American Scientists, who have lately been experimenting on mice, have just confirmed that the 16 Century 'Countess Bathory' was correct all along and that, although she did not have access to the latest medical techniques, bathing in Virgin's blood would have almost certainly rejuvenated her.

If it works on humans, I can see nothing to stop a rich person employing a young person to supply them with a supply of fresh 'young' blood.

'If it works on humans'

There's no proof that it works on mice.

The experiments were done on groups of four mice in each experiment. That's enough to suggest avenues for further work. Nothing more.

I sense a hint of sarcasm.

Nah, more likely it's humour :)

That's funny, I 'fit-the-bill' on 3 out 4 of those descriptors.

Is there a prize for guessing the 1 out of 4 that doesn't fit-the-bill?

  bumpkin 16:05 05 May 2014

HB, stay out of the bloody bath then.
