show me: Who cares where the lump of organic material that looks sort of like what used to be a person rots? I've never understood this.
Smoking GNU: How about cremated and the ashes being in the next hellfire missile shot from a drone in the middle east? Go out with a bang.

KatjaMouse: show me: Who cares where the lump of organic material that looks sort of like what used to be a person rots? I've never understood this.My fiancee and I have butted heads over this kind of discussion though. My philosophy is that in my lifetime I have consumed the flora and fauna of this planet and have cultivated an ecosystem of little micro organisms thanks to that transfer of energy. Why should I deprive other kinds of flora and fauna from benefiting from me? And to speed along the process I have stated to him and my loved ones that I don't want to be pumped full of chemicals and preservatives and don't require a lead lined, air tight coffin.Fiancee thinks it's still a waste of real estate (even though most cemeteries that cater to my kinds of wishes tend to be used as park land). So he said if I die before him he's going to cremate me "but it's ok because I'm going to spread your ashes under a sapling somewhere."Nice to know I need to do an extra legal step for these kinds of wishes.

cptjeff: They're dead, they have no way of knowing....So yeah- naked in a hole, or cool gothic cemetery with mausoleum and statuary where people actually wander around. Just no suburban mediocrity, please.
