Ed was asking on Facebook what it would be like if we didn't age visibly so much - after all, other animals don't tend to.
Is this actually true? Thinking about it, most other animals don't seem to get wrinkled in the same way, nor does their fur turn completely white or all fall out. But is this just some animals? Do other animals age visibly the same way we do? Or is there something odd about people?
I just came back from a planet where the dominant lifeform had no bilateral symmetry, and all I got was this stupid F-Shirt.
