As I said, no amount of reason is sufficient to handle someone with no
reason. "Mr PooPoo" appears to lack any redeeming characteristic; that
David Cosenza, alone, respects PooPoo's dignity as a correspondent is a
remarkable demonstration of David's strength of character. The rest of
us can surely only look on David's example and wonder.

But enough of this - let's get back to some kind of signal and leave the
noise off the list for a while. I was wondering whether any of the
suspension providers have any sort of reciprocal arrangement with
insurers? If an insurer was willing to present cryonics as a tick-box
option on a life insurance policy (notwithstanding the eventual need to
fill out the rest of the paperwork) I imagine that this might catch
people in a receptive mood for the idea - people who are actively
considering their own mortality and making arrangements for regular
monthly payments in order to prepare for it. Has any provider considered
or implemented such an arrangement?
