So, they just opened an exhibit at a science museum in my city. What they do is take real bodies that people donated, preserve them and put them on display, I'm going to it next week, I think it just opened tonight. It looks freaky but cool.

Pictures of it from a online video:

When I think about this, I think about that 1950s movie Psycho where the guy performs Taxidermy on his mother. @___@

What do you think?

Is that considered art now?

You forgot to mention his multi-personality disorder and love of cross dressing. The handsome boy in Psycho, that is.

What better use of corpses, apart from the natural lawn fertilizer. I mean if I couldn't have my carcass shot off towards the sun for my cremation -- I would be more than delighted to be skinned and plastered in a very ideal body movement. I highly doubt many people are aware of the various swelling blood vessels, key muscles in usage, and the specific neurons which interprets the sensory receptives in the act of masturbation.

Nice! I think they had something like that in Seattle once. They cut the bodies in half so you could see the real insides... gross, but pretty cool if you can stomach that kind of thing. I don't think I'd be able to look at them for very long without getting very dizzy @_@

Lol, I guess so. You have to admit, though. That takes some serious skill.
