When a body meets a body ...

After attending the wedding of my dear friend Shelley in Chicago this weekend, I was lucky enough to go see the Body Worlds exhibit. Seeing as how I'm such a big fan of fictional viscera, I thought I ought to go see the real thing.

If you ever get a chance to see this thing, jump on it. Through the suitably creepy-sounding method of "plastination," cadavers are preservered and posed in all sorts of ways. Most interesting to me was the face woven of webs of veins. From just these little red veins you could see the map of the person's face.

It's a good thing I'm never going to die, or the whole thing might have freaked me out.
