Beam me up Scotty!

Back a few weeks ago I posted my Prime Directive/living will. At the end I said if they ever perfected that whole freezing thing I wanted to be in on it. Well, apparentely somebody was listing.
Scientist develop 'hibernation on demand'
"Technique could be used in hospitals to reduce fevers or buy time for organ transplants, researchers say.
A research team led by Mark Roth, a cell biologist at Seattle's Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, has found a way to put mice into hibernation for six hours — and the technique could conceivabley be applied to human patients as well."

Granted I was hoping for a bit more than six hours, but hey you gotta start somewhere. I figure by the time I'm 65 or so, they should have this darn near perfected. Look out great-great grandkids, Granny Wanda is coming to visit. I sure hope we're in the Star Trek business for real by then!
