The theoretical device you are looking for is a "stasis box".... Something that effectively freezes time.....

The difference between prayer and masturbation - is when a guy is through masturbating - he has something to show for his efforts.

And for the simple fact the pigs make decent research animals for this stage of development of this tech at a much lower cost and with fewer ethical issues.

There are a few animals that you can manage this with but they're all relatively simple. The most complex one I've heard of is the common North American Wood Frog, which can freeze solid enough to be used as a hockey puck and thaws out and walks off come spring.

Well, it's not that complex an animal, but that is pretty damned cool, nonetheless! Not sure I'd use it for a hockey puck, though.

I'm comparing it to tardigrades and brine shrimp. Amphibians are pretty complicated.

You're right, they make crappy hockey pucks. Aside from the irregular shape they shatter too easily.

Have you not watched the film "Demolition man" Confused

I feel so much, and yet I feel nothing.
I am a rock, I am the sky, the birds and the trees and everything beyond.
I am the wind, in the fields in which I roar. I am the water, in which I drown.

Cryosleep would allow for space travel as well as have medical advantages such as freezing terminally ill people till we find a cure.


For those that don't know cryosleep is basically a science fiction thing where they chuck you in a tube and freeze you for a hundred years or so.



Yea I know, people have rights and shit. BUT if we cared about their rights we wouldn't be fucking killing them. The right to not fucking die is kinda a biggy.
Besides, let's not pretend ALL human life is sacred, that's fucking bullshit.
If we can use these people to potentially save lives as well as explore out universe why the fuck don't we?

Because it violates the Eighth Amendment, you fucker. Talk with the Chinese or Singapore governemnts about this next time they want to snuff a fellow Kiwi for muleing drugs into their country.
