The Methuselah Foundation, a foundation dedicated to funding longevity research, will next week auction on eBay a lunch with Futurist Ray Kurzweil. Among other predictions, Kurzweil has theorized that more technological innovations will occur in the current decade than the entire 20th Century.
He's now a longevity buff. The lunch will be prepared in accordance with the life extension dietary guidelines of his new book. (And if it works, who knows, maybe the happy winner and Kurzweil can watch reruns of The Golden Girls together 115 years from now.)
The auction starts July 5.
The foundation sponsors the "Methuselah Mouse Prize," a $1.3 million prize offered to the scientific research team who develops the longest living mouse.
