What those pesky Russians were really up to...


The Tentacled One

I'm not really sure how well-known the background material here is, but it's a subject I've been following for as long as I can remember. When I was a kid, Jeanne Calment was still alive and appeared in Guinness World Record books and stuff like that. Her name would always come up in popular science publications whenever the subject of aging or human lifespan was being discussed.

This might get more coverage later, if investigation uncovers anything more definitive. But I do have to say that their evidence for fraud looks pretty compelling on the surface.
