For me, personally, Arabs are something I can’t look at and can’t stand

I still can’t believe that my father, the bank robber, is associated with Andy Warhol

These poems are the earliest post-apocalyptic narratives

Again they tried to dropkick the skull, this time in a deep hole far away from the house.

Cryopreservation UnitCryonics InstituteClinton Township, Michigan
This cryopreservation unit holds the bodies of Rhea and Elaine Ettinger, the mother and first wife of cryonics pioneer, Robert Ettinger. Robert, author of The Prospect of Immortality and Man into Superman is still alive.
The Cryonics Institute offers cryostasis (freezing) services for individuals and pets upon death. Cryostasis is practiced with the hope that lives will ultimately be extended through future developments in science, technology, and medicine. When, and if, these developments occur, Institute members hope to awake to an extended life in good health, free from disease or the aging process. Cryostasis must begin immediately upon legal death. A person or pet is infused with ice-preventive substances and quickly cooled to a temperature where physical decay virtually stops. The Cryonics Institute charges $28,000 for cryostasis if it is planned well in advance of legal death and $35,000 on shorter notice.
