Can You Buy Some Extra Years?

No More $enescence!
Big Money Folks Want to Live Longer

....And what Big Bucker$ want, they usually get. Then, after the prices go down, the rest of us buy some at CVS. Over the counter, maybe.

Anti-aging Pills Aplenty
Am I Getting Any Younger?
More Fountain of Youth Stuff 

You've undoubtedly read some of the Google gazillions are going into longevity research with Calico
Genomics guru Craig Venter and innovation specialist Peter Diamandis founded Human Longevity Inc.
You've heard of the Segway inventor Dean Kaman; and there's Ray Kurzweil. The list of major investments and investors is Looong.

And the websites! Longevity is a whole new category. Like Aging 2.0. And many, many more.

Stay young(ish) out there.
