    Scattering your ashes on the garden would be just as efficacious. Depends on whether the soil needs more acid or more ash I suppose, in each case.

    There may be some merit to the process, however I dislike the idea of the residue being poured directly into the municipal water supply.

    Sounds like a cool idea, would also help the environment in some way. But i'll stick with the whole organ donor thingy.

    But cremation would have created half again as much greenhouse gas, used seven times the energy, and released more mercury.

    I have told everybody close to me, including the girl I'm with now; There ain't nobody reducing ME to ashes, or for that matter, turning me into liquid. Just put me into a mausoleum with some other people, then go. Either that, if funeral costs get too expensive, just stick a ham bone up my ass, and leave me for the dogs.

    Personally I quite like the idea of burial at sea. Well, they call it burial, in reality, you're just chucked over the side for the fish to eat.

    I will die alone in a filthy squat. I will have 20 cats who form a guard of honour around my corpse until they get bored and eat me.

    For some reason when I read liquified compost the first thing that comes to mind is pig effluent.

    ekkkk...ummm.....no thanks.

    That's municipal WASTE supply, not water.

    Still, our sewage systems are over-taxed as it is. Are they computing sewage treatment costs and energy in their "savings" equations?

    so you're opting for the Benny Hill package?
    will you be providing your own cats, or hiring a service to deliver specially trained cats?

    I dont really like the fact that we as humans litter this planet with our corpses, much less our burial mausoleums. Its a waste of space and only serves to comfort the living. I would prefer to set my happy ass on fire while Queen plays in the background (another one bites the dust) and people laughing, singing and having a great time. I dont want a single sad fucking tear. Then, take that ash and use it to plant a Joshua tree near my family so they may swing upon it after I'm gone. That will be their solace. That is ofcourse after everything I have in my body that can be used is gone. Why the fuck would I take my organs with me if someone else could use them?

    I like just about all of this.
    Except I would like a tear or two ... because tears are great things when they come from real feeling.
    The Joshua tree ... real nice touch, Intrigue.
