What can we learn from those Amazing old Sharks ? Answered

Currently a Greenland shark (Somniosus microcephalus) is good for 400 year lifetime.

I would do an annual harbor swim of port Nuuk and consume Hákarl  (cured shark)  followed by a jigger of Brennivín known as (Black_Death) for just another 100 years added to my life.

Any ideas of a better method will be worthy of support and consideration.

"Cold can also activate antiaging genes that help an animal better fold proteins, get rid of DNA-damaging molecules, and even fight off infections more effectively, extending life span. The cold-activated molecules “are evolutionarily conserved” across the animal kingdom, and thus these pathways very likely exist in us and these sharks too"
