    I saw a show where the froze a dead criminal, and cut him layer by layer with a lazer into slices as thin as paper and mapped his body with an MRI, or something like an MRI. I guess they made man-sandwiches once they were done.

    I once took a biology course during a university summer program for high school students. One field trip was to a local medical school, and we spent a few hours in the cadaver room - and we spent a couple of hours as a doctor explained the process in great detail.

    I was a profound experience to look inside a human body - a person who had once been alive.
