It's that last link to GQ that quotes the idea in my subject line... Hugh Hefner preferred blondes on each arm to cryonics.

quote
Aging, of course, isn't a disease, though you can't convince the Alcorians. In Newport Beach, one lecturer ran through all the usual counterarguments to extending life indefinitely. Apparently, the Colonel Blimps among us feel that aging is good "because it gives life its meaning." This occasioned much derisive laughter in the room, which mystified me. Aging does give life some of its meaning, if you're lucky. Those changes in our bodies—the masteries that are acquired, the capacities that dissipate—and the people we lose form the basis of wisdom. They provide a sense of consequence and context. I feel pretty comfortable characterizing as sad, for example, that a man as old as Hugh Hefner still seems to aspire to nothing higher than dating 24-year-old twins. Seven and a half decades is an awfully long time not to grow up. The cryonicists are simply one extreme within a cultural moment that has vilified aging to the point where the injection of a neurotoxin to erase wrinkles and halt facial expression is completely acceptable.
