Submission

One away to Aeon.

In other news, I just finished listening to the audio version of Stiff: The Curious Lives of Human Cadavers by Mary Roach, which was both interesting and hilarious. She covers pretty much all optional fates for human remains including: organ transplant donor, anatomical dissection, rotting for study in a forensic experiment, cremation, composting, cannibalism, crash-test dummy, and so on. Brought back a lot of old memories of anatomy labs, as well as the time a lecturing professor stumbled into the cabinet holding the class skeleton, which proceeded to pop out on its sliding hanger like something from an amusement park haunted house. Except that said professor never missed a beat, just kept right on talking. Good times.
