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?
