    Get a CET, what ever scans I can of my brain and store them in a disk, and have them stored underneath my cryogenic chamber. Hopefully cryoprotectants will be effective enough to save my brain from the damage that is usually done in the process of freezing and warming.

    Absolutely not. I'm just going to croak and be done with it.
    Well, any functional organs are mandated to carry on without me in someone who can make better use of them.

    Agreed. Although I expect that most of my organs will have been to well used to be of any service after my death.

    Well, yeah... there's not much hope for my liver. And the lungs, of course, are the cause of my demise. Smoking and drinking aren't the best life choices, but I just love them so much... :redface:

    No, I don't. I don't believe in anything supernatural.

    But I totally believe in things that are natural :smile:.

    I really like Evo's idea of the Tibetan vulture funeral, once the innards are harvested.

    What's an "Afterlife Back Up Plan"?
    A plan in case afterlife fails?

    I don't know what it is, so I cannot answer.

    That sounds more like a cause of death, rather than an after the fact picnic. :yuck:

    Good statement rootX!

    Am I allowed to post images here?

    We need to get together to shoot some billiards before too long Danger. I'm afraid neither of us are likely to last all that long.

    Juct check the advanced options. There are tag options and you can also upload images.

    I like the idea, Stats. You have to come here for it, though; remember that I'm not allowed over the border. (Besides, it would be amusing for me to see you experience Alberta weather. :biggrin:)

    I'm not so bad in the cold. Will my fedora and trench coat be good enough?

    I've been meaning to get up there eventually. One of my favourite bands is out of BC and I have a few friends in Alaska. I was supposed to get up there for their wedding but I've been too poor for travel.

    If I do ever get up there I promise to find you and get schooled on the big felt table. :-)

    I plan to travel.

    Depends upon your tolerance. We were sitting out in our T-shirts having beers on the lawn yesterday, watching the last of the snow melt (but there's more coming). A friend told me several years ago about a time when his in-laws were visiting California. They found a nice deserted beach, went swimming, then were tanning. A couple came strolling up wearing parkas. The woman just looked down at the baskers and said, with a wry expression, "You're Canadian, aren't you?" When they asked how she could possibly know that, she said, "Who else would be out on the beach in this freezing weather?" It was at least 18°C. :rolleyes:
    Of course, it also depends upon when you're here. In winter, it can hit -45C. We tend to wear heavy coats in that weather.
    Anyhow, if you're ready for Alaska, you shouldn't have any trouble here.

    Nope, I'm an Aquarius and we don't believe in stuff like superstition.

    When you hit the quote button or the reply button you get a text box with several icons above it. If you don't get that you might want to check your settings under, I think, "My PF" and tell it to display advanced options when you are posting.
    The paper clip icon will allow you attachments to your post though they must be approved by a mentor before they will show up. Most of the Moderators are in the US so if it is late here there may not be someone on to approve it for a while.
    There's also an icon that looks like a small picture frame below the attachment icon. It will bring up a box that will ask for the url of your image and then will insert the tags and url for you. Its probably easier though to type the tags yourself.
    [ img ]imageurl.com[ /img ]
    Just take out the spaces.

    And on the matter of afterlife communication you may be able to start a thread here as long as you don't mind it not being taken very seriously, as you can see.
    There is also the Skepticism & Debunking forum. I have not looked in there for a while and am not sure just what is and is not acceptable any more. Topics that have been discussed to death (so to speak) are sometimes closed when they are posted again. Per the general guidelines you will definitely have to stay away from overly religious lines of discussion and I believe that S&D discussions must be scientific in nature preferably with acceptable sources for any claims made. So if you wish to discuss personal experiences it is probably not the place. If you are looking for information on scientific studies you may be able to find some already posted there.
