That's amazing. This is going to save a lot of lives.

A human-compatible antifreeze? Hell yeah that's amazing, even more lives will be saved if they can do that with a whole body. Triage medicine has always dreamed of being able to freeze people and pause time so their condition can be diagnosed carefully and equally careful solutions identified and prepared and in some cases executed before you warm the patient up and start time again.

Does that include A HUMAN BRAIN?!?

I do research for a lot of the organizations who facilitate donation and transplantation. Anything they can do to extend the "shelf life" of organs will help to reduce the waiting list and save lives.

One of the people in said industry told me that the moment the brain dies, it pretty much liquefies into goop. So transplanting it wouldn't be much better than dropping in a Jell-o brain mold, unfortunately.

Dear believers in cryogenics (FTFA):

For years, researchers have attempted to cool an organ below zero degrees without any success. "If ice forms, the ice crystals are hazardous to the tissue," said Bote Bruinsma, a research fellow at Massachusetts General Hospital and co-author of the study.

So giving money to have your body/head preserved is really a waste of time.

Live your life now, you're not going to get another chance.

I'm going to drink a big bunch of that and go sit outside in the cold all night to see if it really works.

You know me, evil eye
You know me, prepare to dine
You know me, the snakebite kiss
Devil's grip, the Iron Chef

I miss the Japanese version of the show with Chairman Kaga and all the bizarre ingredients.

I've seen plenty of preserved and ummm.. not yet preserved brain matter. It is possible just depends on if blood brain barrier has been broken.
