Just when you scroll through the internet and think you’ve seen it all, appears the freshest WTF Holy Hell:
The Japanese engineering firm Fasotec is teaming up with Tokyo’s Parkside Hiroo Ladies Clinic to offer expecting mothers 3D-printed models of their gestating bundles of joy.
A mere $1,230 will get you a 90x60x40 millimeter “Shape of an Angel,” an MRI-scanned keepsake that depicts the fetus in white resin, floating in a block of “amniotic” clear resin.

Human Body Tissue Types: (from left to right)

Skeletal Muscle - performs voluntary movements of the limbs, is arranged into bundles of fibres that connect to bones via tendons. 

Adipose Tissue - a type of connective tissue that acts as an energy store and helps to cushion, protect and insulate the body.

Smooth Muscle - found in sheets on the walls of blood vessels, stomach, intestines and bladder. vital for maintaining blood pressure and for pushing food through the digestive system.

Spongy Bone - found in the centre of bones , the lattice-like spaces in spongy bone are filled with bone marrow or conective tissues.

Cartilage - found in the joints between bones and in the ear and nose. It is tough but flexible due to the high water content.

Dense Connective Tissue - occurs in the base layer of skin and forms structures such as ligaments and tendons.

Epithelial Tissue - forms a covering/lining for internal and external body surfaces. some epithelial tissues can secrete digestive enzymes while others can absorb substances such as food or water.

Nerve Tissue - forms the brain,. spinal cord, and the nerves that control movement, transmit sensation and regulate body function. Made up mainly of networks of nerve cells
