    Those Capsula Mundi things--I don't know. I like the idea of the tree and all, but I don't want to see my grandparent or parent in a garbage bag in the fetal position, you know?
    It does look oddly like an egg yolk barely hanging from the shell. But I like the idea nonetheless. The Kinkaraco shrouds also appeal to me. What did you think of the Promessa AB Ecological funeral?

    That was really interesting--it's kind of strange to think that your entire remains would be gone within a few months, though. There's something emotionally weird to me about that. There are things I wouldn't mind for myself, but I wouldn't want for my loved ones.

    I'm not a fan of the cardboard coffins, though. It makes me feel like I'm burying a family member in an under-the-bed box.

    I want to be buried. (and wearing a coat, don't even ask)
    It was watching Bill Murray in 'Scrooged' where he is stamping out the flames in the coffin. Seriously head fk'd me.

    My parents enquired about a natural burial site, i wouldn't mind going there.
    Very beautiful and tranquil.

    The plan so far is:

    Taken from hospital to burial ground in an estate car. (I'll be in a biodegradable bag)
    No one wearing black.
    Shove me in the ground.
    Down the pub.
    Few drinks on me.
    Only stipulation is i want Pachelbel cannon and YMCA played.
    Everyone go home and get on with life.
    Done.

    i like the shroud idea. the egg things are a little much for me. would you have to quickly position the corpse after death, before rigor mortis sets in? or is that less of a big deal than i thought..

    Everyone knows real dinosaurs don't get cremated unless an ominous cataclysm happens; like a meteorite hits Earth. Hence, Falcarius wants a natural burial like other proper dinosaurs gone by did, because otherwise it means something unfortunate has most likely happened to him.

    Bury me in my birthday suit, or scatter my ashes in the Okanogan Valley so my DNA will mix with all that wine... Drink up!

    Burn me and sprinkle my ashes in the ocean at night if you're feeling romantic.
    Or burn me and discard my ashes in the nearest trash receptacle. It's efficient and saves space/time, really.

    What do I care, I'm dead. Rituals are for the living, so do as you please with my remains, as you most likely will regardless.

    Im going with all of the above. Thus far, I want as much of myself as possible donated to help others, then cremated, and placed in an urn and buried with a nice traditional headstone. That way, I don't take up much space, and I'm efficient, with a bit of tradition still throughout it. I think that best resembles who I am anyways. I'd like to go visit the people that were close to me when they die. and I'd like a headstone for people to (maybe.. if they want to I guess) come visit me.

    Bonus: No chance of me becoming a zombie and eating my loved ones if I'm cremated.
