While I have been on vacation in Houston from England, I went to see the "Body Worlds 3" exhibit at the Houston Museum of Natural Science.  Although it was pricey to get into, I found it fascinating.  It comprises a collection of preserved human corpses dissected to varying degrees to show various muscles and organs.  There were also tissue specimens as well as exampleas of organs both healthy and diseased.  I didn't get an opportunity to see it when it came to London but I'm glad I saw it here - I feel that I understand anatomy much better this way than just seeingg it in books.  Today I finished reading a book I bought over with me from England, called "The Knife Man" by Wendy Moore.  It is a biography of the life of John Hunter who lived in the 18th Century and who is regarded by many to be the father of modern surgery and he was also a founding member of the Veterinary College of London, forerunner to the Royal Veterinary College as a result of his interest in animal anatomy and physiology as well as human. It is a thicjk book but I found it very interesting and it certainly made me glad that I was not undergoing surgery in the 1700s even under him!

yeah,its good we are living now not century ago, where you could have died just because some simple disease,which are cured very easily nowadays.Plus the operation itself wasnt very nice, have seen some movies.But yeah, we could also be living 2 centuries from now, when your knee,whatever injury you have, is treated with pill and few days off the training:P
Ou i wish that could be that easy even nowadays!
