comment Does body temperature affect human lifespan?
Another argument for cold-induced longevity is that I know a person who's been working at the ER for decades, and she says people who die in extreme circumstances, such as drowning in sub zero water, can be brought back after unbelievably long amounts of time with far less damage than when in normal temperatures. Indicating the temperature is slowing things down.

I don't have an exact definition at hand but humans and frogs are what I would call advanced. I might as well rephrase and say 'humans and frogs and such animals' instead of 'advanced'. The point would remain the same.

So advanced animals seem to be really capable of cooling.

And frogs are relatively advanced animals, there are those who can just freeze in the autumn and thaw back in the spring: youtube.com/watch?v=Fjr3A_kfspM

A boat sank close to Icelandic shores in march 1984, all died but one who managed to swim to land, took him five hours and the ocean was around 4C. So there are people who can tolerate unbelievable drops in body temperature and suffer no long term harm.

Epic, so u just put them in the fridge like food u want to last longer? How much longer do they live at 18c compared to 25c?

okey then, 32. Could even keep them a bit warmer in the beginning.

comment Why insects are so energy-efficient while flying?
According to the square-cube law the wingspan decreases with size but the mass decreases even more. Which means flying requires less push-up force per surface area for smaller animals.

Well it's just the square-cube law: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Square-cube_law.

comment Is the theory of evolution being disproved by bats?
Theory of evolution is not being disproven by anything and therefore it must not be being disproven by bats.
