  Corpse-Art Coming to Canada

The Ontario Science Centre in Toronto, Canada plays host to Dr. Gunther von Hagens' ghoullish exhibition "Body Worlds 2." Von Hagens uses human corpses in his work, preserving the cadavers through a technique called "plastination," most recently demonstrated in the movie House of Wax, starring Paris Hilton as herself. Ok, I made that last bit up.

Body Worlds 2 will feature over 200 partial and whole dead people, including 25 entire bodies. There's a corpse-factory in China that processes 100 bodies annually for our enjoyment. And by enjoyment, I mean dinner table.

But the real question is, are you going to go see the show?

I saw this show when it was in London (England) and it ranged from "scientific fascination" to "daaaaaamn". The science nerd in me loved the comparison models of healthy organ / diseased organ, but I could have done without the dead pregnant mother with equally dead visible baby.

In short: a definite must see but be sure to eat first.
