A Talking Transparent Woman is demonstrated daily at the Museum of Science, Boston. Presented by the Mass. Heart Association, it gives a dramatic lesson in body structure and function, showing circulatory and nervous systems and internal organs. The life-size figure was fabricated at the Deutches Gesundheits Museum, Cologne, Germany.

TEN BADDEST BAD POSTCARDS OF 2011 — #5
Your BAD POSTCARDS Blogger Reblogs Ten of his Favorite Postcards of the Year
Potters Wax Museum
St. Augustine, Florida
This is one of my favorite wax museum postcards. I love the arthritic hands. The poor guy can’t bend his fingers enough to get a good grip on the syringe. The taxidermied chinchilla is a nice touch. But Louis isn’t paying attention to what he’s doing. The chilla is getting spiked while Louis is gazing off into space. Not professional. The artist’s laboratory backdrop is kinda cool.

Today is INTERNATIONAL MUSEUM DAY
On BAD POSTCARDS the museum is likely to be wax. Wax museum postcards are the baddest! Here’s one of my favorites.
LOUIS PASTEUR (1822-1895)
French chemist and bacteriologist, born Dec. 27, 1822. Won his “Bachelier es Lettres” at Royal College of Bessacon, 1840. Pioneered in fermentation research. Developed the first vaccination to control chicken cholera and anthrax. His greatest gift to mankind is the treatment for hydrophobia. On July 6, 1885 after prolonged experiments he inoculated a child who had been badly bitten by an infected dog and the experiment was a success. AN EXHIBIT AT POTTERS WAX MUSEUM, ST. AUGUSTINE, FLORIDA.
WALK RIGHT THROUGH MY HEART
In honor or World Heart Day (September 26)
“SCIENCE MUSEUM OF THE FRANKLIN INSTITUTE: Philadelphia, Penna. Visitors may walk through this giant heart to see how blood is pumped through the body.”
Not really a BAD postcard like the ones we’ve been seeing here…
…but perfect to dedicate to FAKE SCIENCE.
Here are the facts: “Today, the investor-owned power and light companies are participating in seventeen atomic power plant projects, either in operation, under construction or in various stages of planning.”
You can accept that, OR you can skip over to FAKE SCIENCE, “for when the facts are too confusing!”
