968 more years?

According to this report, a gentleman named Aubrey de Grey, a biomedical gerontologist, "believes [that] the first person to live to 1,000 has already been born and told the meeting that periodic repairs to the body using stem cells, gene therapy and other techniques could eventually stop the aging process entirely."

Well, I guarantee you that's not going to be me. Sometimes 968 more days seems all too much for me. [Furiously calculates.] So if I'm still blogging on October 15 2008, well, that'll be something.

My t-shirt motto of the day: "Life is hard. Why prolong it?"
