Has it been half an hour yet? :coffee:

She revelled in adventure and imagination.

Breaking boundaries and chasing fire.

In case anybody's interested it was "Kate's tits"

You have an MA? From a box of cornflakes or a special offer at a service station?

Post-suspension posting indicates that consciousness survives death. Consider it a message from the other side.

FWIW though I don't seem to get much traction around here on information theoretic death, you can use plastination on the brain rather than cryo vitrification.

http://io9.com/5943304/how-to-preserve-your-brain-by-turning-it-into-plastic

I don't know the long term stability of that process of chemopreservation. Coolants obviously are much more predictable on the multi-hundred year timeframes as we know chemical action is slowed dramatically.

Obviously this process is utterly irrelevant to religious and the after-life people because they don't see the matter of the brain as relevant to the "mind".
