What if my cold storage laptop dies or gets stolen?  How do I spend my bitcoins?

Is the only way to make a fresh install using my paper wallet?

As long as I have two lines of four letter "words" backed up somewhere, I'll always have access to my bitcoins?

I think paper wallet would work better than a cold storage laptop.
Just don't throw your jacket in the washing machine without checking if there's a piece of paper inside!

That's also what I have.  From what I've read, you'd me a moron to not have a paper wallet backup WITH a cold storage laptop

I think I can get used to being my own bank.  Sure beats trusting Chaim Goldsteinberg with my money.

You can do an m-of-n paper wallet and split the pieces across multiple locations (e.g., two at home, one in a safety deposit box, one with Mom, one with a trusted friend, etc.).
