Average mouse lifespan is about 1.5 to 2 years! http://exoticpets.about.com/cs/careofmice/a/mousecare.htm 220.127.116.11 (talk) 06:23, 13 September 2011 (UTC)
Something in this foundation reeks of scam...
- links on the wiki page are overwhelmingly from their own web page (talk about reliable sources)
- half of the contestants for their money prizes sit in their scientific advisory board
- only thing they present on their web page is donation requests in many many different forms, all for a good cause, all aimed at people who are somehow ill, elderly or otherwise about to die
- no research papers, no journal references, no academic content, i.e. no substance
I wonder how much of the money actually goes to the mice or whatever the intended purpose is. I hope I'm wrong. The idea is good, but idealism often... ah well.
nominated for speedy deletion under 'db-g11'
Nearly every citation refers back to the Foundations website. This cannot be fixed, this article appears to exist purely for the purposes of self-promotion and advertisement, thus I have nominated it for speedy deletion, --TimL (talk) 18:43, 3 July 2011 (UTC)
Other languages point to MPrize and not to "Metusaleh foundation"
For some reason (deliberate or not) all the other languages point to explaining MousePrize rather than explaining "Metuselah foundation" that one would expect.
Sourcing is terrible
If this article were cut back to WP:RSes, it would literally just be the sentence about Thiel money.
