Recently I was listening to an old episode of Radio Lab.  It was the Mortality episode from June 14, 2007.  The episode was all about various lengths of life and part of the discussion was about various animals that never grow old such as lobsters and tortoises.

Later that same day I decided to browse through io9 and discovered this article, which is all about how tortoises and lobsters never grow old and may hold the key to immortality.

The Odds Must Be Crazy!
