That's still pumping the blood. That raises the question: does dracula have blood in his arteries and veins that doesn't get pumped, or is all the blood in his stomach?

The coldest temps I've experienced were right about 2°F.

It took a good 15 minutes for the color to return to my hands.

Just as a reference, in a biology class in college, we did a pain tolerance test. We stuck our hands in a cooler full of iced brine, temp was measured at 20 degrees. I held my hands in the water long enough that I passed the time limit for safety. I didn't like it, but it wasn't intolerable. The stream? It was intolerable. It felt like my nails were being pulled out by the roots with pliers.
That's effing COLD!

Shyt, I don't know the anatomy of a freaking vampire. I can kill a zombie, werewolf, and a giant spider, but I've never faced a vampire...

Once it freezes like that, I don't imagine it has to stay as cold to keep it frozen.

i have seen pictures of frozen streams and rivers. i know that standing or still water will freeze sooner than moving water. just curious as to how cold it would have to be, that moving water will freeze.

i am sure pretty damn cold!

I do know water needs a "seed", for example a calcium ion, to begin the freezing process, and the more pure a body of water is, the lower of a temperature it can be without freezing, excluding adding salt or another solution that lowers the freezing point.

Rewind to chemistry class, I remember insulating a beaker, melting ice in it until all the water was near freezing, then adding a large ice cube directly from the freezer. Then we stuck a thermometer about a 1/4 inch from the ice cube, and got temps in the upper twenties. The water was still liquid, but below the freezing point.

That's an interesting question, I think there are a lot of variables though, there are waterfalls in Utah that freeze every year, although it rarely gets below zero, but there isn't a lot of water to freeze either... I don't know... I know someone who probably would know but I don't know how to get a hold of him....

According to this, moving water freezes at -55 degrees.

Back to Lake Tahoe, is Lake Tahoe a meteor crater or does anyone happen to know it's origin?

Tahoe is not a crater. I think it was formed as the Earth's crust upthrust over itself. Plate tectonics. If you were to cut the crust from east to west and look at a cross section the western Sierra is like a long ramp up to the summit, and then drops off abruptly on the eastern face. Tahoe is in a large valley virtually on the summit where an enormous scarp sheared off and fell to the east leaving the Tahoe Basin.

That's my uneducated wild-ass guess anyhow.
