"The upside is you live a ridiculously long and healthy life, canít develop cancer, feel very little pain, never get lonely and have great skin right to the end.

The downside is you breathe stinky air, rarely go outside, tend to get cold, donít see well, live in a monarchy and canít count on having sex. (Also, youíre a naked mole rat.)"
