Was Simon serious? If so, the post-mortem procedure will set him back a pretty penny. To have one body stored in a vat of liquid nitrogen can range from $30,000 to $174,000.

Simon says it's all worth it. "Medical science is bound to work out a way of bringing us back to life in the next century or so, and I want to be available when they do. I would be doing the nation an invaluable service."
