    BodyWorks!

    http://www.bodiestheexhibition.com/bodies.html

    My son and I went to see this a couple years ago when it was in LA - it is one of the more incredible things I've ever seen.

    These are real bodies, plastisized and posed to show natural motion. The usually have some diseased organs too....very dramatic.

    Check the list of cities, and go if they come your way - it is amazing!

    You could always come here and go with me to see it in NY, it's less than an hour away.

    Hmm... an exhibition of dissected cadavers as a romantic weekend getaway, complete with diseased organs...

    I can think of "bodies in motion" in a romantic way, I would just prefer living ones...

    The one that came to Minnesota was called "Gunther von Hagans' Body World: The Anatomical Exhibition of Real Human Bodies". My mom went to this one and was absolutely amazed and talked about it for weeks. If the one PDawg posted isn't coming near you, maybe this one will:

    Make sure you read up on it before deciding to go though. There was a huge controversy when it came to St. Paul.

    We had a very similar exhibit here in Melbourne recently and there was some negative publicity. From what I've heard it takes a very long time to do one of these bodies, something about replacing the fluid with plastic.

    Not my cup of tea but I'm sure it would be engrossing for some.

    Just because your sign off after you're shift is done, doesn't mean that it's over and put blinders on. You're a cop 24/7 wether you like it or not. If thats something you can't handle, you should find a new line of work!

    I went to this in Vegas. I dont know how i feel about it. Its very, very , very eerie. You walk in and feel weird. Seeing the babies is strange.
