Things don't belong anywhere else.

August 13, 2003

From BoingBoing, we have a report about that baseball legend Ted Williams has been cryogenically frozen (major league comeback, 2076, anyone?). That's interesting, but what I really like is the ambiguity of this paragraph:

The operation was completed and Williams' head and body were preserved separately. The head is stored in a steel can filled with liquid nitrogen. It has been shaved, drilled with holes and accidentally cracked 10 times, the magazine said.

Do they mean his head or the tank? Presumably his head was shaved, but was it drilled with holes and accidentally crack 10 times? I guess so. Presumably the holes are to permit the liquid nitrogen in? Can any bio-chemists comment?
