    Who would want it anyway, unless all your friends and loved ones could have it too?

    Not likely unless they can get around to solving the fact everything your brain included decays over time.

    Even if possible.... I would kind of hate to live in a world where stupid wealthy bitches like Paris Hilton could liver forever. I'd rather see this technology never come to pass.

    Also from the you-can't-make-this-stuff-up-folks science news department...

    And you thought S.O.S* was a joke...

    Japanese Scientist Creates Meat Using Human Feces

    Japanese scientists have found a way to create artificial meat using sewage containing human feces. The scientists claim that they have even created edible steaks from the biological concoction. Mitsuyuki Ikeda, a researcher from the Okayama Laboratory, lead the discovery after Tokyo Sewage approached him regarding an overabundance of sewage mud. Asked to explore the possible uses for the waste, Ikeda found that the mud contained a great deal of protein due to the high bacteria content.

    The discovery led to the creation of steaks based on the protein from the excrement. The “meat” is 63% proteins, 25% carbohydrates, 3% lipids and 9% minerals. Scientists are hoping to roll out the meat for mass consumption, pricing it the same as actual meat in stores. Whether or not the public will accept the fecal meat, however, is another matter.

    In Soviet Russia, Armageddon predicts you.

    This article is pretty interesting. If it works, idk if it is a good thing or a bad thing though.

    The Russians also thought Communism was going to work out for them taking over the world. How well did that work out?

    Too bad when you die your brain immediately begins undergoing ischemia and essentially initiates the process of cell death. Considering we still won't have an idea on how to stop that for at least a while from now I'm seriously doubting this guy has any idea what he's doing.

    A really interesting book that deals with a similar prospect is Altered carbon by Richard K morgan. Fiction, but brilliant, and explored the whole digitized human consciousness and all it's implications. It's fascinating, and apparently, now its plausible O_O
    I'd recommend it for anyone, but be aware, it can get a little graphic.

    I would totally sign up. The rest of you can die as scheduled since you're not interested.

    What? I'm sure it'll be a prolong inevitable degradation of the body, like it is now... Just add more years in a wheelchair or vegged out in a bed half the day... who'd want to be alive to see loved one die for that many years anyways?
    Imagine if this were you true, and you and maybe your whole family got this lil scientific miracle for yourselves to enjoy FOREVER.... but your friends did, your husband didn't, favorite celebrities didn't... whatever you love now will be over and forgotten, and in a world where the up and coming generation cares little for the wisdom you hold, it seems pointless to stick around long enough to see it go to waste. IMHO*

    I personally feel this can become a reality one day soon, but perhaps not soon enough. And even if this project becomes a success ordinary citizens won't have the opportunity to participate. Obviously scientists will use this to their advantage and charge a considerable amount of money in exchange for an extra life span. Such an opportunity would then be exclusive to the founders of the project and would be available for the ultra-rich. It would be a long time after that for the opportunity to reach the ordinary citizen.

    But the idea of its success frightens me though...

    So was the satellite, until it wasnt. Science fiction and science aren't as unrelated as you might imagine.

    Still seems pretty far fetched icon_smile.gif
