saaytin, you are too awesome.
Really? Wow. In spite of the previous explanations of how this works, you really threw that out? Well, maybe I can help. Here goes. Repeat after me: paper or plastic? Good. Say it again. And again. Get used to it, because you`ll be saying that particular phrase many times every day for the rest of your life.
btw i wonder if they still could feel that, like we feel salt in an open wound <-- ewww xD
they`re quite delicious.
we are a cruel raceguess they gonna eat them too ;-(
All I kept thinking of is "Where`s the breading...let`s fry those suckers up." Frog legs are delicious.
YOU`RE NOT HELPING!
Made me uneasy
This is what I heard in my head while watching this, also.
I never want to eat frogs legs. Ever.
I suspect that this is the correct explanation. When the salt touches the damp tissue of the frog`s leg, it might dissolve a little into sodium ions and chlorine ions. As he says, an influx of sodium ions into a nerve triggers a nervous impulse - in fact, that`s pretty much what a nervous impulse is. No ATP energy is used until the axon is "reset", so dead tissue can twitch.
...Fried chicken always lures me back.
I was thinking in the line of salt dehydrating, possibly making the meat contract...
you might be right though. I`m not that into biology ^^
