While at work today I made the comment that I see no point in a funeral (for myself) and that I was hoping to have my body donated to science. At that point I became the "monster." One of the other women said that she was okay with science but was very highly against those scientists that "chopped up those poor Chinese guys." I wasn't sure what she meant, so I asked. She said she was talking about the Bodies Exhibition in the city. I said I didn't understand, they donated their bodies, and "it's not like they can feel anything."
She FREAKED!!! She completely lost her mind because "YOU DON'T KNOW THAT!" and "It's a disgusting display of the human body." She said that while I may have my own beliefs, she knows that they feel everything and they are not able to go to heaven because they are trapped in those chopped up bodies watching everyone walk past...

No, it has never bothered me and I find it absolutely fascinating. This is a regular exhibit at the Science and Industry Museum, in Chicago, and I've always enjoyed it from a scientific viewpoint. I too don't see the point of me having a funeral for my remains. I've asked my family to donate whatever parts are viable and cremate the rest. Spend the money on a party and celebrate my life. It would also be great if everybody wore white, instead of the dismal black.
