Your analogy of the colony to a concentration camp struck me in the feels. As a teenager I had the experience of visiting Dachau, and the absolute lack of nature sounds like insects and birds once we stepped behind the gate struck me powerfully. As a student of forensic and medical anthropology, this site has always fascinated me, and your video is the best, hands down, that I have ever viewed. Thank you so much!

How do we talk about death to our young children? My first experience with death was a young bird, dying on the ground in the hot California sun. I tried to comfort it, it died. I built a ring if stones around it and saw it the next day covered in ants in its stone mausoleum. Even with no teaching about death I remember this experience which happened when I was about 4. Prior to this experience I apparently ate several snails raw (so death but to yummy to care). My daughter is 2 and we have no pets. Pets?

One problem! Jesse and Frank James were known an friends, with my Great Grandmother! She went to school with the James boys! (as she called them!) Her name was Mina ! She died back in the late 90's, just short, of her 105th Birthday supposedly! I say supposedly because, she "claimed" she had forgotten the year she was born! Yet, Her husband (Papaw) had died back in the early 1970's and his Older brother died in the mid to late 1960's ! Who was good friends with Frank. Again, He was close or just over 100 when he died! So the family always figured Mamaw (Mina) was closer to her Hundred an Teens at least. But, she always claimed she an Papaw went to Both Jessie's and Frank's Funerals! Jessie's, she ALWAYS SAID; was in Texas! She never thought they'd get there, cause the Chevy kept "breakin' down" ! Missouri was another "James Family Member! Because Jessie, aka Dalton; was buried in Texas!!! Guess, if the US Marshals Badge ever turns up, guess that'd end the controversy! Maybe???

About the headstone thing in Texas , 4 years ago my grandma informed me that my dad is half Indian , I ask how the blood hell we ended up with the last name knotts😇😞 she politely explained that in the 1930 it was quite common to steal names from tombstones in Texas because in order to combat white and Indian marriages they passed a law that said you had to have 3 names in order to get married, add that to the fact that in the early 1900s they had no fingerprint database or picture ids.

I gave my cat permission to eat me if I die. I'm often in situations where it might be a long time before anyone notices that I am no more and I wouldn't want him to starve. Why let good food go to waste. It might also deter anyone from putting my corpse on display. I don't think I'll exist to care, but if that weren't the case, I'd really hate the thought of an open casket funeral with old ladies pinching my cheek and saying how cute I was. I'd prefer that my spoiled remains be disposed of with no fanfare and anyone that misses me just have a rocking wake.

Dear Lady, you don't need to be some one cooler, you are cool.. Take care an God Bless from Florida. P.S. I, too, hate the heat. And I am a Floridian, so we have the humidity going for us also. lol

When you’re in the south, it’s pronounced “puh-con”. When you go back up north you can pronounce it “pee-can”. Just trying to help you blend in 😊

Its also rumored that Yurovsky's men also got really drunk before the execution to better deal with what they were about to do, so their aim was made even... more awful.

A cemetery is completely wrong for an amputated arm. It should have gone to an ARMORY. OK, had to do it. Sorry (not sorry)

My five year old understood death. I asked him what he thought it would be like after death. He responded easily "nothing, you are dead, there are no thoughts". Is this unusual? Just curious if others mom's have kids who get it at age five or didn't get it.

I think there is something to be said for them depicting the camp where the Donner party actually lived in its sort of natural stark state, like that was the reality that the Donner Party was actually facing. It's hard to find a balance between focusing enough on a tragedy and using it too much for shock value and tourism.

If Black people were not buried separately, Who Would Know They Were Black? And as Dr. Fletcher says: "They Can't Do Our Hair..." IMHO. (I am white btw, and have no plans to do anything except get cremated when I die... Give my body to science, maybe? imho)

I'm a real burial man, not like this goofy beetlejuice reject.. You also need an oversized burial vault unless you're being placed in a mausoleum.. Graves are normally 3 and a half feet wide , while an oversized grave is 4 .. carrying these caskets takes up to 8 people.. 3 on each side and 1 on each end. The funeral director will usually hold the end handle at the head of the casket.. unless the body is rolled on the lowering device foot first depending on the cemetery. Sometimes its foot to the stone other times its head first.. I always flag the director to show him which way to bring em in..

Seems like several outlaws kept going after their death. Jesse James, Bill the Kid, Butch Cassidy just to name a few LOL

I very much appreciate your videos. Thank you Loving the idea on a natural burial. Used to think creation was the best option until I learned I could be buried naturally. I want to rejoin the earth.

It is all well and good to try and prepare a body so that family members can say goodbye. It is another thing entirely to fill a deceased body with toxic chemicals and bury them or expel them into the atmosphere up a chimney.
