+ - suspended animation trials to begin. future here I come!->

Budgreen writes: I wonder if this can put to rest the whole life after death debate?

The technique involves replacing all of a patient's blood with a cold saline solution, which rapidly cools the body and stops almost all cellular activity. "If a patient comes to us two hours after dying you can't bring them back to life. But if they're dying and you suspend them, you have a chance to bring them back after their structural problems have been fixed," says surgeonPeter Rheeat the University of Arizona in Tucson, who helped develop the technique.

you consent to being watched for advertising to use a free service.

you do not consent to be monitored even more broadly just in case they need all your info to use in some possible future crime, or to track your political views, or to..... insert any number of nefarious purposes, but it's secret so it's ok.

NY law prevents lists of lawful gun owners from being public record to protect their safety. the paper would have had to place a request for information on every seperate name on that list to be in compliance with the law, the only people who can see the full list are the DA and whomever does the licensing.

as americans, it is our civic duty to go out and add as much noise to this useless illegal app as possible. most states (NY included) it is illegal to maintain a list of lawful gun owners. we all need to download this and tag as many places as possible, churches, schools, police stations, whole streets. the more noise the better.

I wish I had mod points. Finally someone who followed it close enough to understand whats going on.. they have browser info.. he went here and downloaded this onto the encrypted drive etc.. it's assumed to be CP but they can't prove it without decryption, barely enough to convict unless he gives them the evidence they need, I don't agree with the alleged actions but I agree with his rights to not incriminate himself.

I have 2 750VA ups's that stopped charging their batteries. (the actual charger section died and wasn't worth it to fix) they run on 24v.. my truck has 2 12v batteries.. so i disconnect and wire them in series and one will power my laptop, phone and tv for the better part of 8hrs before it shuts down, and i reconnect the batteries, start the truck and let it charge.
