You know what the logical thing to do when you build a perfect CG model of the human body? Make this silly video of those bodies falling on top of each other in an invisible column. Even better, make the colors totally weird and let the physics take over so that they fall on top of each other ever so naturally. The…
Nobody can cheat death, but for thousands of years, humans have tried to elude decomposition. Whether we’re saving our bodies for the afterlife or time traveling to a better future, peoples throughout history have gone to astounding lengths to preserve their mortal remains.
Photographer Leonie Versantvoort created this Bellypaint photo with body painter Marieke van den Dungen-Crone that cleverly and beautifully shows how a baby looks inside a pregnant mother’s body.

Millie Dollar sashays onto the stage in a green, feathered dress to conclude the evening's entertainment with a sultry burlesque routine. The capacity audience at the ornate Epstein Theatre in Liverpool is enraptured by her sensual beauty.
Yikes. Here's an animation that uses knives, botox needles and liposuction to completely makeover a woman's body until it's unrecognizable. It's terrifying, to be honest. And it's something you see a lot in celebrity culture where beautiful bodies are turned into monsters in the quest for perfection. NSFW.
This woman's broken blood vessel in her eye has a secret message — a message of love. Or perhaps the tiny creatures who control her body functions are trying to spread the message of love to their host? We may never know.

Prepare to be grossed out. You know how you go to the bathroom every day, cut your nails every few weeks and cut your hair every month? Did you ever think about what all that totals up to? What about all those times you've cried or drooled or worked up a sweat? It adds up to an embarrassing amount of fluid!
Let's go "corpsing," shall we? You know, corpsing? As in let's create a prop corpse for movie, Halloween or maybe even for nefarious pranking purposes? Usually this is expensive, but Propnomicon shows us how to make one on the cheap.
German Police have trained three vultures to become 'detectives' who find bodies. The vultures could potentially be better than sniffer dogs because, well, they can fly. One problem: the vultures might peck at the bodies they find.
Lightpainting requires a certain sort of skill to get the sort of marvellous results we've seen previously, but Croix Gagnon and Frank Schott went the whole nine yards and played an animation of a cross-sectioned human body on a laptop, which they then whizzed through the air and took long-exposure photos of.
Japanese recovery workers have been forced to temporarily abandon 1,000 dead bodies within the radioactive danger zone surrounding the Fukushima nuclear plant, Kyodo News reports. Authorities fear the corpses, steeped in radiation, could spread harmful exposure if moved.

Up until now, crime scene investigators have relied mainly on sniffing-dogs to discover buried bodies, but a probe with the thickness of a human hair could send the doggies off to early retirement if scientists have their way.
Forget those GPS graves in the jungle we brought you a few weeks ago, because in the future what we're really going to do is pour—yes pour—our loved ones down the drain with the help of some lye and an iron coffin contraption from BioSafe Engineering. The last hurdle, as always, will be to overcome the yuck factor…
