Are you wearing your Other Bracelet?

Sure, you may think you're a hard-core ultra-committed transhumanist
because you're wearing your cryo bracelet, but do you have the Other

The one that says: "In The Event Of Singularity, Please Upload

No? Geeze, what a wimp. (Taunting voice.) "Johnny's afraid of the
future, Johnny's afraid of the future..."


Also, I think the cryonics sign-up sheets should have little checkboxes on the bottom that say:

Do you want to be reanimated as (check one): [] A biological human [] An upload [] A superintelligence


Actually, if you want to get technical about it, what the bracelet should say is: "Please upload and upgrade immediately, if it is clear and unambiguous (99%+) that I would come to that conclusion if I knew the facts."

And you don't need a bracelet; we'll just read it out of your neurons.

So... are you "wearing" your Other Bracelet?
