    Drag my fat ass down to the canal, have a priest utter a few words and dump me in...let the tide do the rest.

    Once I'm dead I'm just meat. Harvest whatever organs/tissue are useful to someone who's still alive, then do whatever with the rest. Right now my will is to be cremated, but if there's a more environmentally friendly option that isn't absurdly expensive I'll take it.

    i'm in negotiations with a funeral home for the disposal of my body. i want a cremation and then i told them i didn't care what they did with the ashes. they could toss them in the trash or turn on the garden hose at the curb and wash them into the storm drain. i figure that's green but they're balking at the plan.

    My wife was cremated a year ago. Comes my turn I want to be put in the urn with her. But, that's just me. Jack.

    I worked on the crematorium at Woodlawn cemetery and was surprised at how much was left over. They had a couple of barrels of metal implants and a huge grinder for the unburnt bone. Some families would use fancy caskets and the smart families would use a cardboard box.

    The more I'm thinking about it (and the costs), the more I'm liking the whole pile-of-woodchips thing.

    why not? I don't need my body after I die and if my wife can grow nice tomatoes or something she may as well get some more use out of me...assuming she gets my dirt pile back. If the state gets my dirt pile, then no deal, not giving those f***ers anything more, rather burn me pyre made from tires.

    It was low-hanging fruit. Too tempting to resist.

    I used to be all about getting buried, but she convinced me to be cremated when she made me realize the last thing I do in this world is piss off a Liberal.
