic disorder. It may also one day help each and every one us through the knowledge gained about the aging process in general.

In 2003, the Berns' scientific team identified the gene that causes progeria.

The trials could lead to a better understanding and treatment for the normal aging process, experts say.

Hunter Gathers: Good lord, son, there should be a mandatory retirement age for strippers.
Brock: Did you see I got cornered by Robin last night? I almost had to chew off my own arm to get away.
Hunter Gathers: Ohh! That poor woman has the saddest tits. Damn depressing!
Brock: They're, like, The Notebook sad.
Hunter Gathers: Her tits are like "coming home from school and finding out that your old man ran over your cat" sad.
Brock: Mournful. She has mournful tits. They're like two suicide notes stuffed in a glitter bra.
Hunter Gathers: Those things are like a little kid with progeria cracking all his ribs trying to catch a Nerf ball. Just sad. Damn it, she has gloomy tits!
Brock: It's like she put a dollar's worth of change into some old socks and then taped them to her chest.
Hunter Gathers: I want to build two little caskets and give her tits a tasteful, dignified funeral.

Damn.   Saw him onKatie Couric's show over the holidays.  Pretty upbeat kid.  Going to see if I can find that HBO doc.

Godspeed Sam...

Why did that story have a picture of Senator Mitch McConnell in it?

This kind of gives a perspective of what it feels like for long lived elves of most fantasy works to look at short lived humans.

That's what you took away from this? Maybe it's time to put down the Tolkien, Poindexter.

If this kid didn't make Eagle, he had a crap troop.  He's Eagle material.

God that's sad. RIP little dude.
 
2014-01-12 03:43:59 AM
That kid saw things you people wouldn't believe.  Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion.  He watched C-beams glitter near the Tannhauser Gates.  All these moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain.

Came to see Dick Clark; I see the thread was over in 2.

And I still wish I could dance like Mr. Six.

I knew a couple that ended up having a kid with progeria. He was a total dick, she was a hundred pounds sopping wet but could drink crates of booze without getting even a wee bit drunk. I swear she was a mutant. She was also ridiculously beautiful.

That's all I got.
 
2014-01-12 05:08:24 AM
I feel bad for the kid, but he was a Patriots fan.
 
2014-01-12 05:14:14 AM
sorry, kid

it gets going a lot faster

And why is that, too out of the box? I thought it was a creative way to express the subjectivity of lifespan. If you want a thread full of dull, predictable comments, try yahoo.

Damn - this kid was awesome. Thank you so much for sharing this - now I need to get off my ass and actually put a plan in motion and quit thinking about why I can't do it. What an inspiration.

RIP little guy - the world is a better place because of you.

Over in two?
Really?
That was the most obvious of jokes.  Of course it was the first thing everyone thought of. I'm guessing it was what subby was going for.

Besides, if it was over in two, then I wouldn't have been able to watch the TED talk, which was well worth it.
RIP young man.

Was ist das "Yahoo"?

This is so sad.  In June I had the pleasure of seeing one of the premieres of the documentary with a panel at the end, including the kid's dad.  They Skyped Sam in and had him on the big screen to talk to the audience and take questions (he had finals the next day so couldn't be there himself).  He seemed like an amazing kid with equally amazing, loving parents.  I wish them all the comfort in the world.

Ha, I'm back in middle school. Don't talk to my friend that way, or I'll daydream about hitting you with nunchucks.
