I like to compare cryonics with Russian Roulette.

Right now ALL people who are NOT signed up with a cryonics provider are
playing Russian Roulette with a revolver in which ALL the chambers are
filled with bullets.

Cryonics lets you play by removing SOME of the bullets.

You don't know in advance how many chambers are in the revolver.

You don't know how many bullets were removed.

You only know that you have a choice and you MUST play.

When YOUR TURN COMES to pull the trigger you can either use the "standard"
popular gun with all the chambers filled with bullets or you can use the
cryonics gun in which some bullets HAVE been removed.

Your turn.

You must play.

Which gun do you choose?

Just my opinion,
