Jon Hinek disappears from Cold Filter cryonics forum for good.

By Rick Potvin, P.A.L.M. Alcor-assigned-50K-insurance ex-member 1348. After a run of several years, Jon Hinek has disappeared as moderator of the Network54 forum I helped him start. He is officially ending the closest thing to a transparent and universally open cryonics discussion forum on the internet.

Cold Filter, based on my earlier Cryonics Cafe, was arguably the best formatted of all cryonics social media because it used an outline format. [Here it is]. For several reasons, I've thus reanimated Cryonics Cafe as Cryonics Cafeteria here in response. [Cryonics Cafeteria] I don't expect it to be used much, if at all but the idea behind is to provide an alternative open area where cryonics can be critiqued without rules like DeRivaz's on new Cryonet 2 at Yahoo, the only other cryonics discussion area at the moment aside from a few possible blogs which don't really have the facility to deal with ongoing discussion in a properly formatted forum.

I've been interested in cryonics for many years and continue to be interested in it as an element of the possibility of physical survival. Not being signed up, officially, is a definite problem of course. I continue to hope to be able to rectify that. In the meantime, keeping the idea alive the way I see it requires an free and transparent possibility of discussion if not a reality of such discussion. I think Cryonet Cafeteria represents an example and a possibility, then, rather than a reality-- just like my own non-membership and just like cryonics itself.

  1. hello, hinek, my old friend
    I've come to say goodbye again....

  2. Boost Your Nitric Oxide Levels With L-Arginine, Right? Wrong!

    You’ve probably heard about nitric oxide, the molecule that improves heart health, energy levels, and sexual performance.

    But here’s something you probably haven’t heard: The popular advice on how to increase nitric oxide is dead wrong!

    The most common advice is to take l-arginine to boost nitric oxide. But the fact is, it’s hard for your body to turn l-arginine into nitric oxide. Especially if you’re over 40.

    I’ll tell you more about this problem and how to solve it in a moment. But first, I’d like to ask you a few questions.

    Do you ever forget where you parked your car? Walk into a room and suddenly draw a blank as to why youre there? Forget someones name right after you meet them? Or worse, run into an old friend and stammer as you try to remember their name?

    Well, here's good news! Studies show that nitric oxide improves memory, slow response and confused thinking in three ways:

    1) it helps store memories as they are created;
    2) it helps retrieve memories later on; and
    3) it helps brain cells send and receive signals more quickly .

    Indeed, the brain boosting effects of nitric oxide have been proven in before-and-after MRIs of the brain.

    I’ll tell you more about those studies in a special video presentation. The presentation will give you all the details on how to test your own nitric oxide level. When I tried this simple test, I was shocked by the results. You just might be too.

    Please watch this video now.

    If you delay in watching this, you might forget or the video might be taken down and you'll have missed out. But spend a few minutes watching this now and you can see for yourself the difference nitric oxide can make in your life.
