Early bird missed the worm

Rip Van Winkle eat your heart out.
Or maybe the worms will,
"Russian worms frozen for nearly 42,000 years alive and well, scientists say"

Profound that they could "worm" their way out of the deep freeze. Just think about it-- they froze long before the existence of cell phones, or any phones for that matter, and the existence of Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn. I don't know if people used fishing poles and possibly worms for bait 42,000 years ago, but if so, these worms obviously escaped that fate. This frozen worms discovery is a good bump for cryonics.
"They are the oldest living animals currently on the planet, the Siberian Times reported." Maybe another worm will come along and wrest away that title.
