I think I have to disagree here. But notice that I didn't blame cryonicists
100% for the resulting debacle.

The topic of death is repulsive, the topic of paying money to people who
will freeze your heads is even more so. Then, lookit, the creeeeeeeeps.
Then, all "scientists" perpetuating the "hamburger->cow" thing. And of
course, Britney Spears is not signed up (though many erroneusly think
Disney was).

I think we have a problem, and the more so since there's no substantial
influx of fresh people into the movement. Kinda makes me think of the
aged semicrazed rocket scientists in the "Wings of Honneamise" anime.
