Looking good Dead

A new study finds that the obituary photographs people choose are getting progressively younger - even as we're dying older. The number of outdated obit pics more than doubled between 1967 and 1997.

As expected women are for more likely then men to choose younger obituary pictures. We can't age gracefully, we can't die gracefully. Does silicone and restylane even decompose naturally?



  1. That's so interesting, I never thought about it. I guess people aren't always especially photogenic right before they die, but it's a little deceptive to put in a 20-year old picture.

  2. Well, if the obituary is a story of their life, it seems important to put a picture of when in their life the person looked best. Makes sense to me. I love to see pictures of old grandmas looking sexy in the '30s.
