Wont world be a better place if air-bags save more lifes? Does only student dissection qualiffy as cadaver friendly reserch?
Get a grip. Mummy and daddy corps are tossed in a Volvo...lets cry!!! Result = safer cars, less dead people.
Uncle Joes corps is cut in pieces by a bunch of freshmen. Thats noble!!! Result = maybe a 10% of freshmen will eventually finnish medschool and how meny will not be nip/tuck MDs?
I vote for safer cars. Students can always go to coroners and practice there.Mummy
And I would be totally fine with my body being used as a crash test dummy because if it means I save 60 lives, it`s totally worth it.
It`s just the fact that I don`t want my skeleton being hung up in some classroom, or being used as shark-bait testing or something.
And myinsomnia, I`m definitely going to read that book before I make any decisions on where my body goes.
Ahh, the irony.
And what if you donated your body to medical research, and then ended up being another crash test dummy?
Ohh ho ho...
That`s the only gripe I can see anyone have with this issue. Unfortinately, there aren`t many vicious haters of irony around...
I`d totally be up for it.
I rather like that idea- sign me up for research!
No, rigor mortis wears off after some time, causing the body to go limp again. There`s a name for it, but I forgot what it was.
Both my grandfather and my great-grandmother donated their bodies to science.
Also, you CAN find out what the bodies are used for, if you ask. My grandpa`s body was dissected for medical research and we got his remains(very little) back. We burned the remains and had them scattered over the Gulf of Mexico by Army Fighter pilots as he wanted.
As for my g-grandma, she had her organs removed for research but was otherwise cremated.
A LOT of bodies donated to science can`t be used for medical research entirely because their organs are too messed up. My great-grandma had only a small amount of organs removed because a lot of other stuff was too frail.
And my grandpa was.. well, screwed up all over, but they used the organs as specimen concerning those diseases.
Big deal. If I crashed into a wall, I`m DEAD. I don`t give a poo.
LOL they keep showing us dead peole being mutilated LMFAO
