DailyDirt: Actually, It *Is* Soylent Green...

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

People eat a lot of weird things, but most folks frown upon cannibalism. Some forms of cannibalism are more socially acceptable than others. Here are just a few examples of people eating other people (or parts of them). By the way, StumbleUpon can also recommend some good Techdirt articles, too.

    Brain death is the only true death. Even if you put the brain in a new container, brain death is what to worry about. If you could transport all the contents of the brain into a machine, you may live longer.

    Eventually your brain will suffer from cell death, smoothing, rot, etc.

    Trying to live forever is a foolish man's ambition. Best case scenario might be right around 300 years. This also assumes you would want to live that long. Also that the machine your existence relies on is taken care of better then you took care of your body.

    Simple electrical short is all would it would take to whack your brain in a machine.
