So, I am mummifying a chicken like an egyptian. I am also using necromancy to raise the spirit of Johnny Carson in order that I may learn to tell the future as he did on his show.

As for the chicken, here are some details:

And here was I , afraid that you'd turned all normal on us, Bro. harhar.gif

I was thinking KFC for dinner tonight, but I think I'll pass.

If you're already in school in Jersey, why not try that mummification process on Djoorjamb?

the whole Jersey thing fell though...what the hell is wrong with New Jersey I wonder?

But yes. The chicken is slated to rise from the dead in 3045 when aliens dig him up violating the curse I am going to put on the body.
Absomphe
I know your New Jersey question was purely rhetorical, but I'll answer it anyway...

Practically everything, and I think I'm being kind.

Too bad none of us will be around to verify that alien unearthing, damnit.

OR you can give a "treasure map" to someone for whom you harbor a secret hatred.

I didn't know Egyptians mummified chickens.

I think environmental conditions also play a part in the mumification process. Helps to bury the subject in dry sand with a temp of 90F and low humidity for a protracted period of time.

At least that is what was done to the body (human) in the experiment I saw on either Discovery or some other such channel.

Also, acording to at least this site,

Web Mineral site

NATRON is not a mixture of NaCl and NaHCO3, it is Na2CO3*10(H2O).

Furtheremore, it is fairly widespread and occurs at many dry lakebeads throught the world.

Salt and baking soda will probably dehydrate it at a much faster rate.

Chicken is better fried.
Conju
Perhaps a more balanced chemical equation would be appropriate?

NaCl+NaHCO3+H2O-->Na2CO3+H2O+HCl?

That right?

Not to be picky,
but................

The Egyptians mummified leaders cum Gods.
Those that died a natural death, via war, rebelion, old age, etc....

Why a chicken pumped full of growth hormones, steroids, water (fer plump breasts) and lackin' in leadership skills?
Was it's death "natural"
There was a reason for things then,
what's this?
Perruche_verte
Also, that chicken of yours appears to have no HEAD.

Which may or may not make him an apt symbol of the nation's leadership in this day and age.

But what kind of a sinister undead guardian is he going to make, stumbling around like... like a chicken with its head cut off?

(I'm curious, where exactly do you buy a frozen chicken WITH guts included, but WITHOUT the head?)

That God Damned Colonel has been mummifying chickens in 11 secret herbs and spices for years.

anyway... this isn't as informative or substantive as it used to be.. but here is the "animal mummies" site at discovery.com.

*sigh* it used to be so much better. i have archives for it, but that would require effort to go about searching for the info.

BS.

Egyptians mummified pets, slaves, whatever they deemed worthy of sending into the afterlife so they could be together with said creature after their own passage into the shadows.

Khames was most worthy.

Ch must be planning to miss his pet chicken somethin' fierce in the afterlife.

That, or he wants to ensure a steady supply of KFC.

Yes they did,
because they were worthy of the mummified person.
I have cats that are mine, or my wife's familiar's,
they would be worthy of this treatment.
But since we're gettin' cremated they are going with us.
Who's this chicken worthy of?

Care to elaborate?

This puts me in mind of ol' Blinky:

Kirk
" I put it on a piece of paper to take the photograph, and when I lifted it up there was a perfect impression of a chicken in blood—it was almost like the Shroud of Blinky! (Later, someone bought that for a thousand dollars—Blinky's shroud! It wasn't for sale, but they really wanted to have it—it was like this sacred item!) "

I work too hard.

Chrysy, I think you need this:

I must add, this is the coolest art project I've seen Chrysy do, I admire his creativity and I am in no way poking fun at him for this particular project.
Way to go Chrys! can't wait to see your next venture.
By the way, borax is natron, right?

no idea about the borax. One thing about this is that I am doing it in my house, so regardless the baking soda really does a lot of cut out the odor.

"what is that smell?"

"my chicken mummy."

"what?"

"you heard me, now about that panda meat."

I don't know what my next thing will be...maybe build one of those particle acclerators to can turn lead to gold.

and perhaps mummies.... and in the Czech republic they make this stuff called "absinth" with it.
