Comment of the Week
“Just the other day I was thinking about frozen animals “coming back to life”. I once carried in firewood for the wood stove in the winter with two wasps encased in ice on one or two pieces. I had the fire going after and was on the computer, which was next to the stove, when I felt something on my arm. It was one of the wasps. Then after I got rid of it, I saw the other one crawling around, which I got rid of too (they went from cold to really, really warm). Prior to that experience I was not aware that wasps had the ability to be cryogenically preserved.”
