    how do you want to be *ahem* disposed of? buried/cremated/other form? (though i don't know of any...mummification perhaps?) and why?

    i was talking to my friend about this today...i haven't decided on how i want to be disposed of yet, i'd be cremated but then i'd contribute to global warming...if i was buried it'd be too much of a hassle for my family to keep looking after my grave though, i don't want birds pooing all over my grave too

    I want to be buried, and that's all. I don't believe in afterlife or anything like that so just a simple end will do and that's that!

    I don't see why we can't use crematees as a form of fuel. It would be their last way to serve a purpose to the world.

    Personally I'd want to be frozen in a glass coffin in the family vault I'll begin.

    I want to burried as it seems a bit more natural and less like you're dead, the thought of cremation just scares me. In fact death scares me and growing old. I want to be 21 for ever. I really don't want to get old.

    I want to be buried and preferably not cut up by either surgeons or coroners.
    I don't want the funeral to be a boring, boring affair either and I want to plan it meticulously before I go out, if I can.

    I am a semi control freak (only a little bit) but I can't stand the fact I won't be there for my own funeral. I will never know it it went to plan.

    what if you are in spirit though? if you are as you say, a semi control freak, then surely your soul will want to know what happens to all your stuff, your family, your friends etc and will decide to hang around for a bit before going off to wherever souls go (assuming you believe in souls of course)

    I am not sure what I believe, I don't believe or disbelieve it as I don't have any evidence either way. The same goes for god, how do I know if exists or not? For this reason I don't have an opinion although I would like to think he exists.

    Well I think it's the perfect way to go. If you're funny in real life, you should be funny in death. I definitely want my friends pissing themselves over my jokes when I kick the bucket.

    Possibly, I am certainly not religous but I do believe in some kind of afterlive, too many things I know have happened for them not be. It also makes the thought of death much easier to deal with in my mind. If their does turn out to be know afer life I will never know so its easier to believe in it.

    how do you want to be *ahem* disposed of? buried/cremated/other form? (though i don't know of any...mummification perhaps?) and why?

    i was talking to my friend about this today...i haven't decided on how i want to be disposed of yet, i'd be cremated but then i'd contribute to global warming...if i was buried it'd be too much of a hassle for my family to keep looking after my grave though, i don't want birds pooing all over my grave too
    I personally want to be vacuum desicated and my remains put into small discs and sold off.

    I think i'd like to be cremated.... and then have my ashes scattered into the sea. I love being near the water (maybe something to do with being cancerian?) so I'd like the sea breeze to set me free before returning to the ocean.
