    Default Would u have your dead body cryogenically frozen to someday be resurrected?

    I personally think this is bullshit. But lets suppose you somehow knew it would work and could trust the creepy cryogenics companies; that money was no object; and that if you died in old age youd be revived in a future where they can reverse aging.

    Ill say yes. Curiosity. It would be like a means of time travel to see the future.

    If I had oodles and oodles of cash, why not? Sure we may have no idea how to fix anything now, but maybe some day . . .

    Maybe. I had a friend get a vasectomy and he froze his sperm. Maybe I will just freeze some sperm so my DNA could travel to the future (via a more direct route than by brat) but my body and soul could rest in peace without worrying about being in some frozen purgatory.

    Probably not. It would be like culture shock times a trillion. I'm more likely to end up rotting in an abandoned carport in Mississippi.

    Absolutely.
    "We grow up thinking that beliefs are something to be proud of, but they're really nothing but opinions one refuses to reconsider. Beliefs are easy. The stronger your beliefs are, the less open you are to growth and wisdom, because "strength of belief" is only the intensity with which you resist questioning yourself. As soon as you are proud of a belief, as soon as you think it adds something to who you are, then you've made it a part of your ego."

    Hopefully it doesn't have to come to this, I rather find immortality rather than resurrection. Of course if it's death or this, i would choose the latter.

    Frozen sperm only last for about 2 years in cryo.

    Fortunately, since your friend chose vasectomoy over castration, he can still have viable sperm extracted from his cajones.

    Eggs can be cryo-preserved for a looong time because they are (1) much larger than sperm, and (2) have a much thicker cell membrane and can thus withstand super cold conditions better and longer.

    I'm a neuter and I love it! I've saved so much on condom purchases I know the procedure has paid for itself! Not to mention all the college tuition and bail money it saved me.

    Nope, I'd rather just die. Thank you very much.
