    Most rich people are not science morons. They know what herd immunity is.

    Question is, if this discovery extends the average human life in America by 2 years, how do we cope with the added demand on our resources?

    What happens when we cure cancer and heart disease, and average humans in America live to be 100 years old? Suppose this happens whilst us Boomers are around still?

    It would make our population bomb nuclear.

    The trick is not so much to extend life, rather to eliminate the things that make older people a burden and to help them be productive.

    "Productive"? Fuck that noise. No power on earth could drag me back to full time employment now.

    I intend to be happy the rest of my life, as far as possible. Annoy elected officials. Become a master gardener. Learn to bake bread.

    I won't do another fucking thing that I could not do wearing my pajamas, as long as I live.

    And I am the UNSELFISH Boomer, among people my age.
