Another week in anatomy

Once in a lifetime. Hopefully.

Yesterday I skinned a penis then split it in half.

Today I removed a leg. I split the pelvis in half using a chisel, cut through the perineal cavity above the thigh and pulled the leg away from the body. Holding the leg, I’d say it weighed forty pounds.

Weird stuff.

Hey, I have an anatomy question. How hard is it really to break a bone? I'm guessing the ones you work with are easier to break since they must be more brittle, but I've always wondered how much pressure it really takes to break a bone (since I never have. Not that I want to).
