Fearing My Mortality

Many of you know of my already announced genius… It seems now that it may be my greatest downfall

It doesn’t pay to be smart and ignorance really is bliss if you want a long life — at least if you’re a fly, according to new research by a Swiss university.

This is most probably because the increase in neural activity weakens the fly’s life-support systems, they speculated.

“In other terms, the more the fly becomes intelligent, the shorter its lifespan,” the scientists said.

I’m hoping that all of my own brain activity will perhaps only shave a few days or weeks off my life… But I do need to get started on our second generation… Somebody needs to inherit all of my great attributes!
