    I'd agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.

    Re: Could humans hibernate?

    I'd be all for some form of selective, short-term hibernation. Like if my wife tells reminds me that we have to go to some function that I'm not wild about, I could quickly run upstairs, jump in bed and start hibernating. Probably get me out of a lot of stuff.

    Same way with work. Miss a deadline? Go into hibernation for a couple weeks until the heat blows over.

    You don't wake a hibernating guy.

    Well if cryogenics ever takes over you could potentially sleep through decades. Sweet deal.

    Charlton Heston tried that and ended up enslaved by a race of super intelligent monkeys. No thank you.

    Re: Could humans hibernate?

    I absolutely could. As long as the TV stays on and I can have brief periods of semi-arousal in which I put my face in a pizza and bucket of beer. And of course with the clone cone machine mounted to my face.

    you seem to like pizza on a different level than the average person.

    No one has mentioned the Buck Rogers bed yet? That thing was freaking awesome.

    Super intelligent? Hardly. They were living in adobe huts and riding horses around. Come on.
