Yah, unfortunately I agree.

Shameful really to see how supposedly rational people are still afflicted by irrational and disordered thinking.

This is nothing but scientific mysticism.

The same crowd is convinced humanity is going to live on other planets. Its a totally absurd notion of course.

JR Ridinger of Shop.com / Market America, has been saying that for years, with several specialist doctors supporting his ideas with products. HGH was the elixir at one point, but there are other supplements touted by many internet purveyors.
Somewhere there may be one who holds the truth.
I recall one article, since lost the site, that claimed products centrifuged from the blood of young people could be infused into older people with amazing results.
"Or was that Anne Rice?"

Yeah right, the brain is one of the things that sizzles-out first.

Yes; but think about how many years the rich will have to worry about dying?

William Shakespeare, Julius Caesar: A coward dies a thousand times before his death, but the valiant taste of death but once. It seems to me most strange that men should fear, seeing that death, a necessary end, will come when it will come.

30 families in USA own 52% of the land. Should people who wouldn't allow even 10% of their land to be sold for more than what is worth be allowed to hang on to all their acreage indefinitely, regardless of how many are living in this country? We still have states where the entire population does not equal largest cities in the USA. We still have a great many living in the places with the worst benefits.

Why live by railroad tracks if they won't accept passengers? Why live in a river flood plain just because they were the easiest places to get to before airplanes, cars or trains? Why live in places that have frequent hurricanes? If you don't want to feel crowded in, why live in a town of a few million vs town with few people.
There are virtual ghost towns with less than 10 people, if a person wants to be a hermit. There are towns with a few hundred where you can get an apartment for $400 without gov't subsidy. There are small towns where you can buy a house for under $30,000.

Our life spans on the average have been getting shorter, the corporate gov't causes much of this.
