It's not exactly like a body. Its weight distribution is different, 
unless you happen to be of uniform density. Also, it can't make tiny 
instantaneous corrections to its posture to stabilize it. Here's an 
experiment for you to do: Go find a body that has entered rigor mortis 
and see if you can stand it upright.
