A couple of thoughts:

Wouldn't it be great if Alcor could be convinced to give this lady the deep
freeze treatment gratis? IMO she and her (apparently facile) memory are a
global treasure and an invaluable artifact of humanity. I would *love* to
be able to talk to her about her memories after we have both been thawed out
a decade or several hence.

Barring that, assuming Alcor is not willing to foot the bill (or that she is
not interested in being frozen), somebody get this lady to donate her body
to science. We have *got* to find out what's going on with her! No doubt
90 years of hard labor had something to do with it, but there's plenty of
folks who have had hard lives but who didn't come close to 125! I'll have
what she's having please.
