A couple of small corrections or additions to Brian Wowk's #4492:

1. Brian says that all of the present cryonics patients are badly cut up
(fractured). We don't believe that is true of all Cryonics Institute
patients. Our sheep head work showed no fractures. (Estimating the overall
degree of damage will be an offshoot of ongoing work.)

2. A reason for funding whole-body, not often mentioned, involves the
possibility of perfection of reversible-on-demand suspended animation before
you die. If that is available, you want it. Of course, it may still be more
expensive than whole-body suspension was when you established your funding,
but it will almost certainly be more expensive than current neuro.
