pandora’s box

In the news…

If you haven’t heard it yet…how to become younger has been solved!

A young person’s blood is transfused into an older person’s veins, and this wakes up the older person’s stem cells and the result reverses the aging process. Researchers have found this process works in mice. And we are next.

You know the saying “Money talks” well Blood talks too, literally. The news also said there were studies decades ago and were forgotten until now.

College students have a tradition of selling their blood when there’s a need for a few bucks. In the near future, they may be able to pay their way through college by selling their blood every six weeks.

As I did as a seminary student. Baylor hospital made sure we knew they wanted our non smoking and non drinking blood at enough bucks a pint. My diet was very good at the seminary and it seemed to me as money left on the table.

Would leaders who have enough followers donating blood to them have no problems staying young? Would children donate to their parents to keep their parents young? The consequences of this last one is mind boggling.

Does this mean we’ll have to become rich to stay alive? Will this be a big incentive and cause the economy to begin to roll big-time? Could young blood be cloned?

I remember a movie which featured time credits which allowed a person to live beyond a certain age. The credits were transferred through a person’s inside forearm. Without the credits a person dies.

If this new type of young-to-old transfusion became illegal, would there be a rush to create clandestine labs? Transfusion labs on ships in international waters? Has pandora’s box already been opened? Here come the snake oil salespersons with a real product but are they hygienic?

This started out as a humorous piece but it took on its own way. Happy 2015.
