I want to live forever

Slate has: How To Talk When You Can't Speak

Besides the cheap shot at the end regarding stem cells which the article doesn't even mention if stem cell research could help, or if anything has even been theorized or tried, or even if we're talking about embryonic stem cells (it is Slate after all), the rest is fascinating. I thought Futurama was silly with their talking heads in jars of liquid, but we keep heading down those lines where we might have the potential to outlive our bodies in some manner. Also interesting is the theory that the brain needs to stay active or it loses some of its ability, I think alzheimer's disease research is pointing this way too. Keep your mind active!
