I've been reading upsetting stuff for a while now on the increasing crisis in medical science that is coming about from the decreasing scarcity of human bodies made available for scientific research. Well, according to the Beeb, there is a desperate shortage of folks who donate their brains to science when they die. Evidently a donor card doesn't do the trick in most cases. That's just for transplants. So for all of you who haven't got some other serious objection, please do make sure that your friends and relative know that you want your body made available, especially since many doctors are evidently such fragile flowers that they now don't even ask.
