Man this series makes no fucking sense
Did they ever reveal how Captain America was thawed? Because I’m picturing a bunch of Shield agents with hair dryers and I don’t think that’s quite right.I don’t think they’d want to microwave him so hair dryer is really the only remaining option. That’s how I’d do it.badscienceshenanigansDo you have a sciency way to accomplish this task?
Well, let’s see.
To thaw a 1.5 metric ton colossal squid frozen in a block of ice (the only way the fishermen who trawled the thing in could bring it home before it went bad), scientists put it in a big vat of brine just above 0 Celsius/32F. That allowed the fresh water to melt while still keeping the squid as cold as possible. Essential, since for a giant corpse with tentacles, certain parts are bound to thaw days before others and could become quite rotten before the rest comes out of the ice block if you’re not careful.
HOWEVER Captain America was still alive, which complicates things. On the other hand, even supersoldiers are significantly smaller than this record-setting colossal squid. This helps thaw logistics somewhat.
Much like the squid, Captain America would have to be kept at a consistent temperature throughout his body in order to be thawed successfully. If his extremities were to thaw more than a minute or two before his heart and lungs were thawed and reactivated, the tissue wouldn’t have any oxygen and would quickly die. What a shame to bring back Steve Rogers only to have him be the poster boy for gangrene. Brain tissue becoming metabolically active before the cardiovascular system began functioning would be even more disastrous— possible permanent brain damage.
And the GH-325 project was born
To keep his temperature as equal as possible across his entire body, something like the squid brine or (more likely) an antifreeze solution would be used. Immerse the Capsicle in brine until the entire unit is within a degree or two of thawing* to begin Phase II.
*Note that due to presence of salts, fats, protein, etc, the freezing point of meat is actually 28-29F. Apologies to non-US readers, sadly I only work with American meat and don’t know the freezing point of corpses/beef in Sane Country Units. That being said, Steve Rogers is 100% American meat. Fahrenheit shall be considered the appropriate unit for this project.
At the thawing point, it’s important to consider life support functions. I don’t know how fast human tissue uses up oxygen at refrigerator-range temperatures, but I’m going to assume that the sooner you have oxygen circulating the better. A heart-lung machine would be needed to oxygenate and move the blood around for a while before the heart gets started back up.
Meanwhile, because Captain America’s last un-frozen moments were spent deep underwater, there may be decompression issues at play. Whatever gas bubbles may have been present in his tissue are currently frozen in place, but when he thaws they can move about and create embolisms —> the bends. Better put him in a hyperbaric chamber just in case.
Since Captain America regained consciousness in a recovery room rather than during the thaw process, it may be safe to assume that he was sedated and/or placed in a drug-induced coma during thaw.
So at this point we’ve got a giant bathtub of brine, a heart-lung machine, oxygen canisters, lots of drugs, plus all the necessary monitoring equipment all inside a hyperbaric chamber. After thawing the antifreeze bath could be replaced with gradually warming water or saline solution in order to bring Captain America back up to normal body temperature. So many machines! This is US medicine at its finest.
Forced warm air blowers (hairdryers) are needed after Captain America is fully thawed, organ systems are reactivated, and he is brought back to normal body temperature. At this point it becomes necessary to dry and style Captain America and put him in period-appropriate jammies to sleep it off in a vintage hospital room. If you think hearing the wrong baseball game tipped him off fast, you should see him wake up with bad hair.
THIS IS THE BEST POST IN THE HISTORY OF EVERYTHING.

Is it just me, or does it look like the teenagers are giving us old people the finger?
I keep being so confused when people claim that it’s somehow “self-aggrandizing” or “presumptuous” to label one’s sexual/romantic orientation, relationship style, sexual preferences, etc. Then I remember that some people think that everyone should be exactly the same and anyone who explicitly names a way in which they feel they deviate from some norm MUST think “too highly” of themselves. What a sad worldview. I love hearing about how people identify themselves and in which ways they think they differ from most others.
In order to become the supreme adult, you must perform the seven wonders:
- ✘ Public speaking
- ✘ Not being afraid of teenagers
- ✔ Calling the doctor yourself
- ✔ Taxes
- ✘ Arguing without crying
- ✘ Having a normal sleep pattern
- ✘ Having an answer to the question ‘what do you want to do with your life?’
A super girly and peppy blonde girl who wears bright pink dresses and skirts everyday is best friends with a quiet goth girl who of course sports all black clothing and big lace up boots. Someone jokes and yells to them “Hey look, a fairy and a vampire!” The blonde turns around and flashes a fanged grin and says “She’s human actually.”
This has been done before, I’m sure.
There an island in a pond on an island in a lake on an island in a lake!
Moose Boulder is the largest island in the largest lake on the largest island in the largest lake on the largest island in the largest lake in the world.
Nature can be quite the joker and give you a splitting headache!
Isle Royale is situated in the northwest of Lake Superior, the largest lake in the world. The island is 45 miles long and 9 miles wide with a total area of 206.73 square miles.
At this size, it’s the largest natural island in the lake and the third largest in the contiguous United States after Long Island and Padre Island.
On the island is Siskiwit Lake, which is the largest lake on Isle Royale at 4,150 acres in area.
No, it doesn’t stop there. Inside the lake are multiple islands, including Eagle Nest Island and Ryan Island as the noticeably largest ones.
On Ryan Island there is a pond that shows up during certain seasons. Inside the pond sits our last entry: Moose Boulder, which is itself an island when the pond is present.
Now you can go ahead and go grab some asprin!http://ift.tt/1rzHw6K
