Aubrey's Balls

Seems the anti-aging cause has reached the big time. If you define big-time as having a link on the Drudge Report. That is what happened today as Drudge linked to this fascinating story about Aubrey de Grey in The Journal of Higher Education.

Who the hell is Dr. de Grey? How do I feel about him?

Look to your right. See the little blinking cream and green bug?

The Methuselah Foundation/ Methuselah Mouse MPrize is the foundation mentioned in this article. Relentless Improvement has been a contributor and staunch supporter of the foundation. We also link to it on the "links" page of (other good 3rd party links there too).

So, go read that article, get your exercise, eat right, sensibly employ premium-quality supplements and live long enough to live forever.

Oh yeah, the title of this blog post? ...

"There are people who say that if Aubrey says it must be right then it must be wrong." At the same time, despite his criticism, Mr. Finkelstein has some appreciation for Mr. de Grey's role as provocateur. "I like him," he says. "He ruffles feathers. He has the balls to say stuff."
