Not to be morbid, but…

…this is what happens when one reads reviews of books about a CSI’s work. (That’s “Crime Scene Investigator” for people who haven’t watched television in several years.) I’m sure most people have heard the term rigor mortis (one of the reasons a corpse is called a stiff, after all), but did you know about livor mortis (also known as lividity)? How about algor mortis?
And while I’m at it, a dictionary-browsing bonus: don’t you agree that “lixiviation” is a much more fun word to say than “leaching”? ^_^
