I thought I'd share this BBC article about the new Liquefaction Unit .
I've always regretted that the only possiblites offered for exiting the stage, were tightly linked to religions. (cremation, coffins ...)
This liquefaction unit seems to be more ecological, and could please the atheists, as it is more of a raw return to nature, whereas cremation has kept a very strong religious link.
But I do admit I'd still prefer being fed to the lions.
Edit: fixed link, sorry, one too many slashes.
Heh, seriously, it took me about 3 minutes there to compose myself enough to hit the Reply button.
I'd be happy if someone just threw me in the woods. Though ideally, I'd prefer NOT being the victim of a serial murderer to accomplish this....
Why can't someone just build some of those disintegration booths they had on Eminiar VII in Star Trek!? Those were awesome.
Yeah, body farms are pretty awesome, but I don't want people messing with my corpse...
Maybe one day when I'm old and tired, after deciding I've had enough, I'll just walk myself into the woods one winter and sit in a little patch of snow until I fall asleep.
Not sure what those desintegration booths looked like. But what that swedish biologist in the articles proposes seems pretty close to that. Freeze in liquid nitrogen, and then vibrate into tiny pieces.
"Promession".. it's even got a cool name!
I don't want to be buried after I die. I don't want to be cremated either. I want to be blowed up.
"There he goes! That's him all over..."
Yes, George Carlin was my hero too. More seriously, I really could not care less what is done with the leftovers after I die. It's just meat. Nothing to do with me once I am no longer in there.
Oh, it's really hard not to laugh
When we make such a subtle gaff,
And get buried with a curse -
Or perhaps something worse:
An epithet as our epitaph.
