Overheard at Body Worlds

LAist relies on your reader support.
Your tax-deductible gift today powers our reporters and keeps us independent. We rely on you, our reader, not paywalls to stay funded because we believe important news and information should be freely accessible to all.

Body Worlds, the display of anatomical specimens preserved by plastination, leaves the California Science Center on the 23rd.During a visit last night, we overheard a woman mumur to her sullen, teenage son as they both examined the tar-blackened lungs of a deceased smoker:

"Look at that. Aren't you at all affected by this? It makes me want to vomit!"

Worry not if you can't get to the exhibition before it closes. Body Worlds 2 starts January 29th.
