We just got back from a weekend in Chicago (Tom and I went to pick up Manda after she enjoyed a vacation with her aunts). We went to the Museum of Science and Industry and went through an interesting exhibit (you'll either be appalled or fascinated).
This exhibit shows real human bodies that have been "plastinized", or permeated with plastic. All of the people knew exactly what science their bodies were going to be used for.
This gave me a very real look at the wonder of the human body and how it works, as well as the damage that we can do to it. Yes, you do get to see the lungs of a smoker... Manda didn't make it all the way through - she hurried around and met us on the other end.
We're all home, safe and sound - getting ready for Greek tonight.
