Intellectually endowed Robert Cornish, who earned a doctorate by the age of 22, put together the following formula: 1 recently deceased organism + 1 teeter totter + doses of epinephrine and anticoagulants = RESURRECTION!
In 1933 he tested this formula on heart attack, drowning and electrocution victims, with no success. He finally decided to test it on animals in lieu of humans and he was actually able to resurrect two dogs who were clinically put to death. He see sawed them back to life. Really.
