None of the young people I have talked to is willing to spend a lot of
money on insurance for the rest of their life. It is simply not worth it
to them. Their priorities are vastly different that the average cryonet
subscriber. Cryonics is only viable to them if the net cost is close to
zero, which it would be if a viable cryonics options costing less than the
company sponsored life insurance were to become available.
