Should we eat before or after viewing this exhibit?
I've just been alerted by means of a geek mailing list that I'm on that there is a FREE exhibit of forensic science at the NIH National Library of Medicine in Bethesda Maryland opening this February 16th and ending in about two years.

It is generally more *fun* to go to these things with a friend and I can't see taking a "date" to an exhibit like this, not unless I place a really entertaining personal ad on "ogrish.com" :-)

Anyone interested in seeing it with me can reply here, we can discuss the ideal time or date after finding out what its hours will be.

Visible Proofs: Forensic Views of the Body a new exhibition at the National Library of Medicine, explores the history and science of forensic medicine. Visible Proofs shows how physicians, toxicologists, anthropologists and criminologists have struggled to devise scientific methods that produce reliable knowledge — "visible proofs" that can be used as evidence in inquests and trials. Through the use of objects, graphics, and multimedia presentations, visitors to Visible Proofs will see how changing forensic views of the body, in the laboratory, crime-scene and courts of law — and views of forensic science itself — have changed our world.

Visible Proofs: Forensic Views of the Body opens February 16, 2006. Admission is free and open to the public. For more information, or to schedule a guided tour of the exhibition, please contact the exhibition program at 301-594-1947 or NLMExhibition@nlm.nih.gov.

Oh, man...I wish I could go!!! One could always take me on a date of that sort. I like interesting stuff like that. Though nobody was able to talk me into going to the Mutter museum in Philadelphia...that was a little different. This is grownup gore, as opposed to preserved little babies, which I would have a hard time dealing with.
