Random Weirdness from the World of Science

Recently, I heard an interview with a scientist who has been researching aging and how to reverse the aging process in mice.  I lovingly refer to this as “The Vampire” theory, because it is based on the premise that aging can be slowed, or even reversed, by transferring blood from young mice into older, genetically identical mice.  I just can’t stop thinking about whether or not this is why vampires, in books and movies, always targeted the young, hip set? You never saw Edward Cullen skulking around outside the nursing homes! Just sayin’!
