(Newser) – Simon Cowell thinks future generations will need his snark, the Daily Mail reports. While dining with British PM Gordon Brown recently, the American Idol judge said he intends to have his body frozen after death. “Science is bound to work out a way of bringing us back,” he reasoned. Asked if he was serious, Cowell, 49, replied, “Completely. I’d be doing the nation a service.”

But Cowell couldn’t convince Brown cryogenics was right for him. “There may be a public campaign to stop me!” the prime minister said.
