The f*ck is spermidine and why is this guy eating so much of it?

My telomere stretching cream is a bargain at only $56,995 a jar.

I don't know but it has "sperm" in the name so I'd skip it.

Who has the time anymore to live forever?

So, he eats well, exercises and keeps stress down?

That's not 'reducing his age.' That is just 'taking care of yourself', which $800M can do for someone.

We are likely going to crack the aging riddle within a century or two, and maybe even have some treatment that will allow for extended lifespans in another fifty years or so--beyond, 'eat right and exercise and have regular check-ups.'

Fetal tissue injections, magic herbs, electric fields, it's hookum and smoke, but that is hardly a new thing. Though, maybe if we could convince a few billionaires that infusions of quicksilver would make them immortal, the world might be a better place in a few years.

If this guy comes to see you, be sure and have plenty of air freshener handy, and maybe keep some windows open:

I have a weathly girlfriend who fears aging and death.
Her self care FaceTime in the mirror is 49 minutes a night, and $100 worth of product.
Time she'll never get back.
Not going to argue with her. She's in her 60s, and I loved her enough never to aggravate her.

Money won't buy you time with loved ones.

Is it really living?

Pretty much all the immortals in Highlander were rich. Between the interest rates in bank accounts compounded over centuries, and the knickknacks around their homes becoming valuable historical artifacts, they made a pretty good living.

Everyone is immortal until they die. Look both ways when you cross the street.

Imagine living long enough to get your retirement account high enough to enjoy life at the end. Of course the two would be working against each other since you'd have to retire at 150 to have enough money to live to 200 comfortably.

I initially saw that as "fecal."

I would rather die five years earlier than eat that diet.

Teleromase shortening is like photocopying a book over and over and over until eventually it's illegible.
I don't want to be 90 years old for 100 years.  I want to be 25 years old for 100 years, then die suddenly.  Logan's Run had it right.

It's a tradeoff between aging and cancer. You can be immortal like Henrietta Lacks if you don't mind living on as highly mutated blobs of tissue in petri dishes around the world.

Guy goes to his doctor, says "Doc, I want to live to be a hundred."
Doc says"No problem - become a vegan, stop smoking, drinking, and getting high, and quit chasing skirt and driving fast cars."
Guy:"So, if I do all that, I'll live to be a hundred?"
Doc: "No, but it will seem like it."

If eating sperm makes you live longer, then Subby's Mom is going to live forever.

You can't exactly account for a person's self-destructive behavior, but If I am physically 30 at 70, if everything is paid off and I have the equivalent of 50 grand a year in the year 2050 (so either 200 bottle caps, 50 deer hides, or $100,000K), I could enjoy myself for at least 2 decades.

Eventually you would have to unretire, but taking a 2 decade vacation sounds fun. Take a decade off. Go back to school. In a not-american country, preferably, otherwise you'll have to work for 40 years all over again.  Work for 20 years. Build up the nest egg. It would be great.

If I was the only one. If living forever is the norm, life-long servitude is the norm.

So they come up with some markers and a bit of math to determine an 'epigenetic age'. If you focus on reducing those markers that doesn't necessarily correlate to anything. It'd be like surgery to extend your lower legs to reduce your BMI. It's not like your actual health would change much.

Yay -- live long enough to watch everyone you love wither and die!

Just kidding, these creepy dipshiats are incapable of loving anything that isn't their own reflection in the mirror.

It's a good thing that people who are young never die.

What the world needs, obviously, is immortal poor people.

Because fark those guys, lets take their miserable lives and prolong it eternally.

i would guess MOST 47 year olds are in better shape than they were at 42..... We care more.   42 is like the final age when you realize you can't do the thing you did in your early 30's.

Which is why I'm going to die with a surprised look on my face "What do you mean the gods took their favor back?"

lotta naysayers but been following the poor man's version and healthier in my 40's than I was in my 20's. With any luck I'll be able to skip retirement altogether and literally work myself into the grave, haha suckers!

We already have them-they're called corporations, and every one of them is a sociopath.
