Fearful Symmetries

Witness a machine turn coffee into pointless ramblings...

Ruh ro, Raggy!

It looks as if we are one step closer to creating those dogs in Resident Evil. Scientists are now able to revive dogs that have been dead for hours.

US scientists have succeeded in reviving the dogs after three hours of clinical death, paving the way for trials on humans within years.

Pittsburgh's Safar Centre for Resuscitation Research has developed a technique in which subject's veins are drained of blood and filled with an ice-cold salt solution.

The animals are considered scientifically dead, as they stop breathing and have no heartbeat or brain activity.

But three hours later, their blood is replaced and the zombie dogs are brought back to life with an electric shock.

Of course they want to try this on people next with an eye towards saving the lives of our troops. I wonder what kind of memories a person would have upon waking, if they'd have any at all. Would they remember the moment of their death?
