I‘m leaving my frame to science. To do that, I’ve drawn up a residing will. Here it’s:

I, Brian Daly, depart my frame to science.


There. Nothing to it.

Wait a minute. Who’s going to turn up on the space to pick out up my frame? The giant names in science are useless: Galileo, Copernicus, Mendel, Darwin. Could Bill Nye do it?

But there are such a lot of sciences. Do I’ve to pick out only one? What if I select the improper one? I think sorry for folks previously who left their frame to a science that grew to become out to be no longer so clinical.

“I’m leaving my body to phrenology.” That could be unhappy.

And talking of unhappy, how in regards to the boxers who were given killed within the ring and left their frame to the candy science? There’s not anything candy about boxing. To any one considering of taking on boxing as a science, I say this: No hitting. Use your phrases.

Could practitioners of the dismal science finally end up with my useless frame? Over my useless frame. No economists gets their palms on me till they may be able to provide an explanation for will increase within the sale of sturdy items. I do not get it. If those items are so sturdy, why do folks have to shop for extra of them?

Here’s a concept: My frame may well be minimize up into little chunks the scale of cocktail wieners and doled out to various sciences. That may paintings. But one thing tells me a considerable present donated to at least one science would do extra just right than the shotgun means.

So what will have to I do?

I’ve were given it. I will be able to depart my frame to the science division at the highschool the place I paintings. Keep it native! There’s an optional science direction that covers anatomy and body structure—it is referred to as Anatomy and Physiology—and I wager the instructor may just use me. Yes, that is what I’ll do. I will be able to consider the day when she unwraps my carcass in her lab on the second one flooring and introduces me to the children. “This is Mr. Daily. He was an ed tech right here at the highschool. What say we open him up and glance beneath the hood?”

Hold on. What if I die all through the summer season? My frame might be rotten and pointless by the point the varsity yr rolls round.

Maybe I’d higher put this residing will apart for now. The extra I take into accounts it, the extra I query my choice to go away my frame to science.

But I wonder whether I may just depart my frame to Home Ec.
