Cambridge University geneticist Aubrey de Grey believes medical science will soon have advanced to the point where people will be able to live to the age of 1,000. As if that wasn’t mindblowing enough, check out Aubrey’s fantastic beard!

I quite like the idea of living for ten millennia centuries. Either that, or have my brain transplanted into a robot. Yes, a robot would be nice. With the strength of ten gorillas!

* The title of this post comes from a joke made by Paul Merton in an old episode of Have I Got News for You, which I watched on UK Gold at 2am the other night when I couldn’t sleep. Thanks, Merton. Therton.

    Wouldn’t ten millennia be 10,000 years?

    Paul Merton was born to be on Have I Got News For You. He was astonishing. But I didn’t care for his run on Room 101.
