Brain Freeze

According to today's Chicago Tribune, a Chicago area psychologist named Helen Morrison has had seriel killer John Wayne Gacy's brain stored in her basement for the last 10 years. Click here for the full article.

Morrison plans to keep Gacy's brain indefinitely in the hope that scientists will come up with new ways to analyze brain tissue.

Her house is an extremely safe place to keep the specimens, she said, adding that a number of security measures are in place. She would not elaborate.

I think that one way of knowing you've lived an extraordinary life (and it's probably got be an extremely good one or an extremely bad one) is if people want to save your brain after yer dead.
