    I also like how bodies are just left there as a marker.

    They way the guy in the cave died is freaky. They knew he was still alive but had to leave him because they had no way to thaw him? What a way to go. You would think they could push you off a cliff or something and get it over with.

    yea, that can't remove the bodies. Too risky/expensive.
