When You Wish Upon a Shooting Corpse Star, and Other Facts About Human Death Practices [Video]

The Human Machine


Mortician Caitlin Doughty is providing us a huge service: answering our questions about what happens to our dead bodies when we are no longer around to find out for ourselves. She’s been running a web series on You Tube, Ask a Mortician, for a while now and we’d like to present her fifth episode to you. In this video, she covers pressing questions like “What happens to corpses in space?” and “Will burning the body a dearly departed obese person cause a grease fire?” But if you are just in the mood to find out more about her line of work, we urge you to visit her web site, Order of the Good Death.
