Actually, all it suggests is that 30% of people consider
cryonics kind of a neat idea and might consider it if it
were free in more ways than one -- easy, didn't have to
argue with relatives over it, etc.

Just checking a box on a survey doesn't dredge up the
abandonment stuff and evoke the procrastination response
in the way that being presented with paperwork does.  Some
people probably checked it just because it had a higher
dollar value, having no real understanding of what it was
all about.
