    Having been to the funeral of my Great Aunt today my mind has turned to the rather morbid thought of whether I'd like to be cremated or buried when I pass away.



    So what would you prefer? Have you even thought about it?

    There is a third alternative, of course, but I suppose it is taboo.

    I want anything that still works or is of benefit to anyone taken and then I may as well be burned, graveyards are a waste of space.

    Cremated - that way, a little piece of me can fulfil my dream to go into space.

    This is your eternity - not a time to be a cheapskate.

    I fully intend to have my family pay thousands to have a few grams of my ashes sent into space.
