Subject: Question: What is the biggest thing revived to date?
References: <>

As an argument for discussion:

I like the comparison of cryonics with aviation.  One hundred
ago it was as 'absurd' to believe something as large as a
could actually lift off the ground and fly, as cryonics is today.
the biggest thing that could fly was a bird (The first tentative
powered flights by the Wright Brothers took part in 1903), now
it's a jumbo jet.

Now the biggest living thing, which can be successfully revived
is - what?  Anything much bigger than an embryo?  A nematode?
Should not the probable conclusion be, that in 100 years we will
be able to freeze and revive a human head? A body?

Add a few more decades for scientists to untangle the mess we are 
making with today's technology or the lack of it, and you cannot 
deny, that the possibility for revival exists even for us.
