In episode 11 of truTV's Adam Ruins Everything, the obnoxious (but lovable crusader for truth, I guess?) Adam Conover ruins something that already sucks: funerals. As it turns out, nearly everything people do for their dead loved ones is kind of a waste of money! Embalming is pointless — did you know that dead bodies pose no health risk and refrigeration is cheaper and just as effective? And that coffins can cost up to $10,000? And that many funeral homes are owned by a giant conglomerate?
Apparently, people in the funeral biz are not too happy about this one.
