eeeewwwww! one more

I just posted the video below and then I came across this interesting piece of news that seemed to join nicely with the first post.

As a young Lurker we went on Field trips to Museums like the Science Museum in Boston or Mystic Seaport. Who in the hell goes to an autopsy?

Field Trips Canceled After Students See Autopsy of Classmate
PONTIAC, Mich. —  A medical examiner's office in Michigan has canceled public school tours after a high school group watched the autopsy of a 14-year-old girl from their district.

The Detroit News reports Monday that Oakland County officials decided to stop the tours in Pontiac after they were contacted by the girl's parents, who were very upset about the March tour.

Mike Zehnder, the county's director of public services, says it was "a poor decision" to let the tour go on.

The newspaper reports the teacher who brought in the Waterford Kettering High School group was told the autopsy would be of a Waterford middle school student and discussed that with students.

  1. I actually sort of did; it was a field trip to see a medical examiner but we didn't see an actual body, just slides. One guy who's future plans were to be a brain surgeon passed out. He's now in the Marines.
