Did you know that the blood vessels from your body could be removed and displayed, at least seemingly, intact? Donating your body for "scientific display purposes" sounds

Have you seen the same type of thing done with ant colonies? They pour molten aluminum down the holes and then excavate them. www.anthillart.com

I saw body works and it was amazing!

I plan on donating my body to science. Somebody did it so I could learn and I'm not using it anymore... So, thought that'd be good

I love to have any part of me displayed to the public.

Did you know that if you took all the blood vessels in your body and laid them end-to-end, you would die?

There's a process called plastination, turns you into an anatomical artwork. www.bodyworlds.com/en/plastination/idea_plastination.html

I think it's very cool. I wouldn't mind if my body were used that way after my death, or for any research purposes.

Same here and Body Works looked so interesting, but I never made it to one.

Take it. Take it all. Show whatever you want. The human body has so many stories to tell. And everyone is different.

This would be after your dead, so no worries.

It is pretty cool Praet already mentioned Body Worlds. Do a google image search for that and prepare to be amazed.

That's crazy! But it seems kinda mean, unless they know the ant hill is abandoned.

Only if you weren't done using them already. 😁

I have seen the 'Bodies' exhibit in several cities, and it is amazing.

I would only donate an organ for money or with a knife to my throat. Surgery scares me because I haven't ever had to deal with it.
