    to turn real human bodies into statues He does this through a technique which he invented and which he calls plastination The procedure involves injecting liquid plastic solution into the dead body of a volunteer the solution then hardens preserving the cadavers entirely Whilst Von Hagens originally intended his plastinated bodies to be used for the study of anatomy only but over the years his sculptures have become increasingly artistic Most recently a new body slicing technique has been used to create wafer thin cross sections of the bodies Von Hagens first exhibition of palatinate bodies was in 1995 in Japan Two years later he launched the Body Worlds exhibition Subsequent Body Worlds exhibitions have toured the world attracting over 26 million visitors and sparking outrage from certain religious groups From the very start Von Hagens and his work have been at the center of ethical spiritual and legal debate In 2002 he performed an autopsy live on British television despite being warned by Her Majesty s Inspector of Anatomy that it would be considered a criminal act Because of the controversial nature of his work he is said to work out of a secret laboratory the entrance to which is concealed by a movable staircase Link 2 Dust Sculpture Roger Hiorns A nominee for the 2009 Turner Prize for young British Artists Roger Hiorns is an expert in unusual mediums This dust sculpture or a floor in need of serious vacuuming as some would call it was created from the atmozed remains of a jet engine although it could just be The exhibition in London s Tate Modern art gallery also features sculptures made by fusing cow brains with plastic and metal Link 3 Shed Boat Simon Starling It s a shed it s a boat it s a shed boat shed Or is it just a few planks of wood used to make two different things Simon Starling said that the shed had a pedal on it s side when he found it and that this inspired him to turn it into a boat He then transformed it back into a shed for his installation in Tate Modern Although this might have seemed like a spectacular waste of time it actually won Starling the 25 000 Turner Prize back in 2005 On winning the prize he said that he was a very lucky artist something to which everybody else agreed Of course Starling isn t the only person capable of using wood to make something carpenters for example are extremely adept at it as are boat makers and my dad Link 4 The World s Smallest Sculptures Willard Wigan Willard Wigan a dylexic sculpter from Birmingham England is famous for making the smallest sculptures in the world Most of his sculptures are so small that they have to be mounted on the head of a pin or in the eye of a needle just to keep him from losing them Wigan has recently created a miniature sculpture of

  • 5 Awesome Fictional Detectives - Weird Worm
    And with every good cop show and movie there is a top notch detective right at the heart getting to the root of the crime and seeing things no one else can because let s face it in most of these things everyone but the protagonist is an idiot Here are some of our favorite fictional detectives 1 Dirty Harry Callahan A lot of detectives use nothing but their wits and bloodhound like qualities to track down killers and solve crimes Look no further than a character like Adrian Monk for example who knows how to use a gun but sure as hell never wants to relying on his intellect more than anything else We bring up Monk because he s one of the most famous San Francisco detectives of all time The second most famous that is The most famous of course has a very different tactic than Monk After all there s a reason they call him Dirty Harry Callahan Dirty Harry is a smart detective but he s also tough as nails and most definitely does not mind discharging his weapon in the line of duty It s generally a last resort and he s pressed into it when given no other choice but he s a deadeye with his magnum and trust us he ll take your head clean off He s a tireless detective who always gets his man even if he has to bend the rules now and then to make sure he gets a conviction or more likely blasts the crap out of the criminal with his revolver If you re a criminal and Dirty Harry is assigned to the case you d probably be better off just surrendering 2 Lenny Briscoe We mentioned Law and Order so how could we not include the greatest Law and Order character of all time Numerous detectives cycled through the show over its two decades on television not to mention the multiple spin offs most notably Special Victims Unit But none were more memorable than Lenny Briscoe played masterfully by the late great Jerry Orbach Chances are if you re a fan of Law and Order you get more excited for a rerun featuring Lenny Briscoe than any other detective and with good reason He s just a damn entertaining cop quick witted and always ready with a snarky one liner no matter how grisly the situation The formerly hard drinking detective was for the most part clean and sober through his entire run on the show with one notable exception in one of the most powerful and unorthodox episodes in the show s history If you ve seen the show you know which one we re talking about If you haven t well we won t spoil it for you Odds are it ll be on TNT at some point in the next few weeks since they run approximately 127 episodes per week Like Dirty Harry Lenny doesn t mind bending the rules now and

