    I'm self centered milennial so cryogenics is definitely the way to go.

    I would like to be cremated, and then hopefully have my ashes scattered somewhere remote and peaceful, where people rarely go

    I don't even know. The thought of death scares me so I try to avoid thinking about it

    As a follower of the zero waste living philosophy, it's only right that I'm reduced to ashes or dust i suppose

    I've thought about cryonics before, and have come to the conclusion that it's snake-oil.

    I'll be donating my organs and body.

    As an Atheist, I believe I must be buried or I won't be following the teachings of the greats. Cremation is an act no true Atheist would do.

    But burning yourself to ashes is a waste when instead you could be used as fertiliser :P

    I'd like to be buried and allow all the atoms in my body to return and contribute to the nutrient cycle via the earth

    Yeah you are right actually. I've convincingly changed my decision. I shall be buried.

    tbh I don't really care... whatever happens i'll go with that.
