Doritos TIL

A lesser-known aspect of using dental records to identify bodies in a plane crash is that they sort the corpses based on whether they have Nacho Cheese or Cool Ranch stuck in their back molars. Then they pass around a clip board where families mark down which flavor their loved one(s) preferred and get started with the narrowed-down pool. It does speed up the process, but inevitably there’s more Nacho Cheese, so those families have a longer wait than Cool Ranch. An unfortunate reality of the process that I hope to see rectified in the near future, but it’s not up to me. I’m just the messenger.
