I suppose the same could be argued everytime you go to sleep.

Why sleep, just go about your normal day. But if you really want to travel into the future, just get on a plane and fly coast to coast, you'll pick up a few seconds if you do it every day for a few years.

When I was "put under" for surgery that lasted a couple hours and then woke, the last thoughts I remember were the last thoughts I had before the anesthesia took full effect.

isn't that whats happened with walt disney? or is that an urban myth?

surely if the freezing process is done well, you don't have to be dead when they freeze you and therefore they can unfreeze you in 500 years and they won't need advances in medicine to help you.

This is way different form my concept of a "time machine" in a "real" time machine I would be able to travel BACK to where I started. We are all riding the roller coaster we call time into the future, that is not time travel, it is inevitable.

Let me try to say what Integral said (no offense Int.) in my own words:

That is not time travel at all. The same time passes - it is simply preservation.

If only the bag of peas in my freezer could talk, or negotiate a book deal with a publisher...
