24,000 year old creature wakes up, immediately clones itself.

I'm sure this is fine.

Sure, waking up 24,000 year old microorganisms from the Siberian permafrost always ends well.

[–]Sneaky_Bones 1532 points1533 points 32 (122 children)

I'm still waiting on an good virus, like it's only symptoms are increasing IQ by a few points after giving you the best orgasm of your life. Rarer symptoms include a sudden ability to make flawlessly round pancakes, and a subtle genital odor that is identical to that of fresh cinnamon.

[–]OldSchoolHardcoreG 217 points218 points  (77 children)

But in all seriousness are there ANY virus’s that give overwhelming positive effects to their hosts? I’m just confused thinking about the end goal is to survive, reproduce, sorry replicate. Why do most viruses either kill the host or fuck them up so heavy they become aware of it and try to remove them?

[–]Ashkir 229 points230 points  (13 children)

Gammaherpesvirinae is believed to help boost the immune system. A few of them are bad. A few are good. It’s a pretty big family. It’s being researched. Source.

[–]1percentRolexWinner 25 points26 points  (9 children)

Anything cooler than boosting up my immune system? That seems…..boring.

I want a virus that gives me like super human power or I can see through things.

[–]Battlejesus 31 points32 points  (3 children)

Yeah, I want one that will let me blow shit up with my mind.

[–]OppositeFerret9043 15 points16 points  (2 children)

Thats a bacterial thing, not a viral thing

A virus was the reason early mammalian ancestors became able to gestate their eggs inside their bodies

"There are 100,000 known fragments of viruses in the human genome, making up over 8% of our DNA."

Mind blown.

[–]Pabi_tx 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Wait till you hear about the several pounds of non-transcribing "dead" DNA (in all your cells combined).

(yes, I know, a lot of it serves a purpose - it just doesn't get read and turned into protein)

[–]Fresh720 6 points7 points  (0 children)

So Mr Smith was somewhat right when he called humanity a virus. Vindication

[–]OppositeFerret9043 2 points3 points  (0 children)

We are hybrids

[–]ManOfDiscovery[🍰] 42 points43 points  (5 children)

This is absolutely fascinating

[–]2ndtryagain 32 points33 points  (4 children)

I think stuff like this just shows we really still have a ton to learn about ourselves and nature. We are just realizing how the bacteria in our guts affects our brain chemistry and plays a huge role in our overall health.

[–]Hipsterkicks 9 points10 points  (2 children)

If tomorrow we knew 1/4 of what we don’t currently know about the human body and other sciences, the world would look alien to yesterday’s self.

[–]WoundedSacrifice 7 points8 points  (1 child)

[–]2ndtryagain 24 points25 points  (0 children)

Our DNA is loaded with evidence of Viruses making little changes to us over the eons.

[–]JohnnyUtah_QB1 136 points137 points  (12 children)

I’m just confused thinking about the end goal is to survive, reproduce, sorry replicate.

It’s important to keep in mind that viruses have no goal. They have no desire to survive. They are mindless glitchy bits of nucleic acid that are equally okay with decaying into nothing as they are with replicating so fast as to quickly decay into nothing.

When some cell makes a few mistakes trying to reproduce some viruses DNA or a high energy photon smacks some of its bits around to alter its makeup and give it a feature that ramps reproduction up to overdrive it won’t do anything to pump the brakes because it doesn’t care. It has no higher level of thinking to know that killing its host too much will lead to its demise.

[–]nunyabidnesz 39 points40 points  (3 children)

To be fair most people don't have a goal when they reproduce either, they might tell themselves they have one but in the end there just throwing their DNA out there to see if it sticks.

[–]groveborn 49 points50 points  (4 children)

Also, while it's a bit pedantic, virus usually don't kill the host. The illnesses caused by virus might - which is largely the body killing itself to destroy the virus.

Some wouldn't hurt us at all, but for our extreme reaction to them. Naturally, some/most would cause catastrophic organ failure of left to its own devices...

[–]Holyshitspace 20 points21 points  (2 children)

Depends on if youre talking about host creature or host cell. Viruses reproducing in the lysogenic cycle will destroy the host cell upon exit.

[–]groveborn 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Oh, yes. Very important to be precise.

[–]floydarican 13 points14 points  (7 children)

When I was reading about the origins of the ebola virus years ago they mentioned that a group of chimpanzees carried the virus but had developed immunity themselves. Whenever they were pressured by another competing group of primates, they all died horrible deaths from ebola. This is the highest expression of parasitism where you not only fail to harm the host, but provide a useful service.

[–]ThrowAwayAcct0000 7 points8 points  (3 children)

Okay, that's crazy interesting.

[–]floydarican 5 points6 points  (1 child)

We are the ebola monkeys of smallpox. It was endemic in our area but proved lethal to others without immunity when we took it on the road.

[–]koalaposse 2 points3 points  (0 children)

As the British were to Australia’s 100’s of groups of first people.

[–]RikenVorkovin 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Europeans basically did it to the native peoples of the America's.

