I am still in awe.
Sam and I went and saw Body World 3 last night.
I have to say, this was the most awesome thing I have experienced in a very, very long time.
I am a really visual person, so lots of questions I had about human bodies was answered for me.
Sam wondered if somehow I had skipped health, or anatomy, or wherever it was I was supposed to learn this stuff.
I was completely fascinated.
I was surprised at the location, and how small an appendix is.
I was equally as surprised at how large a liver is.
I saw where my gall bladder used to live.
And how tightly all the organs fit inside a body cavity.
I always imaged lungs looking like a mass of packing bubbles.
Nope. More like a really fine sponge.
You can't really see the alveoli.
The bodies were definitely either male or female, if you know what I mean...I would not take my kids.
If you catch my meaning there...
For those of you wondering about that.
If you get a chance to go--do it.
Wear comfortable shoes.
They don't let you bring in a purse, backpack, camera or anything, so leave that stuff in the car.
Plan on spending some time.
All in all we spent about 2 1/2 hours there, looking at organs, blood vessels, and full bodies.
Then we went to eat.
All those dried out muscles made me crave beef jerky.
