I heard from a few people that if you put salt on a fly it will come back to life.
I think it probably works better if it recently died or so i heard.  hmm.gif

I tried the whole drown it and cover it with salt bit. Do you know how long it takes to drown a fly? Forever...it started twitching a bit after a while, but it didn't crawl around. I probably goofed up the whole thing.

  • If you want to know what it will be like when you die, just remember back to what it was like before you were born.

...you may have goofed up something - perhaps too long in the water (it only needs long enough till it stops moving).

...the whole point of it is - it's a party trick. As I said it doesn't really die, it just gets knocked out. Just like you can revive a person by mouth-2-mouth shortly after drowning (I wouldn't recommend mouth-2-mouth with a fly lol) the salt on the fly absorbs the water & revives it.

And I have done it at least 4 times in the past. There has been one time it didn't work - I may have really drowned it *hangs head in shame* - but they're pesky little things

"... there can be no certainty of the last Conclusion, without a certainty of all those Affirmations and Negations, on which it was grounded, and inferred. ... And therefore if a man should talk to me of ... Immateriall Substances; or of A free Subject; A free-will; or any Free, but free from being hindred by opposition, I should not say he were in an Errour, but that his words were without meaning; that is to say, Absurd. ..."[sic] Thomas Hobbes - Leviathan (1651)
