Just because you’re dead doesn’t mean you can’t be clean which is exactly why we have embalmers in the world. They scrub the body, disinfect it, and then inject it with the right chemicals to preserve it before the burial. And oh yea, they also have to make sure the people are really dead. Not a job for the faint of heart.
Every once in a while scientists need to dig up a body in order to extract DNA for the purposes of a criminal investigation. To get the DNA, however, the tissues need to be ground up, and that is exactly what our friend the corpse grinder does.
Of course to some people blood and guts won’t ruin lunch any more than a bad joke, but to others spending even 5 minutes in the emergency room or the back of an ambulance would be enough to induce nightmares.
As awesome as this job sounds its can be extremely hard on the senses. You see bacteria don’t generally live in the most sanitary of conditions which means these scientists often find themselves in damp, hot, and extremely smelly locations.
You get pooped on, barfed on, peed on and spat on yet somehow through it all you manage to love the source of all that muck and mire. Mad respect to all the mothers and fathers out there.

Every time you flush a toilet the waste is sent off to the treatment plant for processing. Upon arrival at the plant, the first thing that happens to the waste is it enters the 5 story high lift pump chamber. The problem however, is that sometimes the pump breaks. At this point a person wearing a full body suit along with SCUBA gear has to swim through the mess of excrement and tie a rope to the pump so that it can be pulled out and replaced.
Although the detectives get all the glory, someone has to clean up the mess, and these are the guys that make it happen. Cleaning everything from blood and hair to skin and teeth its not hard to see why their job is on this list.
Among the rats, human excrement, and rotting trash beneath our city streets you will find those steel nosed warriors we commonly refer to as sewage cleaners. Be grateful for them…every time you flush the toilet.
