	I found a strip about cryonics in "The Dilbert Principle" by Scott Adams
(If you are not familiar with the comic strip Dilbert, Dilbert and Wally
are engineers, and their manager is clueless in general, and technically
ignorant in particular)

Manager: I just arranged to have my body cryogenically frozen before my
death. In a hundred years I'll be revived and cured. That way, future
generations will get the benefits of knowing me.

Wally: I hope you have a good warm coat.

Manager: Coat? Nobody said anything about needing a coat.

Wally: Obviously you need a coat. It's freezing in that cryogenic chamber.
You'd better wear long underwear too. Don't let them tell you otherwise.
Remember, the customer is always right!

Manager: [thinking, as he goes away, looking very determined] I want a
space heater in there too!

Dilbert: [to Wally] That wasn't nice.

Wally: I did it for future generations.  

BTW: Notice that Adams describes the manager's arrangement as being frozen
BEFORE his death! I wonder if many people believe that's the way cryonics
