Ok. When I say "seriously considering" I mean not just thinking it would be
a cool experiment; rather more like "people within one or two degrees of
separation from me have had it done are are still alive to talk to me about
it before I employ this method of life extension"  I want ro meet in a cafe
to discuss over a nice lunch, not bedside in a facility.  I doubt those
monkeys "stayed alive" in the highest of monkey-style. :)
