Question. It's gonna be stupid so brace yourself.
Why the fuck don't we take a bunch of death row inmates and chuck 'em in freezers to develop cryosleep technology so we can freeze ourselves for extended periods of time.

Cryosleep would allow for space travel as well as have medical advantages such as freezing terminally ill people till we find a cure.


For those that don't know cryosleep is basically a science fiction thing where they chuck you in a tube and freeze you for a hundred years or so.



Yea I know, people have rights and shit. BUT if we cared about their rights we wouldn't be fucking killing them. The right to not fucking die is kinda a biggy.
Besides, let's not pretend ALL human life is sacred, that's fucking bullshit.
If we can use these people to potentially save lives as well as explore out universe why the fuck don't we?

If I had a terminal illness, I'd volunteer to die for science research.

But short answer, we're not even ready to perform legitimate animal trials, let alone line up human tests.

Long answer? We're so ass-backwards culturally and politically that we're still okay with state sanctioned murder. We probably won't have this science locked down until well after we can get our ethical shit straight, so it'll probably be a mute point by then.


Still, not a stupid question. Worded brashly sure, as we've come to expect from our resident Kiwi, but certainly not stupid.

Fundamental research ground work has already been done. We'd just have to start there and extend the research.

Ask for volunteers. Tell them there's no chance in hell they'll survive, but, hey, you never know.

Fuck you Girly Dodgy Jesus. I should know better than to follow links that you supply.

BTW, the trick would be to find a way to suspend life without freezing. Just because meat keeps in a freezer doesn't mean the cow will be having any more calves.

When meat freezes the water in the individual cells expand to the point that the cells rupture........

You might as well crawl into a microwave oven and turn it on.....

RE: Question. It's gonna be stupid so brace yourself.
There's also an ethical slippery slope there.
By making death row inmates a useful commodity, might there not be a temptation to create a greater supply of them?
Mightn't some jurors otherwise loathe to sentence someone to death be able to justify choosing it because it's for the greater good? Consider

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.

Well, way to ruin the fun.

Doesn't have to be freezing, I just mean any type of technology where we can store the body for long periods of time and wake it up decades or centuries later.

That is a good point though thanks.

That's a good point.
I mean prisoners being a commodity is basically why the US justice system is a complete fuckbag of fucked up retardation right now.


Maybe if the demand for death row inmates for these types of experiments was low so the supply was always way greater than supply there wouldn't be much incentive to increase supply.

Though I suppose it might be an issue if say a certain potential death row criminal met certain ideal criteria some research lab might be somewhat 'persuasive' towards some judges.
