I think, you forget an important point in this discussion:

What if the singularity comes before I die, rendering the
money I spent on cryonics useless?

This changes the risk/payoff matrix this way:

                         Not signed up Signed up
Singularity occures
before I die or
cryonics doesn't A A-C

Singularity comes A A-C+L
after I die and
cryonics works

So if you are optimistic enough, you don't sign up!

Best regards, Christian Szegedy
