When you die, do you want to be cremated or buried?
I'll go with buried!
and possibly reanimated
How you plan on doing that eh
or something useful
thats quite smart
you will be in the sandwhich and every single one of us.
whos gonna make the sandwich?
we might be in trouble then
i'll let my executors decide
The tables have turned.
well you could've been clearer
so that would not be my choice! :(
graveyards are terribly depressing, I wouldn't want my family and friends to have to go to one.
but u also put down the ashes in the grave! Where would you want them to have it?
Stuffed. Into classic Battlestar Galactica death pose, natch
as being dead means i won't be particularly aware of what's going on. Maybe someone could think of something particularly unorthodox and exciting to do with my corpse so i get in the paper and go out with a bang... unless i'm survived by people who it would upset
Rotting is pretty gross and undignified, but then being incinerated is pretty... final. I guess it's all pretty final.
where do you end then? Where does ur family go visit u?
where they're keeping me all full of liquid nitrogen in a big fridge. dixons?
and kept at museums as an example of the perfect being.
*cremated. but not kept in a jar on the mantle piece. ill decide what later*
cremated, then have my ashes put in a giant firework which is then let off. that'd be cool
Or burned. I'd prefer it if there was nothing left of me, I think.
where I'm cremated, my ashes are taken to be thrown to the wind on a cliff, but they fly back in the wind and blacken the faces of my familial successors. Other than that, I really don't care. The only thing I don't like the idea of is my corneas being transplanted into another person - that's the only thing I haven't ticked on my driving license organ donation form.
No nasty maggots are getting anywhere near me, no siree.
out of spite
The increase incident of people being cremated is damaging the environemnt. When you are buried, detritivores - i.e. maggots, bacteria, can decompose you and pass out essential minerals and shit to the soil, which can become fertile/ leach out into the sea and pass to toher area making arable farming/ greener pastures. Cremation prevents this.
So, YOU'RE KILLING THE ENVIRONMENT
(P.S Im getting meself cremeated :D)
If so, exciting stuff! :D
Yep, trust me, im going to be a scientist.
(On a related note, the diaper industry is also KILLING THE ENVIRONMENT. In its quest to block out waste seepage and smell, it is creating diapers out of plastics that cannot be broken down. Now baby faeces is very rich in nutrients, and the enviroment cannot harvest this to thrive...)
faling that, exploded in a Really Big amateur rocket over the houses of parliament.
