The "Patient Care Trust" guarantees your reanimation??

For over $170,000 more than CI charges, Alcor has this trust which is rumored to have lost half its value in the stock market, but which purports to be a vehicle for "long-term care" for its patients.

Well, if it isn't for reanimation, what is it for? Liquid nitrogen? That amount of money can buy a really huge amount of gas!

So what is the rationale for the ridiculously high suspension fee Alcor now has? Somehow my thoughts lead me to insurance. Life insurance policies fund in the millions of dollars, sometimes in the hundreds of millions. Probably no one can get one with a face value of $28,000, anymore.

Therefore, why shouldn't Alcor match their fee to what life insurance can be obtained cheaply for? Or do they indeed guarantee you will be reanimated, due to the high fee you are paying for?

If they don't, considering that amount of money they will get upon your demise, you can simply consider that organization as, "passing gas".
