    Now the we gotten back on the subject, I've had a theory, but I
haven't figured the details. I heard from a friend of mine of a surgical
procedure that freezes part  of the body so that the blood runs as a
thick fluid, very slowly, so they don't lose much blood.
With this procedure in mind, I was wondering if it would be possible to
freeze the bodies at the given temperature and use nitrous oxide, ether,
etc (some sort of anesthetic) to put them to sleep, using IVs and such to
provided the needed nutrients to the body.
   I'm not trained in any sort of medication or freezing processes, so I
just thought I'd ask.
