Where you can’t afford to die

If you visit our site often, or love to discover the odd and strange like we do, this post will be right up your alley. It’s set in the USA, so you would expect something odd, but this one kicks it up a notch. Some of you may find this morbid. Some may find it as yet another example of government interference. Others may find it funny. But it’s all true.

In this small city near San Francisco, the dead outnumber the living by a thousand to one. There’s some gruesome history here – and a few questions for the future. Here, the always curious Tom Scott visits a genuinely peculiar place; Colma, California, where those San Franciscans who have shed their mortal coils are buried. All of them. In one place. Okaaaaay.
