Want to Live Past 90? Drinking Coffee and Alcohol May HelpIf you feel like living longer means having no fun, a new study has good news for you. Researchers at the University of California Irvine have discovered that people who drink coffee and alcohol in moderation actually live longer than those who abstain from both types of beverages.

The results came from the 90+ Study, which began in 2003 as a way to discover what makes people live past 90.

Cloaking Devices Now a Thing

Trekkies rejoice: An invention used on the old TV series to hide the USS Enterprise from hostile craft appears to have become a reality. This as various entities have already worked on replicating the show's legendary Tricorder device used to diagnose a person's medical condition by waving it in the body's general direction.

A team of researchers led by Amanda D.
