    Pretty amazing what we can learn about animals...

    imagine we could freeze people like that... (not that i will want to be frozen... I cant see mysefl waking up in 100 years with all those i like dead and tons of new technology/virus that my body is not use to) Imagine we could do the same.

    Why go explore the moon and the space when earth have so much to be discover still ^^

    And yes, you just said that on TV, right after being unfrozen, those lil guys are all horny =P they need action to make the muscles go back to life, no?

    Too bad this will never work with humans- when cells freeze, the ice crystals rupture the cell membranes... you die. I still don`t understand how these frogs survive, but, needless to say, some of the public and a certain president of ours would never allow human experimentation :(

    Hey Feelgood2006 sorry we invented the internet and computer software. We are also sorry for inventing cell phones, and the nuclear bomb. If it wasn`t for US americans, IAB wouldnt be possible.

    Now tell me, what did your country invent?

    Now now children, let`s not fight.

    Feelgood: you let the side down. Just to let our American friends know, I`m from England and I didn`t know this about frogs. Not all English people give a poo about amphibian anatomy; not all Americans are fat.

    And Crz4mets2: the internet works off packet switching, yes? Now I don`t know exactly what that is, but I do know it`s the result of a collaboration between a Polish bloke and a British bloke. The nuclear bomb wasn`t solely an American effort; there were plenty of Central European, British, and (gasp!) Canadian scientists involved. Oppenheimer himself was of directly German descent, and he studied at a Cavendish, a branch of a certain British establishment called Cambridge University, perhaps you`ve heard of it? Cell phones are American, I`ll give you that, but if it weren`t for the British you`d be calling people and saying "Hola."

    I saw a video of the ambassador from Australia asking New Yorkers who we should attack next, and having them put a marker on a map. In all the cases, North and South Korea had been switched with Australia and New Zealand. Nobody seemed to notice, and put the little `attack symbol` on Australia.

    Americans are FAT, LAZY, and STUPID.

    The final nail in the coffin is how people respond to illegal immigrants `stealing our jobs`. You don`t park your car, get out, walk to the store, when suddenly two illegal immigrants knock you down and steal your job. They`re getting our jobs because they work more for less pay. Americans are whiny, take far too much for granted, and apparently believe the crap Fox News and Bush tell us.

    There`s a reason the British are now pulling troops out of Iraq- they`ve realized we can`t win. Bush has not. And then there`s that [email protected] `Patriot Act` because apparently it`s patriotic to give up all your basic rights. Fascist.

    "not all americans are fat!!! and some people cant help being fat!!"

    The only way to `not help being fat` is to have so little self-control that you don`t stop eating. If there were a medical reason, then there would be equal proportions of obesity in all countries.

    Catbarf-
    I saw that video as well and I found it to be utter bullcrap. The people were suffering from a disease called stupidity. It`s an infection all around the world and many are oblivious that they have it. But the point at hand is that not all Americans are stupid. Sure there are some but they probably interviewed TONS of people and they only showed the stupid ones. Would it be considered entertainment or funny to see a man point at a map and say, "Umm, that`s not South Korea." I think not. So they video taped and video taped until they thought they had landed on Stupidity Gold. Then they went back to their studio and edited it. But I think the point is not everyone here is stupid. There are stupid people in Ireland, The United States, China, Russia, Germany, Mexico, England, Australia, etc. EVERYWHERE.

    Oh and that`s pretty sweet about frogs even though I already knew it.

    Hey hey hey, I`ve only read the first page but there`s a bunch of `dumd europeans` `fat americans` crap.

    To America: We are very hygenic people thanks very much. We aren`t yellow toothed scruffy dressed idiots like american cartoons show us to be- were just normal people.

    To Europe: Not ALL americans are fat, yes there ARE more obese poeople in america than here- but we still have obese people.

    END RANT
