I really don't give a fuck. I won't be around to know about it anyway. They could let necrophiliacs have their way with my corpse for all I care.

Does anyone find it crazy to want to be buried at sea?
It would be cheaper, and it's stands for ideals I hold; my matter would be added back to the environment in a much more natural way... rather than preserved with poisons or burnt to dust.

The idea that my loved ones would see the box bob for a few moments, then bubble and disappear from sight seems like a much more meaningful and symbolic break from this world than any other option I could think of.

I'd really choose niether. I want to donate by body to science. At least some med school students will learn something from my body after I'm gone.

But given that I only had 2 options, I chose burried. I just think it'd be neat when future people dig me up. Just because. Don't ask questions.  :wink:

I don't see advantages or disadvantages to either, mainly because I'm going to be dead anyway. If it's cheaper for my family, I'd go with cremation, or if it's possible for future life to find and study my body, I'd go with burial.

Realistically, I might donate my body to science, as that would actually seem to serve some purpose rather than just giving my body back to the earth immediately. It's going to go back to the environment eventually, why not let someone living learn from it first?

I really don't care. it's just a fucking body, and it won't mean anything when i've left it for good.

I'd like to be cremated and dumped in a river... so I can return to the ecosystem that I most appreciate. Those damn fish can have a taste of me after years of me eating them :laugh:

That's the way the Muslims do it I believe. They wrap the person in a white sheet and bury them, or at least that's what they did at the one Muslim funeral I went to.

Much more logical anyhow, why spend hundreds of dollars on a finely furnished wooden box for a dead person when you'll never get anything from it? Just put them back in nature, you don't need to box them up first.

I actually want to be made into a diamond.Has anyone seen this.They turn the carbon from your body into a diamond then mount it in a ring or a necklace or whatever you choose.I think they said its about 5(not sure about this part though).The thing i saw about it said it produced a bllue diamond.Pretty cool IMO.

Yeah, I saw that shit. The diamond that they showed seemed kindof yellow. No matter, it would still be a cool way to be remembered. As a kid, I used to wear this black T-shirt with white letters on it that said "I'm going to be a diamond some day". It'd be cool to make it happen.
