From three weeks ago: http://www.reddit.com/r/Bitcoin/comments/1uyhvc/methuselah_foundation_considering_taking_btc/

For those who don't know, the Methuselah Foundation is a group co-founded by Aubrey de Grey that funds research into the causes of aging, and intends to eventually help find cures for each of these aging-related conditions much like any other kind of disease. Radical proponents of anti-aging believe that we may even hit "escape velocity", the point at which medical technology starts increasing the human lifespan by more than one year ever year, by 2030. I personally think that the Bitcoin community is a perfect fit for this kind of revolutionary medical research that can potentially save billions of lives, including your own, over the next century alone.

Argumentum ad lunam: the fallacy that because Bitcoin's price is rising really fast the currency must be a speculative bubble and/or Ponzi scheme.
