Q.E.D.
That is interesting about the half-life of Bismuth 209 (well at my age, it's exciting )
On my website I have a time converter that spans a range of units from the Planck time all the way up to the half-life of Bismuth 209, the value of which I found was 2 1018 years. I think that value has been around for decades. Was that the theoretical value to which you referred?
Anyway, if the new value 1.9 1019 years is correct, I guess I'll have to update that converter.

Not only that - think of the marketing potential of that new data:
Bismuth 209 - now with 95% less radioactvity!!!
