Learn ‘Grossol­ogy’

Los Angeles Times - - TRAVEL - — Terry Gard­ner

You can call it “eruc­ta­tion,” but like putting lip­stick on a pig, us­ing a 25-cent word for “belch­ing ” doesn’t make it any pret­tier. Which is the point of “Grossol­ogy: The (Im­po­lite) Science of the Hu­man Body,” at Seat­tle’s Pa­cific Science Cen­ter. The ex­hi­bi­tion on bod­ily func­tions runs, like a nose, through Jan. 3. Ah, yes, the nose. It’s one of the stars of the ex­hi­bi­tion inspired by Sylvia Branzei’s “Grossol­ogy” books. The “Tour du Nose” ex­plores 10 nos­tril skills from fil­ter­ing air to pro­duc­ing mu­cus. You can also learn about pass­ing gas, body odor, pim­ples and more. And who doesn’t want to en­joy the vir­tual-re­al­ity ex­pe­ri­ence that lets you act like a kid­ney in “Urine: The Game”? Info: www.pa­cific sci­ence­cen­ter.org
