    Default Death and body parts

    Such a morbid and curious fascination with death. Shame i only have one chance to get it right, lol.

    So who is on the organ donor register?

    Have you considered giving your body parts to help live? Are their certain organs you wouldn't give?

    Also .. Anyone interested in giving their brain up for scientific purposes?

    Looking forward to the replies

    I'm an organ donor. I'd also love to donate my body to science. I want whatever is left over to be fertilizer. If my bones won't fertilize well, make something out of them. Bone is a pretty good crafting material.

    While I think cemeteries are nice looking, I hate them in principle. Giant waste of land, giant waste of bodies.

    Sure, I'm a donor. I won't be needing my organs much when I'm dead.

    I'm an organ donor. Same reasons.

    Not sure about burial method. There are some new ones showing up in the US, like promession [powderizing the body with liquid nitrogen, then pulverizing it] and resomation [dissolving the body in a water-lye mixture, retaining only crushed bone], but they're almost too processed for me. Maybe if they become more mainsteam, the thought would go down easier.

    Of course. FOR SCIENCE!

    I am interested in this topic, I mentioned some of the sinister or odd developments in the field a while back when I listened to podcasts with the author of Body Shopping, which I bought but havent read completely, there are major state and corporate interests involved in this field now and when you donate your organs to either medical or scientific purposes you could be inadvertently conscenting to private interests or corporations making mega bucks from you, none of your family or dependents will see a cent, what started out as a charitable gesture could result in seriums or gene therapies which will not be freely available, anything but.

    When I mentioned it before everyone sort of shrugged and where surprised at the idea of anyone being bothered by someone making a profit margin so long as it was "helping people" but I think it can be really scandalous, especially if it was someone who lived an impoverished or relatively poor life and their dependents, community or even nation (this is global in its scope) are short changed.

    So I'm really interested in it, I also am interetsed in the idea of an opt out scheme for organ donation rather than an opt in one, there are a lot of people who wouldnt worry about their organs being donated but who never bother to get around to registering or carrying the card. There are people who have a strong aversion to this for religious or political reasons, I know libertarians who find the idea of the state or anyone else having any claim to someones remains highly objectionable because of theorising about self-possession or self as property from which they derive their ideas. Although I dont get that, just exercise the opt out, individual sovereignty still exists in that arrangement.

    I think if it where managed correctly in a society like Britain's where a public health service exists if the research and applications of research where public property it could provide the service with market power enough to challenge the predatory private interests who want to make it disappear in some sort of politically sanctioned fire sale.

    I've read once that this famous porn star from England every, female star wants to be in a movie with, will have one of his "organs" go to the wax museum. Other than that I am too young to already think about what will be done with my organs after I am dead.

    I carry an organ donor card in my wallet (got it from the German Red Cross some years ago when I was donating blood).

    When I'm dead, I'm dead. If my organs can still be useful to somebody else, all the better.

    The same goes for a burial. What do I care where how and if I am buried or incinerated or eaten or whatever it will be once I am dead? That decision should be up to those who live to see the consequences (i.e. do my loved ones want a place they can go to? ) I would not want anybody to spend a fortune on that stuff out of some socially conditioned guilty conscience.

    My mother often says she wouldn't care if we buried her in a shoe box in the garden (which of course we wouldn't, don't worry) and my attitude is about the same.

    Yea and paranoia exists.

    No I stand by what a famous german comedian said: "if you aint contributing anything else to life, at least make sure you have a organ donor card."
