I can't read British so I have no idea what the accompanying text was, but what the heck was going on besides cutting up a dude and feeding him to birds?

I want to be shot out of a giant cannon - like the one out of Jules Verne's book. [:D]

Well, buzzards gotta eat, same as the worms... DK-Prof, I have thought about getting cremated and having my ashes loaded into a fireworks display. I didn't think about getting launched from Big Bertha....I wonder if they would bring the grand old gal out of retirement?

I would like to be creamated and have the ashes mixed with a couple of gallons of 110 octane gasoline, then be blown through the pipes of my Firebird.

The other thing that would be fun is to have your corpse mailed to someone you don't like. hehe - the more I think about it, the better an idea it is [:D]

Why'd they go to all that trouble of cutting it up? The Buzzards could have done that themselves. Wierd.

[shock] Why did the look on the corpses face keep changing. [shock] Man those vultures could have made quick work of that old dude without him being carved up into bite size pieces.

The buzzards would have striped the flesh from the bones. By cutting him up into small chunks it allows more birds to eat at once rather than fighting over the body. The bones are broken/ground down and mixed with the meat so that nothing is left. From what I understand it's a practice in cultures where wood is scarce.
