Immortality Ho!

Shelly finished all her Alcor paperwork today! datan0de and I witnessed it, so it's all signed and notarized and ready to go. She should have her bracelet soon, and I'm getting started on my own paperwork soon as well.

We're thinking of having a party when Shelly gets her bracelet, and another when I get mine, because hey, two parties!

You know, I thought of the same thing, but had the courtesy to keep my freakin' mouth shut. I bow to your superior boldness! :-)

In all likelihood, however, immortality will make her more promiscuous! It stands to reason that with a life expectancy stretching into multiple millennia and beyond one is likely to pick up at least a couple more sex partners along the way.

There's an interesting angle for selling Alcor: "Immortality will get you laid!" on t-shirts or bumper stickers. They could also have an offshoot porn site with banner ads reading "Click here for horny immortal babes!!!" ;-)

"So what you are saying is that now Shelly is an 'Immortality Ho'?"

No, no, no! "Immortality Ho!" as in "Land Ho!" Shelly's an immorality ho. Big difference. :)

Yep. When you become an Alcor member, you get a bracelet and a necklace that has emergency instructions on it for paramedics or hospital workers, in case you get in a car wreck or get hit by a bus or something. Basically, it says "If this person is declared legally dead, take these measures and call Alcor." The measures include doing CPR while injecting large amounts of heparin (an anticoagulant) and cooling the body slowly--the idea being to preserve as much of the brain as possible until Alcor can get to you.
