Eric Schmitt-Matzen looks every bit the part of Santa Claus. His 6-foot frame carries 310 pounds, leaving "just enough of a lap for the kids to sit on," he says with a gentle Kringley chuckle right out of Central Casting. The whole shtick is designed to spread joy and have fun. Which it does - except for the role he played several weeks ago at a local hospital.

What a waste of energy to dig a hole in the ground. A six foot long hole takes up a lot of real estate as well. How about being buried vertically in a giant threaded screw?

A lot of people die climbing Mount Everest and it's too dangerous for the bodies to be removed, so they remain... frozen in the positions and most often places where they died, they often act as grim navigational markers for future climbers. Here's a fascinating imgur gallery of some of the bodies*, with as much backstory as imgur user FuzzieSocks can dig up.

* it goes without saying that if you have a hard time seeing dead bodies, don't click the link. Corpsicles abound.

Some families in China are hiring pole dancers and naked women. Not to entertain the deceased but to get larger crowds to show up. The government does not want this and the country's Ministry of Culture going out of its way to find offenders and fine them.

While shadowing a coroner, some guy came across this ingenious 40-year-old contraption designed to fire 8 shotgun shells into your head simultaneously, and even included a manual dead man's switch/fail-safe just in case the method failed. Pretty clever problem solving there, someone get that inventor a desk and a payche... oh.

The film follows two dour unfortunates as they battle a series of misadventures while trying to deliver a coffin to the graveyard. The animated caper is a series of emotional and literal pitfalls for the pall-bearing team, as their journey and relationship unravel on an epic scale culminating in the pair joining the old lady in a trip through the underworld.
