Some info on the 'Methuselah' tree. Apparently it's the longest living thing alive. However I was wrong when I stated earlier that it is a species. Methuselah is the name of a specific bristlecone pine tree that is 4725 years old. There is also a somewhat interesting NOVA doco on Methuselah. Someone needs to update the wikipedia entry on Methuselah, because the biblical Methuselah doesn't hold a candle to this tree, he lived and died during the course of this trees life.
Lo-res pic included.
