Meet the turquoise killifish, the subject of my latest column for The New York Times​. It's an animal that packs a lifetime into a few months. Scientists are now studying it for clues about how we grow old.  http://www.nytimes.com/2015/03/03/science/in-short-lived-fish-secrets-to-aging.html
Turquoise killifish last no more than a few months, giving researchers a faster way of learning more about the mechanics of getting older.

The real question is why this became a story in the first place?

It's getting a little uncomfortable, isn't it? Creepy even. Watching Tony Abbott beat himself to death.

Introduction
I try to apply the "keep it simple" principle to all aspects of my life. But as I have found, it is KIS and not KISS, because there is nothing simple or stupid about keeping it simple - the second law of thermodynamics really does apply to you as an 'isolated system' :)

Software geek/nerd by necessity.

2 wonderful boys, 1 beautiful wife, 0 regrets
