    Yeah, should leave that to the Mythbusters I think.

    Don't worry about security until you've been caught.

    I'm sure I have vague memories of Mythbusters actually doing this one once?

    Welp. I searched "Mythbusters Exploding Bodies" and got this.

    'Things started smoothly with a delightful chase from the police followed by a section one search and a moaning at by the armed response unit.'

    Seems a bit extreme for a derelict mortuary, what was all that about?
    Hoocha

    Tried a recently closed medical building, secca saw us on the cameras and called the police.
    We left, unaware of the police coming, and walked out front of the building. We then saw a man in a black vest, thinking it was security we ran because we are childish. When running up a road a cop car pulled up and two guys jumped out detaining us for a section one search. About a minute later a black X5 pulled up and the police officer mentioned along the line of "Ah that's the armed response unit which initially chased you". The guy jumped out and we were giggling at surprise we had ran from an armed response unit mistaken for security that had been called on us, safe to say they weren't happy. We were also told they called a dog van which was round the back of the building.
    All in all, entertaining.

    I'd assume some sort of tank?

    I think if i remember correctly from a convo i had with a mate he know the two who have bought the slab for about £800 to be preserved and the guy who bought the cabinet for about £300 to be used in his shop.
    Makes me wonder if i can get my hands on a hospilite satellite lamp from the NSRI.
