rehydrating mummies 2019.

Post by John Landon » Thu May 30, 2019 10:30 am

In Juarez City, there is a forensic doctor that has developed a formula that will rehydrate mummified cadavers. At first, people called him crazy, but now he is sought after by people across the globe for his knowledge.

This helps bring closure for many families who's missing loved ones may never be identified after gangland killings and having thier bodies dumped in the desert where they dry out and become impossible to identify, by fingerprints and tatoo's.

I doubt Egyptian authorities will allow this to be tried out, but I think it could help put a few arguments to bed. Especially King Tut...

Do not watch if you are a bit squeamish... 8)

Interesting enough and usefull for the modern day mummies, but I very much doubt it would be much use on Egyptian mummies. As for rehydrating Tut they would really struggle, he is mostly carbon.

I guess the oils or pitch that they used wont have helped either Horus.
Shame really, but this process is an excellent idea and will no doubt have helped lots of families of the victims that this process has helpded to identify..

My concern is this process may be a catalyst for the Zombie apocalypse... :cg

I watched WWZ twice, :up

interesting to note that Peter Capaldi was working for the W.H.O in South Wales in that film, and then bacme Dr Who? in the same year.
