Re: That Little Bug - Unfrozen After 30 Years!

Interesting! And "moss piglet" is definitely the more appropriate name.

Re: That Little Bug - Unfrozen After 30 Years!

This is my theory on why this happens. I think it is part of a master plan, or evolution (whether it some kind of god, or just nature) that in case all hell breaks loose and the planet is frozen again like in the last ice age, that at least microscopic shit can survive when it thaws to continue on and start again. It has obviously happened before. However I may be way off base, but thats the way i feel.
My reasoning behind this started some odd years ago, when I had to make a bug collection in 8th grade, i knew i had to do this, so i started collecting bugs in the 7th grade. Instead of killing them with fingernail polish remover ( i think thats what it was?) I froze the bugs in the freezer after i stuck a pin through their asses and pinned them to a piece of foam. Fast forward to a year later, time to make my bug collection for science class. I retrieve my bugs from the freezer,a couple roaches, wasps, rhino beetles,lightning bugs, assorted bees and flies and a cicada , thaw them out for a couple days and to my horror they are ALL TRYING TO GET LOOSE FROM THE PINS every single fucking one of them. They had been frozen in a subzero freezer for over a year.LOL i was changed for life.

You made me look up the name's meaning. You were on the right track.

Tardigrada (meaning "slow stepper")

That would have been a amazing presentation, bring the board with 'dead' & pinned insects into the class while almost defrosted.
Guaranteed spectacle