  • 6 Ambiguous Endings That Have Been Answered - Weird Worm
    circumstances that lead to that event are what keeps it open ended In a movie that toys with the idea of perceptions of reality and overall strange symbolism audiences still argue about the true meaning of the film s conclusion After all we re diving into David Lynch s territory The Answers It s simple As many critics and film analysts have pointed out the first half of the movie the one where the weirdness occurs the most it s nothing more than the distorted dreams scenarios that the main character has created inside her head after her aspirations of becoming a star in Hollywood get crushed by the industry The second half of the film depicts her ongoing downwards spiral towards complete insanity after not only her career gets destroyed but her love life falls apart in a twisted sequence of interrelating unfortunate events At the end her insanity catches up with her reality and she decides to end her life 4 The Dark Tower The Ambiguous Ending This massive novel consisting of over 3000 pages divided in 7 books is considered by many Stephen King s masterpiece and it s also his magnum opus borrowing from all of his previous work and putting it into one universe The story depicts legendary gunslinger Roland Deschain as he tries to avoid the destruction of a mysterious dark tower that holds the whole existence within itself At the end Roland successfully saves the future of the tower by destroying the artifacts that were being used to destroy it but his lack of satisfaction doesn t stop after saving the entire existence Oh no he wants more he wants to know what s inside the tower and to his big surprise the top room of the tower contains a portal that sends him back to the beginning of his quest erasing his previous memories in the process and hinting that he has gone through this adventure several times before each one the same as the last Like this we guess The Answers First the Dark Tower is based on Robert Browning s poem Childe Roland To The Dark Tower Came In said poem Roland DOES succeed on his quest of conquering the dark tower and it is hinted that this is achieved with the aid of an artifact called the Horn of Eld the one item that the Roland in the novel doesn t have he lost it in battle By the way the only reason why we are led to believe that Roland got out of the infinite loop at the end of the book and that he might succeed this time is that he regains the Horn of Eld Oh and the complete poem is included in the book right after it ends and as many have theorized this suggests that the novel is actually a prequel of the poem and that the poem describes Roland s final and triumphant adventure Besides that in a short essay before the book s last chapter King points out that this ending is a meta commentary on those who only read books to know the ending and don t focus on the story in between Roland represents the reader his thirst for knowing what s inside the tower represents the reader s hunger for closure Even though Roland already finished his mission he still wants to go further just like the reader does when King already provided a happy ending to the story he actually warns the reader to stop reading if they don t want to be disappointed by what s inside the tower So depending on the way you want to look at it this ending is either obvious or completely meaningless Everything but ambiguous 3 The Sopranos The Ambiguous Ending What can we say about the ending of The Sopranos that hasn t been said already First you have a TV show about the New Jersey mob There s lies treason corruption and violence oh so much violence So after a big mob war the world waited with anticipation to know the ultimate fate of the Soprano family Will they live happily ever after Are they gonna suffer the consequences of their actions Is it gonna end with a 30 seconds cut to black while the Sopranos eat onion rings in some restaurant and engulf themselves in Journey music Have a dance off If you must know the answer to those questions are We don t know I have no idea and Totally in that order The infamous cut to black is the perfect window to leave the ending up to the viewer s interpretation so an actual ending would be hard to figure out Right The Answers Not really Absolutely everything during that last scene in the restaurant leaves us to believe that Tony Soprano is murdered Think about it the whole show is seen from Tony s eyes so if he dies there s no more perspective to see therefore complete darkness and silence and it s not like Tony Soprano was gonna get the tunnel of light and angelic chants The show s creator David Chase has pointed out that the ending is indeed open to interpretation but as many have pointed out the last scene in the restaurant is filled with tension and suspiciously looking people one of whom goes to the bathroom in what seems to be a nod to a scene of The Godfather that ended up with Michael Corleone coming out of the bathroom only to start a shooting But you might say So what Maybe the guy was just taking a piss Well according to actor Matt Servitto the script pointed out that the piss man was indeed more mysterious and that he actually walks towards Tony after getting out of the bathroom implying that he s about to shoot him before the script abruptly ends Also if you think about it why would David Chase take such a risk if the
