    a plastinated specimen of a human central and peripheral nervous system at the Body Worlds exhibit.

    It has been many years since I saw the exhibit but I still find it fascinating

    You need to stop hanging out on twink-porn sites.

    Wasn't there a bit of a controversy over Body Worlds, and how they obtained the cadavers they used? I seem to recall that there weren't adequate records of consent.

    I liked the exhibit of German - I think prison inmates - that donated their bodies. Most of these guys seemed to be smokers. Their lungs were all dark and damaged. They also had larger than normal units from what I remember. So time for dreaming.

    This show creeps me out. I had to close my eyes during the scene in Casino Royale. I can understand if it is done for science, for a higher purpose, but for entertainment, brrrr. I mean, those were real people.

    Body Works, a knockoff version, had questionably sourced cadavers. However, the original BodyWorlds exhibit can and has provided full documentation for all cadavers.

    I worked the exhibit when I lived in Edmonton.

    I saw this exhibit when it was in Toronto about two and a half years ago. I very much enjoyed it! My friend unfortunately did not, she almost passed out and screamed "YOU HAVE TO GET ME OUT OF HERE!", we were escorted by a security guard who ended up having to give her a cold drink to get her colour back. Guess it was too much for her icon_sad.gif
