I thought I already knew all this, but this post has made me realize that I've still, deep down, been thinking as you describe - that the universe can't be *that* unfair, and that the future isn't *really* at risk. I guess the world seems like a bit scarier of a place now, but I'm sure I'll go back to being distracted by day-to-day life in short order ;).

As for cryonics, I'm a little interested, but right now I have too many doubts about it and not enough spare money to go out and sign up immediately.
