Cremation is so 18th century...

Burials.. "boooring"...

I just realized i want my body sealed in a rigid plasic full body case. Full of some embalming flud and taken to space and shot towards another galaxy.

Of course i know it would take billions of light years to even get close to anything out there, but hey... all i have is time...

In Japan they have been coming up with ways of creative "burials"

Because cremation isn't very socially accepted in Japan and because space is so limited they have had to get creative with burials.

There was a company that was going to do moon burials and space capsules where you would just be floating out there. I am not sure what happened with that though.

I have often thought that if cremation is not the chosen method of disposal, why not bury the stiffs vertically? It takes up less space, the grave could be dug in seconds using a large drill, and instead of a coffin a nice biodegradable cardboard tube could be used.

Personally I am going to be cremated, there are too many documented cases of coffin lids with bloody scratch marks on the inside for me to want to take even the most minuscule risk of death being wrongly diagnosed.

Why even use a drill, why not screw the coffin into the ground directly? There was a patent granted for a screw coffin recently, this could just be for you:

My wife asked me where I wanted to be buried. I told her "Surprise me!"

All I ask is that I be cremated and not be put on a shelf somewhere. Go spread my remains in a field, ocean, landfill, etc., I don't care where. Boxes in the ground and a headstone are a total waste of space. Think about it. 50 years, 150 years, 250 years after I'm dead what is the point of that? No thanks, the traditional burial is not a responsible choice IMHO.

yeah... i mean, do you have relatives you visit who are 4th generation behind you? No.

bloody scratch marks on coffin lids just made me freak out...

bwwaaa... just got the willies...

all of a sudden.."yaaaawwwwn... oh geez... felt like i died... that must have been one massive nap...

[bang head on coffin lid] Ouch....#*$!? i cant see... where is my desk lamp?..."
