“You’re not dead til you’re warm and dead.”

Duluth got a mention in this 2010 Ted Talk by cell biologist Mark Roth: Suspended Animation is in our Grasp

More specifically he mentions the miraculous case of Janice Goodger

There was a 65-year-old woman in Duluth, Minnesota last year that was found frozen and without a pulse in her front yard one morning in the winter, and they brought her back to life. The next day, she was doing so well, they wanted to run tests on her. She got cranky and just went home.

Better than only being known for the fecal transplant thing. No butts about it — fecal transplants work for some

In a related note, UMD's Biology Department is home to a preeminent researcher in the field of mammalian hibernation.

While the medical maxim is true, frozen cellular tissue crystalizes, and bursts when thawed. Bad for brains.

While ice fishing as a kid, I noticed fish who were frozen solid after caught and sitting on the surface of the ice, could also thaw out and come back to life.

This is, of course, how zombies (and zombie fish) came to be.

Frozen fish can not come back to life.

Lojasmo, that's what they said, all right. Before the fish became reanimated zombies, that is.
