Long before he was creating zombie rodents for the Pentagon, biochemist Mark Roth became fascinated with the idea of immortality. Now, he’s found a way to "significantly increase life span[s]" — at least in worms. And the key is the same substance that Roth uses to turn mice into the semi-undead

nothing about zombie mice sounds like a good idea to me lol, i would rather we not have an accidental escape of a mouse that spreads the virus/disease to other mice, and potentially humans.
i have seen enough zombie movies to know it doesn't end well for humanity when this brand of science is tinkered with

I'm keeping my kitty cat in the same room as me at ALL TIMES now. (ok, only half serious here...but still...it's kinda creepy.)
