Cryonics is very unlikely to work

But if you're buried or cremated your odds of being revived are zero so even if the chance of cryonics working is only 1%, it's worth a punt surely?

Of course that logic only applies if it's free so the real question is which number is higher.

{cost of cryonics}

or

{prob of revival} x {benefit of being revived in a future where death is cured}

The latter is a very very small number times a very very large number so difficult to evaluate.

WBW has a try
