In Search of the Fountain of Youth

06/20/2020 9:55 PM

Another clue has been discovered in the search to combat the effects of aging...

To avoid side effects, I prefer the proven and traditional method of selling one's soul to Satan, in return for eternal life. Fiddling with plasma is very risky, compared with a simple, written transaction conducted with an established, powerful entity.

Pope Sylvester II has shown the way:

and the above link gives example documents you may use as templates. The pen is mightier than the injection needle.

Drinking the blood of beautiful women has been rumored to also be effective at extending one's life. Watch out for wooden stakes though.

I wonder if draining some blood would be beneficial or if the new blood produced in the marrow is less likely to prevent aging? Maybe just a little cut here and a little cut there would be a way to remove the old inhibited proteins, but as with anything don't overdo it. Many a person who has embraced these principles may have been thought to have suicided.

Maybe the old doctors were onto something with the bleeding or use of leaches to remove tired blood. With leaches though, the Society Against Leach Exploitation may picket the leach farms and withdraw arms from feeders.
