Last week, I had the chance to see the Bodies Exhibit in NYC at The South Street Seaport. It was quite an interesting place!
First thing, these are all real bodies. And there is nothing seperating you from these bodies. You are asked not to touch them, but you can literally look at them from a few mere inches away.
There are rooms dedicated to skeletal system, circulatory system, nervous system, respitory system, digestive system, and more. Organs are kept under glass, but there are so many different versions of the organs. There are cancerous organs that are compared to healthy organs. Something interesting (and rather uncoforting) was a penis that was covered in tumors. Ouch.
There is also a room dedicated to fetal development, complete with babies. There are even conjoined twins. For me, the room solidified my Pro-Life beliefs. I think it had an affect on everyone, regardless of their beliefs.
The Bodies Exhibit is a must for people interested in science and medicine. I am niether of those types of people, yet I found myself fascinated. At the end of the Exhibit, you were even allowed (and encouraged) to hold a human brain, liver, and lung. Very cool stuff!
If you are interested, go to The Official Site for more info.
I recommend it to all!

With only a few weeks left in the year, there is only one film I am interested in seeing. That film is Tron: Legacy.
But even if Tron is awesome, which looks like it will, it will not come close to THE BEST film of the year.
Toy Story 3.
Now, Toy Story 3 is not my favorite Pixar film. That would be Toy Story 2. But it is Number 3, right after the Incredibles. Who knows? It may even be better than the Incredibles, but I need to watch TS3 more to find out.
Toy Story 3 is a touching story that affect me because I too am heading off to college. I know what Andy is going through. And I have a favorite stuffed toy, named Dinosaur. And I will NEVER get rid of him after seeing Toy Story 3.
I cried after I saw Toy Story 3. All I have to say, is thank God for the clips during the credits, which made the movie much happier. Even though the ending is happy, in a way. But it's still sad.
Toy Story 3 is the Best Picture of 2010. Let's hope the Academy agrees.
