Interesting site of the day: The the Cancer Research and Prevention Foundation's Colossal Colon Tour!! The Colossal Colon is a 40-foot long, 4-foot high replica of a human colon. Visitors who crawl through the colon, or look through the viewing windows, will see healthy colon tissue, colon disease, polyps and various stages of colon cancer. The Colon was modeled after a real colon taken from colonoscopy film footage and is extremely lifelike. It's one of the weirdest things I've seen in a while... For a colon, it's much cleaner than I thought it would be -- I wonder if after you crawl through it there is a roll of Charmin to clean after yourself... ;-)
The Colossal Colon is coming to Boston, Mass.! The Colossal Colon Tour is free to the public!
