gravesite. While many people actually do buy plots of land, etc, just for that purpose, I'd be VERY suprised if people on this list are amongst their number. No-one here is overly interested in dying, when it comes down to it, and cryonics is about dying+hope.

I reply:

I just turned thirty, and although these kind's of issues are (I hope) not in momentary consideration for me, I have given it thought. If the advancing technologies of the future do not aide me in the prevention of death or extension of life, I will prepare not a gravesite, but a trust in the intellect of man. I will approach cryonics. With the awareness that I have in science I doubt I will have to deal with this choice, (if all goes well inbetween the natural lifespan) but will choose cronics, and will have a better chance then the guy who bought a plot in the dirt.
