The fascinating process of human decomposition
Last month I visited a body farm in Texas.So these are places where researchers take recently deceased human bodies and they essentiallyjust leave them out to decompose. So this research, mainly it's helpful when law enforcementcome across a body under mysterious circumstances, maybe a murder, and they want to know howlong has it been out here. The bodies are scattered all over the field. They have about50 out and most of them are under these metal cages that prevent the vultures from gettingin. I kept asking him to lift up the cages for me to get better photos. So what happensright after you die is all the fluids that are inside your cells when you're alive leakout and bacteria start feeding immediately.
There converting the liquids and solids insideyou into gasses that they emit, and this causes the second stage, which is bloat. You alsohave something called marbling during this stage because one of the gases, sulfur, bindsto the hemoglobin molecules in your blood and changes the color of them to an orangeor yellow. And at the same time, flies come. They come almost immediately when the bodyis placed, and they lay eggs. And they especially lay them in any orifices, so your head willget a lot of maggots on it the eye sockets and mouth and nose, and they'll eat away atthat first. They're absolutely just crawling all over the body, like, getting up reallyclose to it and taking photos was the most
intense thing I did there. Then after a fewdays of that, the body moves to the third stage, which is called purge. And that's ultimatelythe bloating is relieved as a lot of the gas and fluids leak out and you see this darkfluid pooling around the body. And the interesting thing is that fluid is really nutrient rich,but it's so rich in nitrogen that it kills off the plants initially. But a year later,it'll become especially fertile. So here this is the next stage. A lot of the changes happenreally rapidly at first, and then it slows down a lot. There's certainly still bacteriahere, but if you were to graph all the nutrients, it's a very sharp decline. If the body isin the sun, especially in Texas, the heat
is so strong that a lot of bacteria and insectscan't actually survive. And so instead of continuing to decompose the body, it willreally gradually mummify it'll just dry up. But if the body is in the shade, thenthe bacteria and insects can continue to feed on it and they'll essentially eat it downto a skeleton. With the vultures, the process is completely different because a flock ofthem will just swarm a body immediately if it's left uncaged, and they can eat prettymuch all of the flesh off within a few hours. One of the things that really fascinated meis the way that the bones are frayed. And that's from their beaks ripping at it voraciously.And that looks like leather or clothing, but
it's skin. Typically they're left out to decomposefor 6 to 12 months. So when the bodies come in, they'll boil them and they put detergenton them and that strips away most of the remaining flesh. And then volunteer undergraduate internswill clean every single bone with a toothbrush. The smell was actually the strongest insidethat lab. It smells like rotting meat, which is essentially what it is you know, justorganic substances that have gone bad. And then after they get clean they get laid backout, they get labeled, and then they get sent to the lab closer into town where they getboxed up. And so this basically serves as a contemporary skeleton collection, whichthere aren't that many of, as it turns out.
We really seldom see bodies anymore in ourmodern culture. Most people die in a . They get directly sent to a funeral home.That funeral home injects them with formaldehyde and puts makeup all over them, so they don'tlook like a dead body. But the truth is that ultimately, whether we see it or not, thishappens. Unless you get cremated, it's going to happen to you. I mean, that's what ecosystemsevolved to do is harvest nutrients to create new life.
7 Days to Die Base Tutorial Build the best base in the game Early Game Base Tutorial Alpha 14
what is up guys 2handgaming here and todayim gonna show you how to build the best base in 7 days to die. Are you new to this gameand you wanna place you can safely put your stuff, while you go out and exploreé Maybeyou are playing a game for a while and you are satisfied with your current base, or youjust wanna safe place to spent a night in without zombies tearing up your house downand bothering you while you craft your stone axe and clubs. Well, this tutorial is for you.This base has been tested on early, middle and late game. It can also be upgradable foryou fashion people that like castles instead of safe simple bases. If you are just startingthe game, its gonna be a little harder for
you because you lack proper tools, but dontworry, stone tools can do the trick. Its just gonna take a while longer. So lets get startedshall weé So you just started the game. The first thing you gona do is gather some materials.You are gonna need grass, stone and wood. So punch ahead. Ok you got your materials.Now, your gonna need to find some kind of point of interest. Some sort of a town ora village or something like that. That way, you can go out and get some cool stuff. Sonow that you found your point of interest,
your gonna have to go away from the edge ofthe town. Just a little bit, so you dont attract zombies. Zombies are a real menace at thestart so stay clear of them. Big cities like this are spawnpoint for zombies and you dontwanna be around them. Alright, you found your spot. This is where you're gonna build a base.Now, you need alot of stone axes. Thats where that stone grass and wood come into play.Alright so now that you got a bunch of stone axes, your gonna need to craft some wood ladders.So if you are missing some more wood go ahead and chop a few. You should get at least 60ladders. Alright! Now that you got your ladders, make sure to spend all your points into miner69er. Thats gonna help you dig faster. Because
YES we are going down.into the ground. Finda nice spot your gonna dig into and start diggin. Like i said this is gonna take a while,but its worth it belive me. The zombies arnt gonna bother you anymore. You just go straightdown untill you hit the bedrock. Alright, so now you hit the bedrock. The next thingyou're gonna need is to make a room. So, make 6x6 at least. Thats gonna give enough roomfor your stuff. Alright, so now that you made your room. You are gonna have to use thoseladders so you can get up there. So put all those ladders up to the top. Alright.thatwasn't suppose to happen.
OK , so bugs happen.its ok. So now that you all those ladders up tothe top, you're gonna need a trap door. So those zombies dont just fall down. Ok, yougot your trap door. This looks like a cozy place. But you are gonna say: Hey its notso secure. Yea it isnt but Hey zombies arnt gonna see you anyway. You just gotta hop inand you're gone. Alright! You can also put barricades around this place. Alright, soyou made your traps around the entrance. You can also put blocks around it. But make sureto put a door.and lock it. This way you can always upgrade your entrance. You canmake it bigger, stronger. Later when the game becomes a little easyer, you can make kindof a yard here. A killing floor if you will.
And kill all those pathetic zombies that darecome in here! When you're down here at the bottom, make sure to put those torches around.It can be so dark in here. So there you have it. Simple but effective base. Zombies canteven hear or smell you down here. Except for 7 day horde. Thats a little bit wierd. Whenthe 7 Day horde spawns, they know you're down here. But they forget about you in a minute.Thats why this base is so cool. You are down here making those stone axes and clubs andthey are up there roaming around trampling on your traps. I hope this guide help youalot. This kind of base served me pretty well. Thank you guys for watching this tutorial. Makesure to hit that like button and subscribe.
