Was the following study surprising to anyone?  If you are alive and have
blood circulation the brain is the last organ to be deprived.  Remember how
a human being can sleep in freezing temperatures while shivering?  It is
highly uncomfortable but they don't wake up brain dead.

Doug, do you know what they were looking for with this study? I thought this
territory was covered in great detail in the 1950s.   Sometimes I wonder
about what is going on out there.  Do they do studies without checking the
literature?  This is science?
