    Eco-Friendly Funeral (and full of awesome, too)

    This rocks. I think this is how I want my collection of atoms to be disposed of when it's all over:

    Forever trying to find a cure for the Dunning-Kruger Effect.

    Considering that I'd like to be cremated, I don't konw why this gives me the willies, but it does. Cool and strange at the same time.

    Ha, that's great! Bonus points if your loved ones could be the one to smash your body.

    But I'm still sticking with getting my ashes shot out of a cannon, Hunter S. Thompson-style.

    I'm not a fan of this since I work for the largest casket company in the world. I say buy lots of caskets!

    This really should be thought of when a disaster happens instead of mass burial graves.


    I don't know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everyone.

    Re: Eco-Friendly Funeral (and full of awesome, too)

    I prefer that my body be pumped full of radiation so that they have to store me in a barrel for 10,000 years before I can be safely disposed of. But that's just me.

    Plus, unlike burial or cremation, it's also guaranteed to destroy killer robots.
    They should have stuck around for the last 15 minutes of T2.

    Do you have to be shattered, or can you just be hung on the wall Hans Solo style?

    My plan is to be loaded in a case of 12 gauge shells and be used during duck season in and around Ruthven.

    C'mon, think outside the box. Don't be hampered by what you assume a funeral has to be like.
