Old enough to have seen the opening of Old Busch, still young enough to operate whatever this typewriter thing is...

Today, a little older.
Don't panic.
Exactly!
But a few shots wouldn’t hurt.

There are still 2 players on the roster older than me.
I'm really hoping Bartolo finds his way back to the Show so someone on any roster is still older than me.
Wait, is he older than i think or are you younger?
I'm 44 now. I think the Big(ger) Sexy(er) is 47.

Wanna get younger? Well, you soon might be able to:
Human ageing process biologically reversed in world first

The ageing process has been biologically reversed for the first time by giving humans oxygen therapy in a pressurised chamber. Scientists in Israel showed they could turn back the clock in two key areas of the body believed to be responsible for the frailty and ill-health that comes with growing older.

As people age, the protective caps at the ends of chromosomes – called telomeres – shorten, causing DNA to become damaged and cells to stop replicating. At the same time, "zombie" senescent cells build up in the body, preventing regeneration. Increasing telemere length and getting rid of senescent cells is the focus of many anti-ageing studies, and drugs are being developed to target those areas.

Now scientists at Tel Aviv University have shown that giving pure oxygen to older people while in a hyperbaric chamber increased the length of their telomeres by 20 per cent, a feat that has never been achieved before. Scientists said the growth may mean that the telomeres of trial participants were now as long as they had been 25 years earlier. The therapy also reduced senescent cells by up to 37 per cent, making way for new healthy cells to regrow. Animal studies have shown that removing senescent cells extends remaining life by more than one third.

That's both awesome and troubling. I really am not sure I want to live forever, and I sure as hell don't want people like Donald Trump to.

The crispr cas9 technology will probably be involved in reversing aging as well sometime in the next decade or so.