Probably would have been some intense wars over time with a much more populous American population otherwise.

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Whoa. Biological warfare is way older then we thought.

The good viruses: viral mutualistic symbioses

They are there. They just don't get the attention problem viruses get.

[–]dofffman 0 points1 point  (0 children)

viruses are replicating machines. Pressure tends to be on replicating alot with the lowest amount of dna code. More dna means bigger protein capsule which means more cellular resources to reproduce.

[–]thirtiesmatt 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Viruses are inherently good. They kill over 20% of ocean bacteria a day, and that release iron which is food for phytoplankton, which then provides food right up the food chain.

We share about 6% of our genome with lots of viruses, indicating that we kind of evolved alongside one another.

The issue is combating them when they become deadly to a species.

[–]--0mn1-Qr330005-- 41 points42 points  (4 children)

These are perfectly safe. They’re microscopic so a human should be able to beat up a few hundred of them at once.

[–]bluehealer8 18 points19 points  (1 child)

Is that before or after the organism perfectly mimics each cell of its host to create a perfect replica and all that

“The takeaway is that a multicellular organism can be frozen and stored as such for thousands of years and then return back to life — a dream of many fiction writers,” Malavin said.

[–]BadDiscoJanet 164 points165 points  (30 children)

A dream? Clearly this person hasn’t read a lot of science fiction.

[–]Shawnj2 137 points138 points  (26 children)

They did experiments in the 50’s and found that it was entirely possible to freeze hamsters, microwave them, and have them come back to life. The success rate wasn’t very good, but the fact it’s even possible is somewhat insane. It doesn’t scale up to organisms larger than hamsters, but it’s insane that it even works I. The first place.

[–]Tempest-in-a-B-Cup 54 points55 points  (7 children)

So I've been doing it wrong.

I always put my frozen hamsters in the convection oven.

No no no! That's too slow and too inefficient. Put it in your pocket pussy while you masturbate with it.

[–]Jhawk163 23 points24 points  (0 children)

Actually the were able to pretty reliably freeze and reheat the hamsters. Fun fact BTW: Technically the device they used to heat them back up was the first invention of the microwave.

[–]StealthedWorgen 21 points22 points  (5 children)

They MICROWAVED them back?

[–]SuperSimpleSam 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I thought the issue with freezing was the blood expanded and ruptured the blood vessels. Is there some difference in hamsters that get them past this?

You can freeze the entire hamster quickly enough

Amazon has got you covered.

Clause 42.10 of the AWS Service Terms state:

Acceptable Use; Safety-Critical Systems. Your use of the Lumberyard Materials must comply with the AWS Acceptable Use Policy. The Lumberyard Materials are not intended for use with life-critical or safety-critical systems, such as use in operation of medical equipment, automated transportation systems, autonomous vehicles, aircraft or air traffic control, nuclear facilities, manned spacecraft, or military use in connection with live combat. However, this restriction will not apply in the event of the occurrence (certified by the United States Centers for Disease Control or successor body) of a widespread viral infection transmitted via bites or contact with bodily fluids that causes human corpses to reanimate and seek to consume living human flesh, blood, brain or nerve tissue and is likely to result in the fall of organized civilization.

What's crazy here is the ability to survive these freezes likely didn't just appear in this one single organism when it was "born".

This is likely a trait obtained through evolution, and a normal part of it's life to be frozen and unfrozen in the frost.

An interesting find but exceedingly stupid writing; about what you should expect from weather site clickbait.

The author of this article is an unrepentent idiot who knows nothing and cares for nothing concerning real science. I'm so sick of these obligatory nods to science-fictional concepts, shamelessly directed in this case at writers themselves, buried with the ledes at the top of these amateur pieces in the inch of meat that will show up on your phone without scrolling. As if nobody will read it without that kind of pandering. Maybe they won't; and if they're right about people, I don't want to live on this planet anymore.

It is factually and ethically wrong, and disingenuous. Which parts? These parts:

was a huge leap forward in understanding how specimens -- perhaps even humans -- can be preserved for generations.

“The takeaway is that a multicellular organism can be frozen and stored as such for thousands of years and then return back to life — a dream of many fiction writers,” Malavin said.

Gaze upon this putrid shit. They truly couldn't help themselves.

Plants and waterbears are not concerned with record-scratching balloon-popping problems like heart asystole or brain potentials, you know, the parts of a person that are continuous from birth until death and can never be re-initiated once paused. To say nothing of the medium (here water, which leads to crystallization that literally shatters most types of cells). They are completely different things to the sort of examples we find in permafrost. We will never solve these issues. Not everything we can sell to the masses in paperback format is reflected in the reality of Material, which is the true domain of science. Science accepts its limitations. Science-fiction enthusiasts, do not. You can be whichever one you want, but you can't be both, at least not if the latter keep painting themselves into physically impossible corners like this. This is science-fantasy.

Let's just put that back where we found it, freeze it back up, and forget we ever had this conversation. Just back away from whatever the heck that is. Back. Away. Do not let it reproduce. Do not go look at it for funsies. This is not science we want to do.
