Glow-In-The-Dark Jeremy

Today, in theory, I should be exposed to about one quarter of the radiation that the average Hiroshima survivor was exposed to.

Source: This is according to Wikipedia, which is on the internet, so you know it's true.

Explanation: I'm going to make a long story short here, but I've had some abdominal pain lately and my doctor wants me to get a CT scan. Having never gotten one before, but excited that I can now complete the X-Ray/MRI/CT trifecta, I looked it up online, only to discover that it involves exposing me to gross amounts of radiation. While I'm excited at the prospect of having a solution to this pain, I'm now a wee bit worried about glowing in the dark. Sure, not as much as this guy, but still.

Special Blog Bonus: In other body imaging news, Jason Freeny's website has the anatomy of a LEGO minifig, as well as a few other similar items, including a clever 3D rendering of the anatomy of a balloon animal.

With this glow in the dark thing you can save on batteries for your flashlight for a couple of days.
