I'm really very impressed with many of the intellectuals here on ATS. Scientists,
Biologists, Biochems and even students of the like.
However, I'm sort of challenging, definetly hoping for one of you to come up with
a solid explanation of the why, that is opposed to this question.
WHY IS IT POSSIBLE TO RESERECT A DEAD FLY.
This is not a joke.
The first thing you must be able to do of course is to aquire a fly WITH OUT
harming it. Try not to even damage the wings. so at the end of this thread I can make the claim
that" no flys were in any way hurt or disabled during the course of these experiments even though the fly died, this was only done with
the full knowledge of being able to bring the subject (the fly) back to it's life
as a fly". It's also a far better effect, if the fly goes on his merry way at the
Once you have a subject, you will need a jar with a lid. Any size will do I guess, but
the size of a baby food jar would be ideal. All this does require a certain amount of expertise, in not harming the fly while catching and getting it
into a jar full of water. That's right the jar must be filled with water. Well how else do you expect to kill the fly.
This is what you do catch a fly in your palm stick it under water in the sink. Oh
MY GOD FILL UP THE SINK FIRST! Once you have a fly unharmed in the water
take the jar and scoop up the fly filling the jar with water and cap the jar. This can be so much fun with coeds running around naked.
fly. keep the fly
under water by flipping the jar over and over until you are satisfied the fly is dead .
Dead from drowning. Usually 15 -20 minutes. Pour out the water and set fly in a
pitri dish (however you spell it) or on the counter in the kitchen.
Now cover up the fly with salt just enough to completly cover the fly. A little pile
on the fly to where you can no longer see the fly. NO, JUST COMMON TABLE SALT!
Just wait if you did not harm the fly, it will crawl out of the salt and fly away.
Any body explain this?
