Eternal life, anyone?

I ran across Sherwin Nuland's piece Do You Want to Live Forever? in the MIT Technology Review. Hightly recommended reading if you have a basic understanding of molectular biology. The piece tells of self-taught biologist Aubrey de Grey who is convinced we can develop technology to stop and even reverse the effects of aging. I'm not sure I'd like to live forever, but I could probably keep myself busy for at least a few hundred years if my body could be sustained. Fascinating stuff, via Slashdot.

Fluent in Finnish and curious about sex?

I should clarify: sex as in gender. SETA has a test for tesing your gender, which I hadn't encountered before: Testaa sukupuolesi.

According to the test I'm androgynous. Apparently, my masculine and feminine side are in balance. Fortunately I'm more masculine than feminine though. Fun to know, unless you have some nasty inhibitions...

Todo == Not done yet...

I have yet to update my CV... Argh.
