Dead Bodies - Fact or Fiction?

Dead Bodies - Fact or Fiction? - Reviewed by Kidzworld on Dec 27, 2006
( Rating: 1 Star Rating)

Most people are buried in a cemetery when they die but not these guys, they went to extremes. Find out what these men did with their bodies after death and tell us if you believe it or not.

Walt Disney

Walt Disney was fascinated with technology. It's no wonder the creator of Mickey Mouse had his body frozen. Immediately after his death on December 17, 1965, Walt Disney was placed into cryogenic suspension - in other words, frozen. The theory goes that anyone suspended and preserved can be brought back to life, if or when the cure is discovered for whatever that person died from. Technology will be able to revive them from cryogenic suspension. And so Walt Disney waits for the day he'll be brought back to life.

Jeremy Bentham

Jeremy was the father of utilitarianism as well as one of the founders of the University of London in England. He's the most eccentric of them all. When Jeremy died, he left everything to the University on one condition - he had to be publicly dissected in front of his friends, then stuffed, put in his finest clothes and mounted in a chair. Oh, and his walking stick, "Dapple" had to be in his hand. There was one other demand - Jeremy must attend the annual meetings of the University's Board of Governors. Since his death in 1832, Jeremy has attended every meeting.

 

Honore Fragonard

Honore was a vet during the 1700s. He developed a way to preserve dead humans and animals after removing their skin. He could make the muscles and blood vessels of a body look as if the skin was still holding them in place. After Honore's fiance died, her body was stolen from its grave. Not long afterwards, Honore presented a human body - skinned, riding a galloping horse, also skinless. The missing fiance perhaps?

1 I think they're all true, because there are pictures explaining its existence.

1 My best friend Samantha told me a story like the Nasty Boil. But this guy got bit on his arm by a spider and it kept swelling up like a balloon in his skin. First he pinched his skin like when you pop a zit. First, a couple eggs came out and then he went to the doctor and cut his skin open and a lot of spider egg sacks came out! AHHHH!

1 Your "theories" couldn't be true. You may have photos but that proves nothing. Your Honore Fragonard story is the least beliveable, the zombie would have fallen apart!

What do you think? Are these stories for real or are they all made up? Take our poll and see what others think. Or

Last week I wrote about several traditions and expressions that started around the 1500s. I hope you weren't trying to impress friends and family with your "knowledge." None of them are true. For a detailed explanation on why they can't be true, click here. Here's what you guys thought of the expressions:

I believe all of them. 0%
I believe that a few of them are true. 77%
I think none of them are true. 11%
I don't know. 11%
