    • I'm pretty this shit is completely fake. Like first off, why would the military pay $6000 for a dead body when they could pay $100 for a pig carcass and get the same effect

    • When you donate a body to science you have no control over what happens to it. A lot wind up in the fbi "body farm" where they leaves bodies t rot in a variety of situations. It's still science, and a neurologist may have harvested the brain before the body was blown up

    • There are some fucked up things that I can laugh about but shit like this always just makes me feel sad because he actually thought he was helping find a cure when he donated her body instead of burying her like most people would have done and to find out that they treated her body like that is sick

    • When I was in paramedic school a few years ago, we had a cadaver lab day where we practiced a few procedures. Same type of story, they donated they’re bodies to science and then the bodies were passed along for some serious money. I decided that day that I would not be be donating my body, lol.

    • The body was donated to science. The scientists didnt need it anymore and since they had ownership of the body, lawfully sold it to the military who used it for ballistics testing.

    • As fucked as this seems, it’s completely legal. When donating your remains, you don’t get to choose where they go. If they’ve no capacity to store you in order to later study your remains, you’re passed down the line until a research group finds a spot for you. (1/2)
