    Could humans live to 500 years old? Scientists believe genetic tweaks could significantly extend our lifespan

    • Californian scientists tweaked two genetic pathways in the worm Caenorhabditis elegans to amplify its lifespan
    • They said the worms lived to the human equivalent of 400 to 500 years
    • Research raises the prospect of anti-ageing treatments based on genetic interactions, and the next step is to investigate if the effects occur in mice

    Ha! Ha! Ha!

    Can't you just see some frisky 500 yr. old trying to turn on some 200 yr. old young thing without enough money to pay for the horrendous amount of Viagra that would be needed?

    Then again ... perhaps Obamacare will cover it, if he is a lib!

    I can't imagine someone who would want to live that long.

    Years ago, I read a science fiction short story about a guy who discovered eternal life without having to age. At first it was fun, but he went mad after about 150 years IIRC.

    The population of the US has more than doubled since I started high school. I've seen social, political and economic changes that sicken me.

    No thank you.
