I'll take the three bonus points, since my sense was clearly that most of
them, including the three rabbis (one of whom I think was the principal)
seemed very receptive.
I'm not sure you should subtract ten points from the audience. I never
remotely compared cryonics to organ donation. I presented it as
conservative medicine that transports a *patient* through time, a bit like
an ambulance transports a patient through space to a place better equipped
to deal with the problem.
