other cause I can think of.

### I wouldn't be so sanguine about death risk. If you look at the frequency
of sudden cardiac death, subarachnoid bleed, fatal stroke, fatal but not
brain-destroying accidents, homicide (usually not a shot to the head), not
to mention subacute conditions (cancer), it looks like even the healthiest
of us are walking on thin ice.

I am now waiting for my life-insurance policy for the purposes of a cryonics
contract to be approved. As Germans say "Sicher ist sicher", and 89$ a year
+ Alcor membership fees is not much for a little peace of mind.
