13 Weeks: Thinking Out Loud


I don't want to achieve immortality through my work. I want to achieve it through not dying. -- Woody Allen

So the first thing on my list for the next 13 Weeks experiment is the same thing that led to my first experiment a year ago: I want to be healthier and less likely to die relatively young, like my father (a month after his 69th birthday) or my mother (2 days before her 77th.) Plus, the longer I hold out, the more likely something like the NAD+ research will come along to really lengthen things. I've heard people talk about how they wouldn't want to live forever, but you know what? In the depths of depression I had thoughts like that, and when the depression went away they stopped.

Me, I'm going to keep climbing the tree as long as the tree holds out. (Geek quiz: who am I quoting?)
