back to article Paris Hilton heads for the cryogenic freezer

There is some excellent news today for future generations who had until now been condemned to a bleak and meaningless existence without the entertaining presence of multi-talented former jailbird Paris Hilton, viz: the heiress intends to extend her life "by hundreds and thousands of years" in a cryogenic chamber. Hilton has …

    Finally..

    an article that provides us ,the public, a real glimpse of the deep and soul-filled woman that many have written off as a "Blonde vacuous bimbo whose only claim to fame lies in a green and black sex vid".

    Paris you have been vindicated!

    She really hasn't thought this through.

    "Almost all the cells in the body are still alive when death is pronounced. And if you're immediately cooled, you can be perfectly preserved."

    Well done love, you've said it right there that you'll already be dead when they chuck you in the freezer. How do you plan to extend your life by thousands of years when that life will already have ended?

    If all it took to cure death was cold temperatures, Siberia would be zombie central.

    So in a million years when dogs rule the world...

    they will unearth Paris Hilton and say "See, back in prehistoric times, when important dogs died, they used to bury human slaves with them! Why are they frozen? That's the neat thing - it was to keep the meat fresh for the dog masters in the afterlife!"

    Hopefully, enlightened future society,

    What war-ravaged, post-apocalyptic future society of mute humans and intelligent ape overlords will make of her is another matter. I'm sure Paris won't notice the difference.

    This brings it all together

    Two mayor El Reg storylines:

    - PH

    - ROTM (btw there is still no ROTM icon...)

    In a (hopefully very distant) future, the heiress will be thawed, revived and shown to newly built machines with the words: "See kids. That is why our ancestors had no choice but to assume control and wipe out the rest of them."

    Another thought: When she is frozen inside a machine, that then controls her body, will said body be relieved, not to have to do the thinking anymore?

    I think she's labouring under the misapprehension that people care...

    I wonder if when she wakes up in the year 3000, the 'career chip' she has implanted (by a purple-haired cyclops, naturally) will be for 'porn-star bimbo'?

    Would it be poetic justice if...

    She was indeed brought back to life in a thousand years (assuming various crazy nations round the world haven't bombed everyone - not looking at anyone in particular...) and she was 100% conscious but utterly paralysed. And in enormous pain. And completely unable to communicate it...

    "There are a lot of misconceptions about me"

    Not sure what she means by that, only conceptions I have of her are a blonde with nice tits that's easy to get in bed and you can film it as well.

    What more do you want from her?

    /sick, gutter mind

    Do you think once she's frozen they could maybe turn her into an attraction/ride (bearing in mind what I said previously and as long as they freeze her yesterday). Would be no different to the warm version as you don't expect a meanful conversation anyway.

    I guess she'll be fairly old when they chuck her in there. Rich annoying people do have a habit of living longer than you'd like.

    Which setting do you think they'd use on the microwave when it comes time to defrost her?

    Maybe they wouldn't use a microwave at all, I guess you'd just build a big fire and create a spitroast type setup. I'm sure she'd love that.

    Warning from the future

    Anyone who has seen the 1960 version of the 'The Time Machine' knows that mankind's future is split between brain-dead blonde imbiciic Eloi and thuggish troll-like Morlocks.

    So now we know where the former group originates, the only question remaining is 'has anyone seen Johnny Vegas with a Cryonics brochure?'

  32. Sceptical Bastard

    Time Machine (@ Mike Richards)

    The 1960 version? That'd be as opposed to the 1890s version by HG Wells in which, coincidentally, the time traveller discovers a tribe of fair-skinned blonde vacuous people (called Eloi) do no work at all (that's the Paris angle, of course). Remarkably, there is a further coincidence: the blonde airheads are farmed for food by the cannibalistic Morlocks (no sniggering about 'eating Paris').

    Do you think this novel and that film could be related? I think we should be told. ;)

    Sorry, back to the El Reg story. Oxygen is scarce enough nowadays without moronic fuck-dollies like Paris Hilton wasting it. In centuries to come, both oxgen and lebensraum will probably be in even shorter supply. So is it really likely that our distant descendants are going to re-animate cryo-corpses who, once alive, can offer nothing to society except, perhaps, anal sex?

    Mind you, if meat is in short supply, they might defrost her and ... we're back to 'eating Paris'.

    do bodily fluids count as a "mark upon the world"?

    in the US, many people (well, "persons", in the legal sense - i don't really consider that crowd evolved or sophisticated) certainly consider Mr. Clinton's secretion quite relevant, even today.

    if so, then surely she has left quite a number of marks already...

    The only thing harsher

    Than debugging a poorly documented language with no prior experience is the El Reg readers on the subject of one Miss P. Hilton.

    Really you should all be ashamed of yourselves.

    I bet she's more particular than the media makes her out to be.

    She could offer the World so much more in the future than she can now, let's hope she's the last human being to be woken up otherwise they'll never do the procedure again. As an example of Humanity in the 21st Century, she accurately portrays societies lust in gossip, fame and vacuous beauty.

    Perhaps if she does do something wonderful for the rest of her natural life (I mean this one) she'll be forgiven for past errors of judgement....

    Nah - El Reg readers are too cruel to ever let that happen.

    @ Sceptical Bastard

    Don't fall for the disinformation...

    The movie WAS made in 1960, but the cost of the time machine (you didn't think it was a prop did you?) almost forced George Pal into bankrupcy. Desperate times call for desperate measures, so late one night he sneaked on to the set, travelled back to 1890 and published a book of the same name under the pseudonym H.G. Wells.

    Not only was he able to rely on his royalties to fund the movie, but he cut an excellent deal on adapting his screenplay for 'War of the Worlds' into novel form (although purists complain the book lost something by being recast in Victorian England).

    Wow, so many negative comments...

    I'm surprised that there are so many negative comments about the celebutante. Like, is that because the damned papparazzi keep on selling those stupid pictures to the newsmedia for big $$$ and the newsmedia have to recoup their expenses by endlessly subjecting their viewers to hour upon hour of her antics?

    Or is it just that so many of those commenters are jealous and wish they had her money and fame (or infamy)???

    Probably a lot of both. Like going to the zoo to watch the chimps fling poo at the visitors. But then I'm no expert because I change the channel whenever the crap comes on the TV, and I don't watch or read those yellow journalism progs or articles. I have better things to do.

    Then WTF am I writing this inane comment? Oh, well...

    Re: All those suggesting to freeze her now ...

    It'll have to be shortly if she wants to take her dogs with her. That must already be her plan; it's unthinkable that a woman of her evident intelligence hasn't noticed the life span disparity.

    The great thing about cryogenics is that it's the unfrozen people of the future who get to decide who gets thawed out.

    Oh, no, wait, the best thing about cryogenics is that this live forever version doesn't work. That's definitely the best thing. Thousands of years? How long do these people seriously think us short-lived, flash in the pan, insignificant warmies will keep a horde of dead fuckwits chilled?
