Episode Summary

Modern crematoriums use 54 gallons of propane to reduce just one body to ash, so the environmental value of a solar crematorium is self-evident. But can this late 1980s invention generate the heat necessary to get the job done? Matt and Jeremy are dead-set on finding out. Join in on a darkly humorous episode where dead inventions for dead people are reincarnated and tested, including one that forces Matt to be buried alive! Will sunlight really turn a human body to ash or should this invention remain six feet under?moreless
