Today's definition was inspired by Rob Sawyer's newest novel, Rollback. It is a story about a happily married (60 years!) couple who get "Rollbacks" -- medical procedures which are supposed to turn their 80-year old bodies into 25-year ones. It works for the husband, but unfortunately not for the wife -- which puts a bit a test on their marriage when they start to develop different levels of "need". ~ James
