OK -- I added to the forum:  hope that's enough.
I've got things to do before tomorrow morning.
Gotta go. One last thing: what do people
here think of the YouTube "Be a Popsicle"
( http://youtube.com/watch?v=j5TR9peZGOM )?
I don't much like it, and I think it's a *bad* idea to
show it to people who aren't already involved in cryonics,
but I've met one cryonicist who thinks it's hilarious and
shows we can laugh at ourselves ("works for Hillary").
What do you think? Does it belong in an outreach

privilege.  Using pseudonyms just to be clever
or paranoid gets my goat.

Live long and prosper,
