Is Aubrey De Grey, militant biogerentolgist, who believes he can defeat ageing by a throwing lots of chemicals, hormones and technology at an organism. He claims that ageing is merely an 'engineering issue'. He also refuses to beleive any ideas other than his own, and has gone as far as offering $20,000 to anyone that disproves his own ideas.

WELL I FOUND IT AMUSING
