Superfund, cryogenically, Pathological gambling
New scientific terms also include cryonaut: "A person who is cryogenically preserved with a view to being revived in the distant future." There will, presumably, be a photo of Austin Powers alongside this entry in any future print editions. In Daily Shouts: "I helped the Democratic Party cover up the fact that the real Hillary Clinton has been cryogenically frozen for two years."
Superfund is a United States federal government program designed to fund the cleanup of sites contaminated with hazardous substances and pollutants. It was established by the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act of 1980 (CERCLA).
Cryonics (from Greek κρύος 'kryos-' meaning 'cold') is the low-temperature preservation (usually at -196°C) of people who cannot be sustained by contemporary medicine, with the hope that resuscitation and restoration to full health may be possible in the far future.Cryopreservation of humans is not reversible with present technology; cryonicists hope that medical advances will someday allow cryopreserved people to be revived. 人體冷凍技術（或人體冷藏學或人體冰凍法，英語：Cryonics）是一種試驗中的醫學技術，把人體或動物在極低溫（一般在攝氏零下196度以下 / 華氏零下320以下）的情況下深低溫保存，並希望可以在未來通過先進的醫療科技使他們解凍後復活及治療。 Pathological gambling is a common disorder that is associated with both social and family costs. The DSM-5 has re-classified the condition as an addictive disorder, with sufferers exhibiting many similarities to those who have substance addictions.
