A tip on a fascinating documentary series....
The Human Body: Pushing the Limits

http://dsc.discovery.com/tv/human-body/human-body.html

It's from the Discovery Channel. Four parts (Strength, Vision, Sensation, Brainpower.) I thought it was wonderful, stayed up far too late last week watching all four in a row. Really amazing graphic work, and interesting science...as a dance person, I was(am) particularly interested. The series is being re-broadcast several times over the next three days...I highly recommend you try to catch (or record) it.

1. It does look cool.

I'm fascinated by all that stuff. Thanks for the heads up.

Also v. cool: Body Worlds. I presume you've seen it? The dancer poses were awesome.

3. Here are some links.


Real human bodies, infused with plastic and painstakingly preserved in lifelike poses. Or drawn and quartered. Or otherwise splayed apart so you can see exactly how they function. Freakin amazing.

Here's a vid from the media page: http://www.koerperwelten.de/Downloads/movies/BW_Chicago...

Here's his home page w lots more info: http://www.bodyworlds.com/en.html

I bet you would love it.

5. Creepy, if you ask me. Does everyone have to be peeled like a grape?
It was easier (oh those bulging eyeballs!) to just listen @ bedtime.
