Do you mean that "if this stuff actually works and we can bring people back
to 'life' then isn't that a big goal, that attracts attention and is
therefore worthwhile"?

or in other words....I've got a big end, how about you providing me with a
big means, which I will use to achieve my hopelessly overambitious and
over-stated goal.

I think that messing with this stuff would be fun until i realized that the
preliminary work that i need to provide my foundation is in its barest
infancy....or maybe you could point it out to me, Randy.

My reference to frogs was serious (really!)  Ken Storey at Carleton U.
(Ottawa) does work on frogs that can survive up to 40 rounds of freeze-thaw
in the lab. It works down to -15 degrees celsius, however the system can't
take liquid nitrogen temps.  frogs are not warm-blooded and have quite a
different physiology to me (or even you)...hence the reference to
warm-blooded terranic life forms.  Go and look up this stuff, it makes for
good reading but it is in its infancy.

i've had several serious and witty responses to this line...I didn't realize
that some in cyberland were that cranky...ie: poorly tempered.

never too late for a name change..speaking of names, your sig
(cryofan at brokersys.com)shows that you might have a slight interest in the
topic, Randy.  Comments  ???? heheheheh
