I COULD ONLY FIND ONE

Daphnia magna (freshwater flea) -The daphnia has both sexual and asexual phases. In most environments, the population consists entirely of females that reproduce asexually.  Under adverse conditions, males are produced, and sexual reproduction begins. The result is the laying of resting or “winter” eggs, protected by a hardened coat called the ephippium . Factors that can trigger this are a lack of food, low oxygen supply, a high population density, or low temperatures

In order to buy more time to fix injuries, doctors will suspend gunshot victims in a suspended animation.

They call it emergency preservation and resuscitation.

What they do is replace all of a patient’s blood with a cold saline solution, which rapidly cools the body and stops almost all cellular activity.

The benefits of cooling, or induced hypothermia, have been known for decades. At normal body temperature – around 37 °C – cells need a regular oxygen supply to produce energy.

However, at lower temperatures, cells need less oxygen because all chemical reactions slow down.

This explains why people who fall into icy lakes can sometimes be revived more than half an hour after they have stopped breathing.

MORE WOW SCIENCE

How do you replace all of someone’s blood idgi

I know this sounds like science fiction, but it’s real

So they literally just drain the person’s blood out and replace it with a cold, saline solution. You should keep it mind a gun shot victim has already lost about 50% of their blood in the worst case scenario. 

They first tried it with a pig and it worked. They have yet to try it on a human person but will soon.

Like I said before more information here

If you don’t know how blood can be replaced, go donate plasma. It should give you a decent idea of how it works, plus you get paid.

robots who are really bad at math and when people are like “shouldnt you be good at math since you’re a computer” and the robot is just like “shouldnt you be an expert in biology since you’re made of cells”

I can’t wait till AI tech reaches the point of sass.
