Preserved frozen remains of woolly mammoths have been found in the northern parts of Siberia. However, the popular notion that these bodies were 'flash frozen' and perfectly preserved is a myth propagated by authors such as Immanuel Velikovsky. Preservation is a rare occurrence, essentially requiring the animal to have been buried rapidly in liquid or semi-solids such as silt, mud and icy water which then froze.
To date, thirty-nine preserved bodies have been found, but only four of them are complete. In most cases the flesh shows signs of decay before its freezing and later desiccation. Stories abound about frozen mammoth corpses that were still edible once defrosted, but the original sources indicate that the corpses were in fact terribly decayed, and the stench so unbearable that only the dogs accompanying the finders showed any interest in the flesh.

Thats no joke friend! It is not looking good at present. The sun is the coolest that we have ever seen, and much more of this will result in some serios problems. We may be praying for Global Warming very soon!
You also overlooked he fact that the spot was already there on the fourth in your haste to thump your chest
You don't get it do you. I'm not saying it wasn't there on the 4th on 5th, i'm saying that the way Zorgon posted his pics, it looked like the sunspot was gone the 7th, wich it wasn't.

During solar minimum, coronal holes are mainly found at the Sun's polar regions, but they can be located anywhere on the sun during solar maximum.
