A Scientist Claims We Can All Live To 150-yrs Old If We Do One (Very Boring) Thing


Imagine living forever. Being able to see absolutely everything from flying cars to the first ever screening of Expendables 19. Becoming a wise old fool that doesn’t actually feel that old at all.

It’d be great. Imagine the fun you could have.

Well, after years and years of extensive research, the prominent scientist and author of the The Ageless Generation, Alex Zhavoronkov believes he's found a solution, one that makes living until at least 150 entirely possible. As long as you give up something that’s generally accepted as brilliant.

No, not peanut butter. Sex.

Zhavronkov believes that living an entire life of celibacy (along with a strict diet obviously) is the key. That the reason none of us are currently living forever is done to a life filled with “energy-sapping distractions.”

Speaking to the Mail Online the 36-year-old (yup, we were disappointed he wasn’t 100 too…) said:


I have sex occasionally, but not on a permanent basis and usually with fellow scientists. Because otherwise, and I’m very sorry for saying it, post-coital interactions can be quite boring.


Delaying marriage and reproduction is a by-product of shifting your life expectancy horizons. It would slow me up and distract me from my research.


Which sounds to us like he’s probably just not met the right person, but, what do we know?

He is however adamant that it’s not just a pipe dream, explaining in a creepily enthusiastic manner to the Telegraph:


When you’re planning on living 150 years, marriage is a big decision. You’re in for the long term! Living to over 150 isn’t unrealistic.

I’m not planning on dying at all. You only need to have lived through the past 30 years to realise anything is possible.


So there you have it. If you want to live forever say goodbye to fun times unless it’s completely necessary, and even then, don’t, we repeat, DO NOT engage in any manner of conversation or cuddles.
