i plan on eating them, why waste good meat

Whatever floats your boat.

Personally I think it's the biggest waste of money on the planet next to Kerry's campaign.

I want to be dumped in the city landfill. Cemetaries are a waste of land. Coffins are a waste of wood.

When I die, if there's enough of me left, I want to be taxidermized in the classic "attacking bear" position.

Will you bury your loved ones, cremate them, or PRESERVE them?


Other.

Shovel, check. Uncover lid to septic tank, lift lid, insert <.......>, close lid, cover lid. problem solved.

I'd have em stuffed and mounted in poses that I remember them in.

Cremation and the ashes dumped at sea.

Lay me out in the forest for the scavengers to pick over. I'm dead, what do I care? No calling hours, no funeral, no coffin, no grave, no headstone. I just want to be left the F alone, in life and in death.

The wife wants to be cremated and put her ashes over her grandfathers grave.

I want to be embedded in a giant block of plastic and shot into space ... hopefully with enough propellent to get me outside of the solar system.

Life and land is for the living.
Cremate me and throw the ashes on my grandparent's graves.

Mine want to be buried.

I told them to take the cheapest option for me.

Having grandma mounted and in the living room? I think that's just SICK. Especially that thing with the pillows- that's just gross.
I think that wouldn't be so bad if it involved a glass case and a moseleum.


Speaking of which, how long does it take for someone to decompose with modern preservatives? (say, if one were to, say, exhume a parent deceased (died about 7 years ago) and put them in a moseleum. [I recall remember reading about a flooded cemetery and washed-up civil war soldiers being mistaken for very recent murder victims]).

let me bloat for a few days in the hot sun. Then fire me into a terrorist compound with a catapult!

I believe my parents wanted cremation. Myself, I'm the same way. Salvage whatever is useful for others, and hopefully the good Lord will accept my soul. I don't care what's left. If i croak someone gets $250000. throw a party, buy a beltfed, and set up a scholarship fund for hipwr junior/left junior hipower classification within the past five years shooters. Scatter my ashes in Saginaw Bay, and maybe in GNP. I love that place. But I got a lot of life to live yet, so I sure hope I'm not going anywhere.

Hopefully they will be doing the burying

Who cares? when they are gone they are gone.

Hubby wants a Viking funeral, but I think that's illegal these days. But either way, we both choose ash over silk lined box, thanks.

I wish we had something akin to those Capuchin Catacombs in Palermo, Sicily. Prop my mummified corpse up against the wall with a view of the other corpses, and I'm cool. And if my relatives want to come in and hang out -- maybe change my shirt from time to time -- so much the better. Yeah, that's the ticket.
Link Posted: 10/28/2004 10:38:34 PM EST
Hey..just do what Norman Bates did....steal the corpse and do some taxidermy! Then you have an excuse to kill people by saying it was your mother, who has really taken over half your brain!

burn, ashes, spread, done.

What do you guys think of having your ashes (carbon) turned into an artificial diamond for your widow? The process is not terribly expensive and should be very inexpensive by the time I'm ready Lord willing.

Just a thought.

A dry cedar pyre for me otherwise, or the crematorium if they must.

Funerals are for the living, not the dead. Having said that, I'll do whatever they want me to. Case in point:

My mother has an interesting request for her funeral - one that includes my arranging for bail money beforehand. A number of years ago, she heard that some guy jumped out of an airplane in a tuxedo and was supposed to land at a new car dealership to celebrate it's grand opening. He missed. Instead, he landed at a funeral, and actually knocked the coffin over.

Upon hearing this, my mother decided that's how she wants her funeral to go down. No joke. She made me promise I'd jump out of a plane in a tuxedo and knock her coffin over. This is going to take some practice.

Another interesting note: Neither my mother or my grandmother have decided what to do with my Grandfather's ashes. My mom's idea is to have them placed in .22 casings and worn as a charm bracelet. I thought it was a cool idea.

For me and my funeral: I don't really give a rat's ass. They can do whatever helps them grieve. What do I care? I'll be dead!

I've cremated all of my loved ones, and I have learned one thing from it - no matter how tight you tie and bind them, they'll still struggle and scream for a few minutes anyway...
Link Posted: 10/29/2004 5:29:40 AM EST
I have one of two plans in mind. Cremate them, put them in the back of the truck with the box lid open and drive around until the ashes have all blown out. Throw the box away at McDonalds and order lunch at the drive by window.

Or...strip their body, remove identifying marks and leave them beside the road in another state. To them, it'll be just another unsolved death investigation. They'll pay for the burial or cremation or what ever.

Yeah I know. I'm just a sentimental kind of guy.

I'd prefer to be cremated and have my ashes spread at the Boy Scout camp I went to while growing up, the rifle or shotgun range if possible.

Then there will really be a ghost haunting the place.
