Not too long ago,
The Bones Exhibit came to the local science museum and we went
to check it out. It's a spooky educational exhibit, and we
all know education means fun, right kids? Right. So here's a
quick tour of some of the things we saw...
A wide variety of cool
looking x-rays were the first thing in line. I'm pretty sure the guy
on the left had a bag of cocaine hidden in his rectum.
As nifty as it looks,
I gotta say I was disappointed with the skeletal rodent wheel. I
really wanted to see it run. You know, like a button you could press
that would make it move. I mean, come on, this is a science museum
we're talking about. There's gotta be somebody with some experience
in robotics around. Probably the same person who had this rodent
skinned alive. :(
Going inside the giant
skull was scary, a little too scary.
The fake archeological
dig drove Protoclown and I into an uncontrollable fiery rage. We
grabbed the plastic dirt 'n bone pieces and starting wailing on each
other with 'em. The battle went on for hours, and in the end,
neither of us won. So, we finally decided to call a truce and take a
Nothing like spooning

Oh wait, that's just
some other bones. No need to worry.
And don't lie, you
would've given him a pinch too...
Sadly, these awesome
Day of the Dead figures weren't for sale.
They did have some tasty freeze-dried astronaut ice cream for sale
though. Not sure what that has to do with bones, and I really
couldn't care less because I love how that stuff tastes.
Next up was a look at
the things we do to protect our bones when engaged in athletic
Yep! Protective gear
works just fine!
We were totally
confused about this part of the exhibit though. What did it have to
do with the skeletal system? I fear that we'll never discover the
Well, it wasn't a very
long exhibit, and definitely can't compare to last year's
Grossology exhibit, but it was
educational. I guess in the end the one thing I learned is that
since we people have skin, we're a lot less naked than skeletons
Knowledge is power.
