Mice and men
A comment of mine on Slashdot resulted in quite a cascade of replies. The debate at hand was if it's a good idea to prolong the human lifespan or not. I'm not that sure it is, but there was some good arguments for doing so as well. The background: "The Methuselah Mouse contest was created in an effort to boost research into human longevity."
In essence there really hasn't been anything remarkable to write about today, I'll shut up with my dignity still somewhat intact.
