    I like the premise of the video. It`s only really been in the last century that we have distanced ourselves from death and dying, which I think is why has become such a taboo subject.

    "...but were afraid to ask."
    I`m not afraid to ask about anything death-related, I just couldn`t ever find the right person. I guess I can send all my questions her way now...

    I liked the premise but found the woman quite annoying, I`d be interested to hear the facts she was telling us without her trying to be funny.

    Interesting, but I found all the little accessories to the video a overkill. I prefer that people get to the point, lmao, but still. Very interesting.

    Since when are morticians medically trained to answer questions about death? About the funeral home preperations maybe, but that`s about it. Everything else she owuld have to google like the rest of the planet does. Honestly, she definitely looked up the effect of rigor mortis on wiki, because beyond maybe knowing the duration (questionable), her feild of work would typically result in the easy answer of hard to put on clothes as she said. You want to know about death and "reintroduce" mortality into culture? Ask a nurse or any other professional who actually see people die, help try to keep them from dying, or help them to die. What she really wants to do is re-romanticize death and act like a kooky weirdo on camera.

    OH, and the more important part about removing the pacemakers... They`re drating radio active.

    She seems very odd for a mortician... black hair and black nailvarnish, joking about with a skull, making jokes throughout, has a pet snake called Rigor Mortis etc... this doesn`t seem genuine really.

    I`d rather ask a medical examiner or forensic pathologist about most of these questions. If I want to know about embalming or how to put make-up on the dead, I would ask a mortician.

    If I want to know about the medical realities of death - I will ask a doctor.
