Will The Baby Boomers Live Forever?

by Charles Pooter

Are We Having Fun Yet? on BBC 4 hints at the possibility of the Baby Boomer generation living longer and perhaps getting access to anti-geriatric drugs to extend their lifetimes. It didn't mention the next logical link in this chain of reasoning: that if they live long enough to extend their lifespans, they may live long enough to still be around when some genius invents retro-geriatric drugs to make them young again.

Just think: Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, Hillary Clinton, Tony Blair…Bill Oddie…all on final salary pensions for eternity at our expense.

Oddie: Immortal?

I would love that. To have time run backward and be, say, 32, forever.
