Be On the Lookout For Brains—100 Brains in Jars December 3, 2014Posted by stuffilikenet in Brain, Mutants.
The University of Texas at Austin is missing about 100 brains – about half of the specimens the university had in a collection of brains preserved in jars of formaldehyde. in the basement
One of the missing brains is believed to have belonged to clock tower sniper Charles Whitman, who was also reportedly the youngest person in the world ever to become an Eagle Scout.
"It’s entirely possible word got around among undergraduates and people started swiping them for living rooms or Halloween pranks."
The university’s agreement with the hospital required the school to remove any data that might identify the person from whom the brain came. However, Schallert said Whitman’s brain likely was part of the collection.
"It would make sense it would be in this group. We can’t find that brain," he said.
EXCITING UPDATE: Brains have been found at the University’s sister campus in San Antonio. “They read a media report of the missing brains, and they called to say: ‘We got those brains!’"
Damn. I was looking forward to a SyFy original TV series in which a handsome couple hunts down the brain of the week. Maybe I will have to pitch it to them myself.
