Pretty big ramen fan, myself.

That's always a sign of love. Whenever you get into a relationship, always ask "Do you care enough about me to stab me in my sleep?"
  Thu. 8/20/09 2:31am Darren:

Nice and cool in Chicago. We had our pavement-licking last week.
  Thu. 8/20/09 2:32am Greg:

It depends where you are. Some doctors/hospitals/countries go by brain death, while others use heart death.
  Thu. 8/20/09 2:35am Indiana Jordan:

I would love to live forever, provided I wouldn't just degenerate forever.

The British guy? Is that Ray Kurzweil?
  Thu. 8/20/09 2:45am Megan:

Just tuned in. I want to be immortal for the first few decades of my lovely country/empire of TOCTWSBTPWLTTORS, and then I will advise the next couple of kings, then I would die.
  Thu. 8/20/09 2:48am Michael from Toronto:

Virginia Woolf's Orlando is literature's great immortal dude/lady!

Ted Williams is the new King Tut.
  Thu. 8/20/09 2:56am Indiana Jordan:

I heard a story on a certain NPR show about a company in the 50s or 60s that was cryogenically freezing people. They rented a warehouse or something, and the bodies would be sealed in individual canisters (like giant thermoses) for preservation. Unfortunately, the company ran out of money and had to cut corners. They ended up stuffing several bodies into one thermos, but re-opening the thing ruined the seal and the bodies defrosted and were lost. I don't remember if anyone went to jail or not. But it was a good story.

They sell DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid) at like GNC and your more health-orientated supermarkets (Whole foods & c.) in the hippy-vitamin aisle.

Humans are like appliances and cars. Built to fall apart so we have to buy new ones.

This one by De Beauvoir is fascinating, it explores a lot of the downsides of immortality
