No Shockers Here, Either.

Which Hogwarts house will you be sorted into?

I guess the funny thing is that while I sorted Ravenclaw, I'm almost a triad: 16 points Ravenclaw, 12 points Hufflepuff, 10 points Gryffindor and only 6 points Slytherin. Considering my soft heart (and perhaps equally soft head :-P) I guess that's no surprise, either. XD

Ha! I got the same banner, except that my Ravenclaw and Hufflepuff points were tied with 12 each. No matter which of these sorting quizzes I take (and this one was more detailed than most), I end up a toss-up between Ravenclaw and Hufflepuff. You, on the other hand, are clearly meant for the House of the Eagle.

So you are a Ravenpuff! Or maybe a Huffleclaw? A Huffleravenpuffclaw? Oh sod it, you're fabulous whatever! ::g::

I guess geekiness is my dominant trait, so be grateful. :-D

I get sorted Gryf, Slyterin or Claw...depending on the quiz.....the only one they never mistake me for is a puff!!!

Have you tried this quiz yet? Maybe you'll sort Hufflepuff in this one! :-)

I sorted -

Gryffindor - 13
Ravenclaw - 11
Hufflepuff - 10
Slytherin - 9

Apparently I am wishy-washy, but understanding, unashamed, and proud of it, and not afraid to say that.

And of course you're in Ravenclaw, you're a scientist...

And so I ask - aren't these folks who are cryogenically 'preserving' themselves nuts? Aren't we mostly water? Won't most of the cells just explode when they freeze?

What you are is well balanced, and this is a good thing. :-)

As for the cryopreservation techniques, if I understand this correctly (and there's no reason to suppose I do as I've never looked into this), they run a cryoprotectant fluid through the remains, then flash freeze (so ice crystals, which are what cause the damage, cannot form). If it works like tissue culture, then a slow thaw will leave most cells intact. That said, the operative word two sentences back is 'remains'. The person is dead. They don't freeze a person just before they die (in most places that would be considered murder), they freeze them after death . . . presumably within a certain time post-decease. But they are still an ex-parrot. And as JKR is fond of pointing out, not amount of magic will bring back the dead. No amount of science either, as it turns out. So yeah, they're wasting their money. I don't know about nuts, perhaps just uninformed or refusing to see reason.

Thanks. The most extreme of these idiots have actually put their money into accounts for them, so that 100 years from now when they are "revived" they will be the wealthiest people in the world. Millions of dollars are tied up in this crap, earning money for banks and lawyers.

I actually watched an interview with a couple doing this who said, "Wouldn't it be nice to wake up and be the richest people in the world?"

I need to drink more.

No, like Lash you are well balanced, my dear! :-)
