Happy birthday, Jennifer Lawrence! [August 15th, 1990]
"I try to look at everything in a very realistic, undramatic way. I think it’s easy to dramatise things, especially in this industry where things are made to seem glamorous when in fact, they’re really not. I haven’t taken my eyes off the ball and I haven’t taken my eyes off my job.”
An international team of archaeologists have discovered that two mummies found on an island off the coast of Scotland are, like Dr. Frankenstein’s monster, composed of body parts from several different humans.
For example, scientists realized a female skeleton’s jaw didn’t fit with the rest of the skull, and after some DNA testing, they found that the bones had come from different people. In the case of a male skeleton, the parts were from people who lived hundreds of years apart.
I’m thinking this might have been done post-mortem for people who’s bodies weren’t whole. This is just complete spit-balling, but Scotland is a mainly Catholic country, right? In that case, early on, bodies that were without a part might have been given replacements for purgatory. Just a guess.
