Mighty mouse?

Scientists modify a mouse gene to create a super-active, super-long-lived, super-healthy mouse.

My questions:

1. Do we actually want to live twice as long?
2. Do we actually want to be seven times as active? Can you imagine what that would do to human society?
3. As the article rightly points out, this has to do something to the mice’s brains. What might it do to ours?
