    Link: Goldfish + Liquid Nitrogen = Modern Day Miracle? - A goldfish is frozen in liquid nitrogen, only to be `magically` brought back to life!

    Does that really count though? It wasn`t even frozen for a whole minute. Leave it frozen for an hour, then try it and see what happens.

    I wonder how long he lives after. I bet he doesn`t make it much longer. That can`t be good for its gills.

    I wonder how long he lives after.

    The fish were bought as food for a turtle, so they weren`t going to live very long anyway.

    I`m thinking that the conditions could result in the Leidenfrost effect and that the immersion is short enough for the Leidenfrost effect to explain it. If that`s the case, then the fish wasn`t frozen at all.

    yeah that probably didnt hurt at all.

    If it is explained by the Leidenfrost effect, then it wouldn`t have hurt. You can stick your hand in boiling lead without any pain or injury under some circumstances - the Leidenfrost effect is pretty potent. Don`t try it at home, though!

    Angilion, that makes me feel a little better that the fish was supposed to be food anyway. However, the fish clearly came out of the nitrogen bath as a frozen fishsickle. You can see the ice on it. I`m almost positive that the Leidenfrost effect would have been negated by that length of time of submersion.

    My neighbour used to freeze her gold fish when she went away on vacation. Creepy.
