Okay, so I know almost everything I see on Bones is so ludicrously far from true it ceases to be funny and just passes in one ear and out the other, even (and especially) stuff that sort of comes from something real, okay? But I’m curious about something from last week’s episode.
Shockingly, it’s gotten this far into the show before they did a blackout episode! And of course there’s a time component because, oh, never mind, it was dumb. But. They needed to xray some bones but had no power, so they set up this machine where a spindle of rolls of office tape stretched out over the bone, which was on top of xray film. They turned a crank quickly which pulled the tape off the rolls over the film, making a big static electrical visual effect, and when they pulled the film out (it looked like the kind of instant film that’s like a Polaroid that fashion photographers and such use - in cartridges, and you pull it out and it develops) voila, xray.
Plausible? And would it look like that?
