ROFL @ Local Rebel!!!
Horizon - this is hardly a new concept. I just took a peek at the URL you posted, but I can still see that it's dated several years back. But even before then, some of the sci-fi greats have envisioned things along these lines (of course I can't think of anyone far back at the moment as luck would have it...lol)
Personally, I think with an already over-populated world, it's a bad idea to prevent everyone from dying. Death is as much a part of living (for all you non-immortals like me) as is being born. The whole "Circle of Life" thing.
Granted, some postulate that with the extended life-spans cryogenics could bring on, people would be less likely to have children. But I doubt that - with an always increasing life span, we've done the exact opposite. We breed more and more and more. We've know it was a problem many moons ago, yet there's still no solution in sight to curb it, or to provide a release valve.
Aside from the mojo problem, lol, I think freezing people, providing a longer life span, will only add pressure to the problems we have now.
I say let's find a solution to the larger problem, before we do something to make it even worse.
