Disease Proof

A Walk in the Body

Alright, I know this is interesting and fascinating—I really do—but, “Corpus” gives me the creeps. More from the Associated Press:
Strap on 3-D glasses and watch holograms of cartoon sperm sprinting to fertilize an egg. Climb inside a gigantic nose, enjoy the smell of fresh hay, then feel the wind blast on your neck when it sneezes. Walk across a bouncy rubber tongue complete with taste buds and realistic burping noises in the background.

This all might sound weird or flat-out gross. But the makers of "Corpus," a new attraction in the Netherlands, are hoping that a combination amusement park and health education museum will encourage kids to take better care of their own bodies.

Even before Corpus officially opened March 20 in Oegstgeest, 21 miles southeast of Amsterdam, it was already a local landmark. The building incorporates a 115-foot high seated human figure into its structure. But the roughhewn Corpus exterior isn't much to look at: all the detail is on the inside.
As for those insides, here are some photos. Take a look:

Those pictures are trippy—reminds me of my college days.

College Days? Lol!

Actually, this looks neat-o. I'm surprised it wasn't a ride at a So.Cal amusement park first!
