Do you believe in cryonics? Apparently, FOX‘s X Factor guru, Simon Cowell does, as the star revealed that he plans to become to a human popsicle when he dies. Don’t believe us? Read on as he said so himself!
You read that correctly! The X Factor’s Simon Cowell recently revealed that he plans on being frozen when he kicks the bucket, in hopes that he can be thawed out at a later date. Simon Cowell told GQ Magazine: “It’s an insurance policy. If it doesn’t work, it doesn’t work. If it does work, I’ll be happy. If it’s possible, and I think it will be, why not have a second crack? Does that sound crazy? I think it’s a good idea” of his choice to be preserved by cryonics.
Cryonics is a procedure that uses icy preservation of humans who can no longer be sustained by contemporary medicine, with the hope that healing and resuscitation may be possible in the future, but there are no guarantees. Simon Cowell went on to tell GQ: “I have a feeling that if I don’t do it now. I could regret this in 300 years’ time.” You can pick up the September issue of GQ Magazine for the full article on Simon Cowell and his plan for cryonics.
