Ahhh… the age old question. Does size matter?

In certain aspects of life, size does seem to be important. Take height for example. Statistics show that on average, being an inch taller is directly correlated to earning $1000 more per year. It is a cruel fact of life that a six foot man earns $5000 more per year than his five foot seven equivalent.

The neisseria gonorrhoeae bacterium can pull up to 100,000 times its weight. Are you in awe of polar bears, who thrive in harsh subarctic climes?

A controversial new procedure is currently being performed on animals, which brings them back from the dead. Crazy, right? The animal has no heartbeat, no brain activity and no blood coursing through its veins.

This state of affair lasts for hours or days on end. And yet, once scientist Peter Rhee warms the corpse back up and reinstates the blood flow, the animal springs back to life, oinking or mooing as per normal.
