- Time lapse can depend.What is the time lapse between death and med student cadaver status? Has anyone heard of someone accidentally working on a body of someone they knew in life?
Our school had an exchange with another school that was several hundred miles away. We had some fresh bodies but they were from out of town. We always knew when new bodies were arriving because we knew the truck. Later when I would see that truck on the highway, I knew what it was carrying. It was kind of creepy.What is the time lapse between death and med student cadaver status? Has anyone heard of someone accidentally working on a body of someone they knew in life?
Haha, not my tank, but yes we did....and it took like 30 seconds to google him and figure out who its was...matched his pic too. Charles Edward Smith. Killed a cop with a .357 while driving down the highway. Pretty mean dude...made obscene gestures toward the widow of the cop he killled during the trial, didn't play well with others in prison. Had a very large last meal...16 pepsis, a strawberry shortcake, 9 tacos, etc...no last words. All I remember.No ****ing way you had an executed convict, no ****ing way.
Yes, we're given a list of the causes of death and age, and in the lab orientation lecture the prof said we might want to check out the cause listed for tank number x, as it was a little out of the ordinary...."Lethal Injection"Awesome, I didn't think they would be allowed to donate. Did it really say "lethal injection?" I guess there's no HIPAA for dead guys!
Oh, haha...didn't really think about it, seemed so public already. Now they'll haul my butt off to jail and he'll get the last laugh.Oh yeah we are given that info here as well. I was referring to your disclosure of his name.
I was a little off....here's the real quote:Geez, I hope they pumped his stomach well before giving him to you!
Nine of anything is too much. Except brownies. I would need waaay more than nine brownies...no nuts, no icing...just brownies. Mmmmm.Nine tacos and nine enchiladas? That is a damn fine last meal.
PS I'm so surprised you're in Texas.
If I ever am put in the situation of choosing a last meal:
DAMN! Do they let him eat that throught the day or what? He must have wasted a lot of food. 16 can's of Pepsi? I am more of a Coca Cola guy myself.I was a little off....here's the real quote:
Nine tacos, 9 enchiladas, French fries, 16 Pepsis, salad with ranch dressing, a bowl of picante sauce, beef fajitas, a bowl of shredded cheese, a strawberry cake with strawberry frosting and six jalapeno peppers.
See? Now why couldn't he have thought of that....go down like a man dammit. Would've left a nice surprise for the med students too.Or you could just ask for blowfish as your last meal and instead of eating the carefully excised portion just down the whole fish. Kill yourself a couple hours early out of spite.
Good God, man. That's the most disgusting thing I've ever seen. I get chest pain just looking at it.If I ever am put in the situation of choosing a last meal:

Dudes, have y'all seeeen the stuff John Madden features from time to time on was Mon/now Sun Nite Football...there has to be a spike in bypass surgeries after those images are flashed nationally. That monstrosity fits right in. Nasty.Ditto.
Well, my school handles the health care for 80% of Tx inmates...so we get the "hook up" on that sort of deal. Not sure if the other Tx schools accept bodies from the prison system.Texas is now officially the coolest place to go to med school.
