I don't think I should have expected to recognize myself from a cross-section of my brain, eyeballs, and sinuses. In fact, I think I look damn silly.

I do recognize my crooked nose in this one, but I didn't expect the crookedness to continue inside the skull. That huge white ball inside my right cheek -- is that mucous? Is there a doctor in the house?

I can't resist this one: peep the brain stem.
