I Love Technology

One of my favorite lines from The Sim.psons is:

LISA: What's inside you Nelson?
NELSON: I dunno, guts, black stuff, and about 50 J.ims

The beautiful thing about living in this day and age with all of its technology is that when you have an MRI, they send you home with a disc of your scans for your own records. Even more beautiful for me is I work in a company that creates software to view MRI scans. I can't tell you how much fun I had at work on Thursday looking at my guts in MRI format.

"There are my ovaries. There is what looks like a nice steak. There's my bum crack. I think that's my uterus, although it could be bowel. I'm not sure what all of these black and white pockets are unless they are cysts or endo."

I even had fun showing off my guts to a few interested coworkers who found it as interesting as I did.

And now, if you are interested, here is an image of my guts and black stuff, minus the 50 J.ims.

This is a top down view. Gross and freaky, yet really cool.

Apparently I have a nice layer of thermal padding. :)

LOL I find it so interesting too. Not that I'd ever want to work in a medical field, though!
Nice insides :)

Very interesting view. I think it is amazing where technology has gone. Even the difference between when I was younger to now.
