I went to see a concert yesterday and saw that the Body World exhibition was showing so I went in today to look at all the preserved plastinated dead bodies and organs
It was really cool to see all these fully preserved bodies displayed like a guy sitting holding a brain or some guy posed as if he was playing tennis so you can see all the muscle of course I kinda drew the line at the dead babies and foetus part .
I went up to the lung display with a healthy set of lungs and a blackened cancerous smokers lung and I noticed a clear plastic box with a hole on top and it was half filled with packs of cigarettes, apparently seeing the black lung makes a lot of people so disgusted /frightened that they immediately want to throw away their cigarettes.
Of course then I was looking at the dissected reproductive organs and while that was pretty interesting I'd say the most disgusting part for me was the deformed looking cancerous penis in the glass case I mean what a horrible way for a guy to die and now his junk is in a case for people to look at.
Have any else here seen this exhibition? What did you think? Would you go if it showed near you or do you think it would be to disgusting to look at preserved dead bodies and organs?
