Someone wrote recently about the horrible possibility that signing up for
cryonics might give you "false hope".


You either have some hope or no hope.

"False hope" is an oxymoron.

And, of course, some people are just plain hopeless.

Still picking up the broken debris, driving around closed streets and
bridges, and fixing gas water heaters here outside of Olympia.

One friendly and well intentioned person corrected me about my posting that
the 6.8 earthquake in Olympia was a "Big One".

My reply was,"You weren't there."

My tolerance for "numbers" and "statistics" has finally reached its limit.
When your goddamned world is falling down around your ears for the fourth
time in your life, you simply get fed up with ivory tower assessments.

Life has an IQ test.  It is called cryonics.

Hope everyone reading passes the IQ test and signs up for cryonics.

To those who don't, regardless of "reason"... Bye!

George Smith
