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%

I found the greatest riddle ever (credits to Ted-Ed), and I want to see if anyone can solve it without looking up the answer. THE RIDDLE OF THE ALIEN OVERLORDS. You and your team have crashed-landed on an ancient planet. The only way off is to appease its three alien overlords, TEE, EFF, and ARR, by giving them the correct artifacts. Unfortunately, you don't know who is who. From an inscription, you learn that you may ask three yes or no questions, each addresses to any one lord. Tee's answers are always true. Eff's answers are always false.  And Arr's answers are random. But, there's a problem. You've deciphered the language enough to ask any question, but you don't know which of the two words 'ozo' and 'ulu' means yes, and which means no. How can you still figure out which alien is which?

Fear: The Emotion of Death   You can't see me, But I'm there. I'm in your tears, I'm everywhere. I stalk you in your shadow, So stealthy and no slack. I'm made of dark matter, You better watch your back. You can hear me, I'm your beating heart. Inside is emptiness, Tearing you apart. You shiver and shake, At the sound of my name. I engulf you, drown you, Surround you with shame.   I've seen destruction, More than anyone. I'm darker than, The world with no sun. The agony arises, There's so much red. Most of it coming, From the dead. I become your shadow, I'm a terrible sight. And when you see me, You're frozen with fright. I'll grab you by your neck, You'll be thrashing around. You're crying, shrieking, Until there's no sound.   I feel so sad, So empty, so. . . Alone. So you'll feel the same, You'll be on your own. And as long as you are with me, At the point of no return. You will go crazy. You'll crash and burn.   Then you understand, With your slowing of breath. That I am Fear, The Emotion of Death.

[Warning: Boring]     It all started on one night where I was doing a quiz on Playbuzz. They were fun, but my mom thought they were inappropriate. Searching the web, she found this site and saw it had quizzes on it. They weren't that fun, honestly. And this site? It was kidzworld. I forced her to let me make an account, and we did. No status. No bio. No mood. No picture. I swore to not go in chatroom or chat with people, because apparently they could be an old man in a basement. I nodded in agreement, saying that she could trust me. Of course, I did some quizzes and went off. That night, we went to bed of course. Now major time skip.    It's, let's say, three nights later. About midnight, and my iPod is next to me. I decided to go and check out "kids world". Clicking into "login", I guessed my password since I really forgot it. Score! Got it right. Anyways, I look around. Forums. Quizzes. Games. And then something spotted my eye.  Chatroom.  Clicking on it, I typed in these exact words.  "Hello?" And that's how my journey started. A few days later, maybe a week, I was introduced to the "boards". Clicking on it, I immediately saw the Roleplay section. Unknowing what it was, I created "Lemini The Witch" and got into an argument with someone who I will not name((*Cough* Gpc78 )). Anyways, I deleted the post. My first Roleplay I made was Crystal Heights. Noobish, stupid, horrible. But surprisingly, people joined. This is where my soon-to-be-best- friend, Ivy, entered my virtual life. And my other best friends. first message: "Are you going to post? We're waiting for you two lovebirds! ;)". Conversation continued. And continued. Our bond grew and grew, until we had reached 100 pages of private messages. 100. Pages. I couldn't believe it at first. 100 pages of messages with my soon-to-be-best-friend. As most of you know, a few months ago, I created several hundred opportunities for advanced roleplayers who were not acknowledged to go through the gates of Roleplaying Heaven. Including me. I helped them by creating the Top Ten Roleplayers, and "accidently" tagging every single advanced Roleplayer. Even Musicgenius showed up. This is a process in the soon to be made   "Roleplaying Council", which I am a part of. During this, me and Ivy were nearing 300 pages of private messages. Crystal Heights was over, but my life was going uphill, closer to opportunity. Even in real life, my hopes were flying closer to the clouds. A few months after this, my faith in the Lord started to fade. I am 10, I started to realize the true meaning of the Bible and what it's message was. I was stuck in the middle of what seemed like a tornado, being swept over to one side, but then jerked back to the other, while being hurt in the progress. I was tearing myself apart. That's went the tornado stopped. It was just rain. I was closer to finding out my true religion. And that was atheism. I felt like I had to have a religion, like something had to have created the universe. My heart was leaning towards Christianity, but my mind was going to atheism. Go with your mind, not your heart, was my instinct. Me and Ivy were nearing 500 pages of private messages. Little did we know that I would be deleting my account and coming back as Ruby Phoenix. As the days passed, my hatred for my user grew. I finally decided to message Jordan that "Please delete my account". I don't know if it was a good thing or bad mistake I did that, but it's too late now. After this,  I felt like my roleplaying creativity was fading away. My titles weren't original like my old ones. I had changed a lot.  And I mean a lot.  On Animal Jam, I was afraid of deleting a buddy. Now I do it without hesitation. I don't cry as much. Like a shell has grown around my emotions. Thanks to the internet, I've grown tougher.  A few months later, my days were, and are, gloomier. I was, and still am, always stressed about tomorrow. If I have too much work. If I can't do things right. If I mess up. If I do anything wrong. I am confused. Why am I here? Where do we go after we die? Why didn't I just continue to not exist? What is my purpose? What's my religion? So many questions for a 10 year old in my fizzing, overloading mind.    I just wanted to share this, just to.
