You can sign up to have your head frozen when you die. The idea is
that at some point in the future, we may have the technology
to reanimate you, either physically or as software. If reaimated,
you could potentially live a very long time. It would
cost me about $240 annually . So should I sign up? I think it
comes down to:
- what are my chances of being revived?
- what would my quality of life be if revived?
- how long would I expect to live after being revived?
- what else could I do with $240/year?
I don't have a good way to estimate the first three. The fourth I
have a good understanding of, both in terms of the good it could do
in general  and how I could spend it on myself. I think if I did
sign up, it would need to come out of my self-spending budget; it's
almost certainly not cost competitive with international development
in maximizing happiness.
Does it make sense to sign up?
 $120 for a yearly
for life insurance. Life insurance costs would go up dramatically
as I got older, for example $460
if I signed up 30 years from now. So we have $600/year for a 55
year old me.
