  • Hi – I am interested in maximizing my lifespan and was wondering if there are others here who are also interested in this? If so, what strategies are you using to do this? I suggest a new subtopic under the Health & Fitness forum called ‘longevity’ or something like that.

  • this is my daily smoothie routine; avocado, spinach, mint, carrot juice, almond milk, protein, frozen peaches, and other stuff. (deleted the video link as it’s 6 minutes and I should do one that’s only 2 minutes.) Is there any other people who have a green smoothie daily?

  • I want to interview a few guests to test out my podcasting capabilities. The podcast which I want to start is called ‘The Cast’ and can be found at this URL – I am looking for people with interests in lifespan maximizing technologies and methods. In exchange for your help I will pay 20$ per interview. I listen to Singularity One on One and I think that he (Socrates) is a great interviewer and gets all of the great guests… but my only problem with him is that he comes at it from more of a socialist angle. Whereas I will come at things from a anarcho-capitalist angle 🙂
