On rereading, it occurred to me that anyone who doesn't know that
Doug Skrecky spends a lot of his time experimenting with life
extension supplements to feed to fruit flies might find my
statement insensitive and morbid.  Sorry for any misunderstanding.

Anyhow, Doug -- In case one of us has a relative (thinking of my
mom) who is interested in the future, but doesn't have the money
or the initiative to go through the cryonics sign-up process,
how would we go about arranging this "low cost brain mummification 
job", especially on short notice?
