Bad luck, you're probably not, unless you thought of it prior to the
mid-1960s. You might be the first who wrote the idea down and posted
it on the web.
(I thought I was the first person to suggest neurosuspension of just
the brain and part of the spinal column, in a letter published in a
magazine back in 1971 [I think, don't have my records with me], but
apparently a cryonicist came up with it a few years earlier--and then
perished, unsuspended, in a sailing accident.)
