This is part of message 653 on http://groups.yahoo.com/group/CryonicsEurope/

I finally got here after visiting the news.BBC.co.uk link to CI and
getting more and more interested in what was involved.

I clearly thought this type of thing was beyond my financial ability
but clearly that is not the case.

This suggests that the message that cryonics is affordable is getting
access. If you watch the video on
http://www.cryonics-europe.org/breakfast.htm you will see the message that
cryonics is relatively cheap via life insurance being transmitted on BBC
television in the UK. Not only that, but this message was near the end of
the item, so should remain in people's minds. There were also many local
radio interviews, most of which we have yet to put up on the web, as we are
waiting for the tape form the agency. The Radio 5 one, also on
http://www.cryonics-europe.org contained the message that cryonics is
affordable as well.
