 Longevity myths - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Longevity myths include the Fountain of Youth myth, the village elder myth, the Shangri-La myth, the "Nationalist" myth, etc. Each myth derives a separate motivation for age exaggeration.
It is typical that extreme longevity claims come from remote areas where recordkeeping is poor, but generally observed life expectancy is rather lower than in the areas where genuine claims are typically found.
Longevity myths did not come in for serious scrutiny until the work of W.J. Thoms in 1873, and the odd wire correspondent looking for a captivating filler reports extreme undocumented claims to this day: in early 2000 a Nepalese man claimed to have been born in 1832, citing as evidence a card issued in 1988.

 BBL - Longevity Records of North American Birds
The maximum longevity record cannot be longer than the time span that researchers have been studying that species, and the lifespan of the bands used on birds was shorter than the lifespan of the birds for some species.
If you are checking your recoveries for longevity records, please remember that we do not use encounters for which we cannot obtain the encounter date or encounters of band or band and bone only.
June is therefore assumed to be month 00 with July month 01, August 02, etc. For example, a bird banded as an SY (second year) in July 1990 and encountered in August 1997 would be 8 years and 02 months of age since it hatched in 1989.

 Digital longevity
As we begin to engage in preservation of information in digital form, we need to make a conceptual leap from preserving a physical object to preserving informational content that may be completely disembodied from any physical artifact.
While no one has yet solved the broad set of problems around digital longevity, there are a number of particular actions we can take that will improve the likelihood that a work we seek to save will remain accessible over a prolonged period of time.
Work on this and a number of related problems for longevity of digital images was begun as part of a Spring 1999 invitational meeting sponsored by the Commission on Preservation and Access, the National Information Standards Organization, and the Research Libraries Group (Besser 1999).

The book is unique in that Butler not only describes the medical and social problems that can be anticipated in the United States when baby boomers reach retirement age but also suggests bold and radical solutions for these upcoming problems.
The main premise of the book is that the anticipated catastrophic increases in rates of disability and the cost of health care among older people could be avoided if the United States committed itself to a large-scale scientific project akin to NASA's Apollo program of flights to the moon.
Butler states that his proposed program "could be dubbed the Apollo Program for Aging and Longevity Science" and goes on to explain that "the present level of development of aging and longevity research justifies an Apollo-type effort to control aging.
