Perhaps, however this notion is still a truly *great* idea. The proletariate
tend to think in terms of sound bites and bumper stickers. The fact that
we cannot *now* revive embryos that are more than 4 or 5 divides old

thawed and live today." The bumper sticker will read: "Please
give to help cryopreservation of the innocent unborn." etc. spike
