The first time I held a human brain in Anatomy Lab I was completely speechless. I looked at my classmates expecting a similar reaction and they looked back at me confused like…”dude let’s start identifying the structures.” I had to take a step back and let it process…in my hands was someone’s entire life. From start to finish, every memory, every emotion, every bodily control…was right there in my hands.
I don’t care if people unfollow this is spectacular
I want an in-house tailor so they can make outfits for me that are head to toe in the same material like these
That’s how I look like when I ask my boyfriend for something and he says yes right off the back.

500 year old, nearly perfectly preserved Incan girl - Imgur
Forgot this happened a while back. It’s crazy enough when people find near-perfect wooly mammoths or even a preserved moa claw, it’s super creepy when a nearly perfectly preserved person is found, a young girl at that.
But when you think about this from an archeological perspective, this is a freaking amazing discovery. There is SO much here scientists just wouldn’t see if they had found only a skeleton, such as nose shape, a big “if” when it comes to reconstructing faces using only skulls. Another is that her hair is in loads of thin, pretty braids, and the shape of her eyebrows can be seen too. And because she is so well-preserved, an autopsy can tell what was the last thing she ate before she died, and if she had been suffering from any diseases (she did in this case: she was fighting a bacterial lung infection) which might have been the cause of death. Her cause of death though was being sacrificed in a ceremonial ritual. But even finding evidence of a disease in such a preserved mummy can be an incredible find because then you can take samples and compare how that disease has evolved over time and track its migratory pattern.
So super fucking creepy, but in its own way too, super fucking cool. You can read more here.
