it becomes your top-quality marginal charitable dollar

No, not charitable. (I said "for mostly selfish reasons" and " I took the money from my ice cream budget, not my altruistic one.") It's a pampering budget, for things I want for myself but can skip buying now without any fuss, like saving for retirement and tasty food and museum visits and socks with no holes and trips to see friends. My top-quality charitable dollar is still for malaria nets.

Oh. I missed that you considered cryonics promotion selfish more than charitable. My fault.
