Of course, Brian hopes that after he dies, he awakens from cryonism
and can fuck 72 virtual virgins...

Seriously: I believe that there are things which are worth dying:
if I have to sacriifice my life in order to save the lifes of many
other (in a concrete way), then it is worth. Therefore, my fullest
respect to the lot of firemen and policemen risking their life every

On the other hand, I would not sacrifice my life for anything which
ends by "ism".

I suggest J.R. to add "ideas worth dying for" to his list of useless
hypothesis (or his useless list of hypothesis?:).
