its clear to all that what you describe ends with a bullet through your head.
With all the "bad", this post is one of those things that remind me why I've been lurking around here for so many years.
As an italian I can testify you are wrong.
You don't arrive late thinking you are in time.
You arrive late and blame traffic, war, biblical plagues; and share simpaty with other meeting partecipants.
I hope the neutrinos were early (for the sake of new physics), but still, they were behaving terribly rude!
Which is a good sign for the usefulness of telomerase for single cells.
And an obvious problem if instead you want to use it for whole organisms.
Most of the stuff we know helps cells live longer, cancer already knew. And its using it.
which makes it a little complicated to go from the lab to a pill that makes you live longer.
Vodafone charges more than that for an sms in roaming, (for some european plans.)
Besides most sms are much shorter than the limit. so 600 bits looks more that average. that would be 0.80 $
So there you have it.
Vodafone is more expensive.

It's already known that ants use celestial clues to establish the general direction home, but how do they know exactly the number of steps to take that will lead them right to the entrance of their nest?"
To find out, scientists allowed a group of ants to go off foraging for food; while they were out, they extended the legs of some using sheep hair while shortening the legs of others. After releasing them to return home, it turns out that they all attempted to take the same number of steps on the return journey that it took to arrive. The ants with longer legs overshot the nest while the ants with shorter legs stopped too soon.
After returning them all home and allowing for a good night's sleep, they were again allowed to go out and forage for food retaining their new legs for both the journey and the return. Every ant regardless of leg length managed to make it back to the nest successfully."

my feeling, in 30 years this moment will be viewed as the tipping point, the moment in which america stopped being the siphon of the worlds best minds.
For the first time in history the melting pot hasn't managed to retain the best.
Those people will bring a BIG BOOST in their respoective countries ruling intellighentia.
lots of sour grapes here, but have no one else to blame
