Okay, so I'll admit this is not normal
 
I am browsing on eBay and I come across something that grossed me out, and then intrigued me. A medical school selling human skulls they are done with. So, obviously it is a huge :shock:, but the more I thought about it, the more I kind of thought it'd look kind of cool in a fish tank. :lol:

I'm curious, who would put this in their tank, given the opportunity. Remember, you'd have to boil it before you put it in the tank! :lol:

Link!

I think that would look kind of cool. Especially with a bubble stone beneath it with a red light shooting up. Red bubbles coming out of the eyes. nose. and mouth muahahaha :twisted:

I have this model skull, pretty sure it's some kind of plastic, that I was really considering putting in my old 30G freshwater, but I decided not to. I wonder if a real skull would leach minerals into the aquarium.

NO WAY, instead of the friend running and screaming, mine would be like "dude no way, that is sick!!!!"

Hey if it were my skull I wouldn't mind being with the fishes in their tank. Beats being locked in a cabinet used for study, or inside a rotting body underground.

lol...well...girls would anyway...he'd have a hard time getting u know what after that! lol j/k

ok, you guys are freaks...

hoever, what disturbs me more is the fact that the medical school is selling the skulls. Are these skulls that people "donated to science"? If so, it doesn't seem right that they sell these off to people for non science purposes. I don't think ending up in a fish tank would be the worst thing, but who is buying them and why??

If you'll notice on the ebay listing it says "for medical purposes only", which will protect them from any legal problems and if it became an issue the person who purchased the skull would be in the negative I suppose.

For the record, I have no desire to buy it. :lol:


...I'd rather have my skull in a fish tank than a coffin, though! :twisted:
