The candidate for QS should know that QS and indeed any
form of violent death is highly risky. Quantum immortality
makes hell possible. Hell = a very big pain during a very
long time.

QTI justifies a "death" as smooth as possible. It is natural
to think that, in a society where Quantum (or comp) immortality
will be believed by the general public (if ever), euthanasia
will be the rule (after all, [cf Russell Standish]).

People will realise that torture, crime (etc.) are much more
frightening and grave (if that is possible) for it could never

Shakespeare's Hamlet decided not to kill himself when he
realises that he could awake himself in a more frightfull
nightmare. He concludes:
"conscience makes us coward"

Generally, we fear death. With evidences for immortality, we will fear
death much more ... I think.

May be the winner, in the long run, will be the one who succeed to die,
like in some Hindouist of Boudhist school of thinking.

I would be glad to be wrong, and I apologize for these rather *black
