Morning Start: Human bodies can move for more than a year after death

Your morning start for Tuesday, February 11, 2020.

Enjoy the sunshine while you can…

Fun Fact of the day:

According to research findings from the Australian Facility for Taphonomic Experimental Research., corpses can move for more than one year after death. A researcher named Alyson Wilson explained that the arms of corpses were significantly moving, so that arms started off down beside the body ended up out to the side of the body.

The research team believes the movement is caused by the body’s ligaments drying out, shrinking, and contracting.

Weather forecast according to Environment Canada:
