    I know a married couple that are going to freeze their heads after they die. The husband is 100% invested in this... his wife said she'll go along for the ride. Neither are religious so they believe when we die, lights out, worm food..

    I would not. I'm an agnostic. I don't know if there is something else. Doubt it, but I don't know..Also, what if they can bring you back. You are coming into a whole new world. All your loved ones would be dead. I'd hate it..

    In a heartbeat. You can always make new friends and if the future sucks, you can just off yourself. Just put me in the vat right next to Teddy Ballgame...

    No. One life is enough. People who want this are still immature like the little kids who when confronted the fact that death is part of life are afraid of it.

    Nah, by that point, all the people I care about will likely be gone..

    Don't particularly want to be this:

    I think it would be cool to see what life is like 100 or 1000 years in the future, but I wouldn't freeze my head or body to do it. Like you said, @teehee, everyone I love would be long dead by then and I wouldn't want to live in the future without them.

    Oops! I didn't see Odd Vark's quote. LOL. But teehee said the same thing. Either way, I agree with them both.

    no, once im dead I want to stay dead. it was my time and theres no reason to hang around any longer if my fate tells me its time to go.
    too much playing god here.. I can understand trying to keep a child alive and stuff because there is no greater loss, but if youre an adult just go. theres not enough room on this planet to keep everyone from dying.

    i wouldn't want to live if the people i love couldn't "come along for the ride"....it would be a very lonely existence. not worth the effort.

    Yes, only because I'm curious as to what it'll look like in the future. I'll settle for being downloaded into a computer.

    Sure why not? The other options are being thrown in a hole or burned up in fire and ceasing to exist forever.
