The price of immortality

Let me ask you: do you want to live forever? Everybody does. Just imagine: your ancestors will remember your name after thousands of years.
It's possible, but it'll cost ya. How much you're wondering? Look at this little list from Lapham's Quarterly to find out.

  8. hahah, I've seen that bit about naming a star. Of course, how many people would actually recognize that as its name is questionable. Can only be so many Muhammad's in the universe. ;)
