Here's a 40 minute video from the Alcor Conference in 2006 giving a nice, straight-to-the-point overview of the process (and current state-of-the-art) of cryopreservation. It also explains the reasons why cryonics is thought to be a reasonable means of reaching the far future.

The Cat in the Hat On Aging

I found this Seussian poem on the Internet but can't attribute it. Oh well, Happy 2015!

I cannot see
I cannot pee
I cannot chew
I cannot screw
Oh my god, what can I do?
My memory shrinks
My hearing stinks
No sense of smell
I look like hell
My mood is bad - can you tell?
My body's drooping
Have trouble pooping
The Gold Years
have come at last
The Golden Years
can kiss my ass
