The Most Bestest Thing Ever (Cadaver Category)

So, uh, DROP WHATEVER THE FUCK YOU'RE DOING at get your ass over to the Southstreet Seaport for Bodies: The Exhibition. You know what I'm talking about - you've been reading about it for, like, three years already. This German dude named Gunther Von Hagens found a way to replace all the water in your body with polymer, turning you a dry, plastic, poseable museum-piece. This show is a bunch of body donors (read=political prisoners) from China prepared by a medical school there. There's no way to tell you what it feels like to look into the plastinated face of a cadaver; to see through his ribcage; to see the entire vascular system separated out from the body and suspended in solution, INTACT.

GO. NOW. I'll wait for you to get back.
