I believe they mean double the amount of time you can survive death from old age. I think it's fairly obvious that Bucky Balls won't save you from dying in a car wreck.

Concerning overpopulation, let me note that it won't happen because we will sooner or later run into a capacity limit. In biology the capacity limit is the amount of individual the environment can support. If a population exceed the limit capacity, the mortality will increase and the population will decrease. Simple as that.

In most modern country the ratio is barely above 1:1 (1 born, 1 dead) it is even <1:1 in north america & european cities as far as I remember.

And then came the CFCs, which were the next, next greatest thing since sliced bread. Turned out they weren't so great for the ozone layer.

But fear not! Fortunately for many, dietary supplements are not regulated in the US! So in addition to purchasing your horse manure and arsenic supplements, I'm sure you'll have C60 supplements available before long, if they're not already here.

Yeah that's the problem, we don't need anymore needless suffering and death.

So does this mean I would have to put up with the inevitable cancers this would give me for almost 180 years? No thanks...

Not a single simple Joe Blow could do that, it would be way harder than just doing what is shown on the video.

You did see that their is a second part right? Once again, I already said that the smudge/powder is not perfect buckyballs. The buckyballs should be a beautiful purple color, but what this will produce is a brown/green color... which is obviously incorrect. If you didn't even watch the videos, how do you expect to draw a full conclusion. Trust me, if it has already been figured out how to get this far, I am 85% positive that something this useful will be reduced to very simple/cheap production methods.
Also would like to say... I never condoned drinking this.. Like I said eirlier.. Sure, it will help rats with a small age anyways, but no telling what it would do to you in the long term. (longer than a rat's life span)

Also, if you want to make it 100% correct... this is a way to make it. Cost a tad more (ok, a lot, but it would be cheaper than paying for buckyballs your whole life)
