> Cryonicists at Frozen Dead Guy Festival Claim:  "Not All
> Frozen Guys Are Dead!"

"Cryonicists," plural? You mean there is now more than one of
you? A sobering thought.

In my days as a journalist, if I had received a "press
release" such as yours, it would have automatically gone into
the "lone eccentric" category. Journalists are innately
skeptical and any attempt to convince them that you are
really not a loony will merely be a source of mild amusement.

You might just as well have written something along the
lines, "Advocates for a Slightly Concave Earth will be
participating at the annual Flat Earth Festival in the hope
of convincing visitors of the scientific viability of
slightly-concavism, which should not be confused with the
absurdity of flat-earthism."

To acquire credibility, you need more than a bogus
organization consisting of yourself as "CEO." The total lack
of any references or credentialled sources in your "press
release," coupled with your implicit admission that the two
cryonics organizations don't want anything to do with you,
is an immediate tipoff that you are not to be taken
