    I saw the one in Durham. It was interesting. People are made of steak, it seems. I highly recommend it.

    BWAH!

    I went with my friend Augustus once, and when we left, I remember chortling to him, "Boy, that was fun Gus!"
    Damn you, beat me to it.

    Still, it reminds me of the utilitarian's motto "WWMD?": What Would Mill Do?

    There is a similar exhibition on in Sydney at present.

    Last night there was a TV show on with Dr Gunther Von Hagens and he took the skin off a body to show how muscles and tendons in the body work, allowing us to move.

    It was interesting, but I have to admit I lasted only about 30 minutes into it. There was something about seeing a body hanging there with no skin on it that made me feel a little ill.

    I saw one of these body things once at science and industry. It didn't gros me out at all, it mostly looked like really good plastic models of body parts rather than the actual body parts, the only bad part was when my mind drifted to the fact that some of the people were pretty young, or in other worse than normal situations for dying.

    For some reason I have advertisements for fruit and produce running through my mind--only the ripest tomatoes, fresh off the vine....

    I went to Body Worlds a couple of years ago. My boyfriend and I were both fascinated, but one of our friends walked out halfway through the exhibit.

    I also recommend the mutter museum in Philadelphia. I enjoyed it mostly for the same reasons, but it has more of a focus on oddities and medical history.

    Oh, yes. The Mutter Museum is on my short list of pilgrimage sites.
