    FYI. I ran across http://www.visiblebody.com/", and thought I would share... It is pretty cool...

    Rhody... :approve:

    That's cool! Looks like a great gift idea, too.

    Lisa,

    Glad you approve.
    It could be useful for a whole lot of reasons. I haven't played with it extensively, so I can't say if it is really good or not. Maybe someone with some free time on their hands can, and report back. I am guessing you don't get "full functionality" until you subscribe though.

    Rhody... :wink:

    Andy,

    Glad I could direct your attention to something of value, that is what PF is known for.
    It was pure luck that I found it. Come to think of it, this happens quite often, at least to me. hehe...

    Rhody... :biggrin:

    Pretty cool, Rhody! When I want to visualize the internals of a human, I have to look back on the hogs and deer that I have slaughtered (or helped slaughter) over the last 50+ years. Pigs are pretty close analogues, actually.

    Turbo,

    So they need a follow on to this: Visible Body 3D Swine Anatomy...

    Perhaps, but I don't think many butchers are interested in healing the hogs they cut up. In my extended family, slaughtering hogs involved everybody! We made the whole process short and sweet so the meat was cooled, smoked, or made into sausage as quickly as possible. I remember the first time that I was "old enough" to be trusted to lug a wash-pan of blood to the kitchen for the women to boil down with barley, etc, to make blood sausage. Previously, I was allowed to take in pans of small and large intestines for the women-folk to clean and boil to make sausage-casings, but that was a no-brainer. Drop that pan, and you can pick up the intestines and take them to the kitchen. Drop a pan of fresh blood in the driveway, and prepare to suffer the wrath of your mother, your aunts, all your great-aunts... Tragedy! :cry:
