Interesting. Naked wrists are the exception out here;
at Extro3 more people had Alcor bracelets than had
wrist watches.

That beings up an interesting idea though: perhaps
Alcor's desire to protect its patients' privacy has
unwittingly influenced us to be less vocal about it
than we might otherwise? Here's a suggestion: let us
all update the pictures on our Web pages to include
the decorated wrist--which is a much more effective
symbol and clear statement than a mere paragraph and
a link, as the original author here makes clear.
It would be especially effective if the pseudo-
celebrities among us did it: Max, Eric, Minski, etc.

Anybody in exi-bay get a new digital camera for Nmas?
