But then there's telomerase which adds repeats to the ends of the chromosomes...

What I was wondering was if there is any process by which the the cell knows how old it is, and maybe "aging" is influenced in that way? Am I explaining myself well?

well, technically spiders aren't insects. So, no it's not a spider. I heard that people swallow some ridicuolous number like 3 a night. I haven't tested it scientifically, but I think that's crap. Maybe three a year, maybe. Probably more like three a lifetime... Em, the point of that was that I've h...

That's interesting. Have heard about "aged cells" with short telomeres before also, but I don't know how much the telomeres are involved in the life cycle of the animal as a whole. I would think that the way you understand it is correct. The sheep would grow as normal, but degeneration of ...

doubt it! Although, I think there is a lot less evolution occuring in our society, people are now surviving, who in a natural selection scene would certainly not be counted among the "fit".
We need an ice age or something, kickstart evolution again! Roll on global warming!
