Some Ground Rules:

- This blog is free of all racist, ableist, sexist, fatphobic, queerphobic, and transphobic shit and I will tolerate no one who brings these things into my space

- I don't mind answering questions or asks about social justice topics but please remember that I am not here specifically to educate you or anybody else

- I will gladly tag all of my posts if anybody feels triggered or uncomfortable by what I blog but again please remember that this is my blog and I will always put my own safety and mental health first

- This is my space and if you respect me then I will respect you. Simple as that.

Let's keep it positive folks! : )

How Long Do Animals Live? How Can We Live Longer?
An infographic exploration of animal longevity, from hare-today-gone-tomorrow to near-eternal-tortoises. What do you think makes some animals live longer than others, predators notwithstanding? Google that and let me know what you find, science detectives.
As for what it means for the future longevity of humans, check out these links: 
How to achieve massive longevity without overpopulation
What synthetic biology and utilizing nature’s genetic tools might mean for tweaking our lifespan.
Finally, a thought experiment: If our cells can become somewhat “immortal” in diseases like cancer, what’s to say that we can’t harness some of that biology and apply it to extending human lives without disease?

Actually, there are giant tortoises that exist in this world who have lived up to 300 years old, and jellyfish are technically immortal so…
