Well, of corpse she is.

One should always have a stiff upper lip during this sort of situation.

She'll definitely garner a smorguesborg of attention with that stunt.

That's not punny at all!

Hopefully they don't (de)cease and desist this field trip as it can be a great learning opportunity.

It's pretty clear school officials are dead set against this type of behavior. Let's ask Nic Cage what he thinks.

I have heard a lot of complaints about journalism, but this is the worst.

If you want to run the story about a horrifying picture, include the damn picture! What stops anybody from just making up a story, using a bland name and moving on? And there will be people that read that article and now believe there's a girl out there that wanted a picture with a dead body. And that skews their outlook on life. Maybe for the good, but probably for the bad.

Oh big whoop.
If I donate myself anywhere I'll add a clause that girls are allowed to have their photo taken with me for whatever perverse reason they desire.

One of my favorite things to do with people visiting me when I was in school was to take them to the gross anatomy lab, esp late at night after a few cocktails. The shock the poor laypeople get when seeing a corpse (not to mention several dozen...in tanks mostly) was priceless. Nothing disrespectful, mind you. Simply open said tank, press on bars to raise out of storage solution, pull back the fabric, and let the shock sink in. "Where are her arms???"

Hahaha. Seriously, People need to lighten up. Sure, it was probably inappropriate...snicker...but it's not like she sang America the Beautiful en espaniol or something egregiously offensive like that.
 
2014-02-06 01:00:43 AM
Funny? Possibly.

Illegal?  Also possibly.

Inappropriate?  Definitely.

// A lot of racist jokes are really funny, too, but telling them when you're representing an institution is still a bad plan.

No comment was available from the cadaver because that person is dead and does not care about any of this.

What about your family?
We have funerals for the living.
Which is just one reason why we should show respect for the dead, and why desecrating a corpse is a crime.

They want to keep getting bodies from superstitious donors,  and the "omg selfie" angle is better for them than the "oops, we let a bunch of unsupervised high schoolers play around with our corpses and stuff" aspect of the story. (And much better than a potential "Unsupervised? Naw. You should see the zombie calendar that Dwayne the TA put together last year.")

/I'm sure there will be a rigorous investigation

It's the first thing you're supposed to check. REMEMBER THAT! If you find a dead body, check the anus!
Determine anal remarkability. You'll thank yourself later.

My wife was at a funeral where some girl took a selfie in front of the open casket.  This person wasn't a teenager either.  Technology has only made morons easier to spot.
 
2014-02-06 01:53:52 AM
Was that wrong? Should I not have done that? I tell you, I gotta plead ignorance on this thing, because if anyone had said anything to me at all when I first started here that that sort of thing is frowned upon... you know, cause I've worked in a lot of offices morgues, and I tell you, people do that all the time.

I always found them strange and morbid, but cosiderex it later as grieving people using the newest tech to try and hold on to loved ones.... weird now, but I can SEE WHY they did it, one last chance to see them again, eve if it seems ghoulish now... I still find the tradition of an open casket wake odd...

Yes, that's true.  There's even a website.  Creepy as fark.

I seem to remember we're not allowed to post corpses!

I guess published ones are OK....

Some places are very strict concerning the privacy of their corpses. Probably for reasons like that one.

When I was in nurses training, ages ago, my class had the opportunity to view an autopsy. We were warned to begin with that technically, it wasn't allowed. We were not to mention it to anyone. The procedure was to be done off campus in the morgue of a funeral home on an elderly lady, who had died of natural causes.

When we arrived, we were warned by the Dr. that, again, what we were doing was technically illegal but he felt it would help with our training. Plus, I don't think the deceased had any relatives.

That ought to tell you what a different time it was. 30 students all in their early 20's, expected to keep a secret and not blab it to the world -- and did so.

We observed the autopsy and found it fascinating. For me, even though I worked in the local hospital, it was a first. Usually, I transported the bodies down to the morgue, but was never invited to watch the operation.

BTW, it was not as gross as you see on those crime shows like Bones and CSI. Plus I got to learn about and see actual calcified cysts that had formed in her womb after menopause. The Dr. tapped one on the examination table and it was like using a stone.

Everyone was kind of somber after it was all over.

There were three things that I, as a Medical Technician, was not allowed to do. (1) Work alone on female patients -- since I'm a guy. (2) Work in the OBGYN section -- for obvious reasons. (3) I could assist in surgery or observe, but was not allowed to do so for autopsies. The coroner always had his own assistants. I guess today, there'd be 4 -- not allowed to work unsupervised in pediatrics. For more obvious reasons.

Not that I was real interested in observing an autopsy -- since quite a few of them were folks I'd worked on with the Dr.s and Nurses to try and save and failed.

We even had a procedure for transporting the deceased from the floors to the morgue. We'd place them on a gurney, tuck in covers about them as if they were sleeping and put a pillow under their heads, so they just looked like any normal person being rolled about the hospital.

No covering of the faces to scare the shiat out of anyone walking by. That only happens in horror films.

Transferring them into the coolers was also a somber operation.

After a couple of dead bodies come your way and you shove them in that cold, stainless steel cooler, you start thinking along lines you never considered before.

Especially if you're under 30.

A couple dozen people who claim to be relatives might want to ogle my dead body despite openly and actively shunning me for decades while I was alive, therefore I should set aside tens of thousands of dollars to put on a show to make them feel less guilty about the shunning rather than donate my body to a cause that might actually improve lives of decent people?

And they do the funeral quickly... I also found the tradition where tjw friends and family help in burying the loved one to be hard, and extremely tear inducing, but brings a sense of community to ALL that suffered the loss...
