sounds like the sort of creepy thing henry ford would do. i suppose that was Ford Motor Company's first and last attempt at emissions control.

i think the 'preservatives make dead people last longer' thing sounds a little suspicious... how frequently are corpses tested for decomposition? how are their dietary histories assessed?
