G5053

Welcome to the a Special Wednesday edition of the Coffee Hour on Street Prophets. This is our communities’ open thread where we can talk about what’s happening in our lives, our thoughts on current events, and anything else that strikes your fancy. OMSI (Oregon Museum of Science and Industry) recently had an exhibit on Grossology—the (Impolite) Science of the Human Body—with lots of interactive exhibits and factoids. Here are some photos about the exhibits and factoids pooping.

The exhibits are interactive. Shown above is the neat slide that allows children (sorry, no adults allowed in this one) to go through the intestines and emerge….well, where stuff that goes through the body is supposed to emerge.

So what’s grossing you out these days?

This is an open thread: feel free to share about what’s happening in your life. Most important: What’s for dinner?

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
