billion day funeral

i am nothing if not sort of a creep. at least that's what i'm told when people learn that i take photos of dead birds and i want to be a mortician when i grow up.
i like to read about different types of funerary traditions, sky burials being one of my favorites.
so today when i was reading up on good ol' fashioned western embalming, i came across this line:

"the first step in embalming is obviously to check that the individual is in fact deceased"

and i thought it's nice that even creeps can make a decent joke.
