Ashes and then scattered over the ocean for me.

cremated and scattered on the heads of people I didnt like

I don't plan on dying.
I'll have my mind downloaded into a computer then transfered into a cybornetic body.

cremated and put in my Xs grill

Cremated, and then compressed into an artificial diamond. And I'm going to make sure those directions are in my will.

I think cemeteries are a huge waste of space.

Buried, not far from the 5 generations of my American ancestors from my fathers side. (Moms family was here way before that, but are scattered all over the south)

Cremated, ashes loaded into 50BMG APIs!!!!

Cremated, the ashes are to be used in the gravy at my wake.  At the reading of my will, I will reveal what they just ate.
Link Posted: 4/17/2006 11:03:04 PM EDT
Buried, 'cause you never know when you might need to zombie up and go on a brain hunt.

Though from what I'm seeing these days, it might be thin times for zombies here in America, with brains apparently in very short supply.

Toss me in a wood chipper, then use me as fertilizer. I dont care, I will be dead.

I seriously want my funeral to be an open casket ceremony and just after my eulogy an A-10 makes a super low pass and straffes my casket with a few hundred rounds of 30mm. (the audience woulnt know of these plans of coarse)

......I'll invite all of you, It'll seriously be SOOOOO SWEEET!

Burned, I don't want to wake up with my eyes sewn shut. Plus I don't like confined places.
Link Posted: 4/17/2006 11:38:09 PM EDT
Exploded in a shower of gore over a field.  Of course, that won't happen.  Cremation will at least allow some of my nutrients to find their way back to Earth, and be cheaper than burial.  Not to mention not taking up any real estate.

I told the wife she was going to be cremated and her ashes spread at walmart
She thinks I was kidding.
Link Posted: 4/18/2006 1:20:33 AM EDT
Neither.....I want an above ground crypt. I also want to be on a slab instead of being in a coffin. The finishing touch will be a couple of windows. I'm not talking that frosted shit either I mean clear glass. That way people can look in and check me out!!! Better yet maybe a marble easy chair with a beer and a television. My xbox controller nearby. Maybe my guns in the corner and my Harley on it's kickstand of to the side.This way in a few thousand years if some archeologist digs me up he'll think I was like the local king or something. I'm sure my wife will never spend this type of loot on me when I'm dead however. She'll probably put me in cardboard and bury me in the yard.

Cremated, then buried inside a large statue of myself out in the middle of nowhere
Link Posted: 4/18/2006 1:45:49 AM EDT
My mother passed away recently; my sister and I made the choice to creamate (father is out of the picture).

A number of relatives live around the US midwest, but sister lives on the left coast and I am planning on the southwest US--so if she had been buried, it's not likely anyone would have visited the site often anyway.

A friend's mom recently passed away and they donated her body to the Mayo Clinic for study.  The clinic keeps her for one year, uses them for medical students to study and then creamted the remains at their expense and returns them to the family.  Seems like a good way to make sure your passing does someone some good.
Link Posted: 4/18/2006 1:56:47 AM EDT
Cremation for me.  Then I want my best friend to walk around with my urn and go to all the people I didn't care for in life and have him flick a pinch of ash into their face/eye and tell them "Smoky says bye!"

Speak for yourself, sir. I plan to live forever.

Ashes and an urn here.
Link Posted: 4/18/2006 3:13:25 AM EDT
We cremated my father according to his written instructions and scattered the ashes.  His sister was not too happy though and went ahead and bought a headstone for the family plots.
Link Posted: 4/18/2006 3:14:32 AM EDT
Cremated, and the ashes scattered on Hospital Point at USNA.

My wife and I want to be cremated.

definitely NOT embalmed in any way...I'm going out the same way I came into the world: 100% natural. ...ok, maybe I didn't enter the world 100% naturally...they had to cut me out because I refused to leave the womb) But it's gonna take the same amout of effort to get me to leave...

Frankly, once I am dead, I don't care if they throw my body into a ditch and let the gators eat it.
Link Posted: 4/18/2006 3:45:05 AM EDT
What do I want after I croak?  Hell, just toss me on top of the boneyard with all the deer and cow carcuasses. God knows I thrown my fair share on to that pile.

BTW Its in the middle fo the woods and has been used in said manner for close to 50 years now.  Figured the bones would be deeper than they ae but variments keep dragging them off and we burn it every so often and then lime it.

Cremated, with my ashes scattered at least a mile from the nearest church.

Someone once asked Winston Churchill whether it was best to cremate or bury a mother-in-law.  WSC replied "cremate...bury....take no chances."

How do the two compare price-wise?

That's a good idea.  

Honestly though - between cremation and burying?  How is there a choice?  Scatter my ashes somewhere fun, no reason for me to be taking up space underground.

Burial: Alot
Cremation: $3.00 + one match.

If it's good enough for a monk, it's good enough for me.

There is a significant difference.  If you choose burial, most states do not require the body to be embalmed.   You can be buried in a simple box/casket for alot less than if you have the mortician get involved.

Cremation is typically under $1,000 while a standard funeral is about $10,000.  The $10,000 includes body prep, casket, service, and burial plot.  

fugg it then....no reason to be a financial burden for nothing....roll me up and smoke me!

ETA: Should be a nice preview of what'd I'd be expecting soon...

Cremated. I don't want to be under ground, rotting.

Cremated. Scattered in the Smokies.

Home at last.

Embalmed, cremated, and buried.  Don't want them to take any chances...

i probably will be cremated.  i think that cemetaries are an incredible waste of space, and they're only going to get bigger.
