Have you ever wondered what your sciatic nerve looks like and where it's located in your body? Know what pleurisy is? Did you know that a human being's right lung has 3 lobes but the left lung has only 2 lobes? Ever wonder what a layer of subutaneous fat looks like or how big your lungs are?
I just watched 2 hours of videos called "Anatomy for Beginners" which showed the dissection of two deceased men. At the very beginning of the first video, all of the skin (our largest organ) was removed from a fresh cadaver, and it went on from there.
If you're interested in what your body looks like on the inside and you won't get freaked out as a saw/chisel is used to take off the back half of a decedent's cranium to expose the brain, then you are obviously as curious and interested in learning about our bodies as I am. Tomorrow, I will watch 2 more videos.
