Which is very clear, I know that. I very much researched into astronomy, physics, cosmology, etc. for many years. I know what the speed of light is, I know all about those disciplines.

Quote (Henry J @ April 25 2013,09:53)
One of the lines from Peter Pan was something like "clap your hands if you believe in fairies"; they did that to save Tinkerbell from something or other.

Ah, I see.

Peter Pan was possibly the first interactive drama. The scene sounds stupid when described, †but in a live performance it is unbelievably compelling.

We are fortunate that Barry didn't try to start a new religion. Or maybe unfortunate. He might have improved on the competition.

I assume you mean JM Barrie, the author of Peter Pan, not Barry, the tyrant of UD.

I've heard that Barrie was backstage for the first performance of Peter Pan, and was afraid the audience of children would not react appropriately at that scene. He was overwhelmed by the actual response.

OTOH, Barry's preferred religion probably involves children, flames, and statue named Moloch.

The presence of inflammatory-related proteins in the hypothalmus coordinates with ageing responses throughout the body. Gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH)levels fall as one of those responses. Raising GnRH levels by injection stimulates adult neurogenesis and the reduction of ageing symptoms in mice.

GnRH is already on the market. Just go to your doc and say you're infertile, and Clomid isn't working for you.

I will go ahead and do that, then.  I wonder if my doc will remember that the reason I am infertile is that vasectomy a while back.
