What do you want done to your body when you die?

Putting my dog down recently got me thinking about mortality and I decided to let my family know what I want done when I die (which shouldn't be for like, 20 years). I want what's called a "green" funeral. That is to be buried, un-embalmed in a grave with no casket, wrapped just in a shroud. It's environmentally friendly, and practical measure both financially and logically. I mean, I'm going to rot anyway, why take a casket with me & leak chemicals into the ground? What about you? Have you thought about it? What were your conclusions?

What. The. Fuck.

Green funerals? I didn't even know they existed, but the very idea pisses me off. To offset your hippie crap, I will be embalmed with nuclear waste and have an open casket for a week.

Fucking green funeral. Holy shit.

Normally I'd get pissed at someone calling me a hippie, but I'm really high right now so I'm going to let it slide.

I want to be burned with all my belongings so I'll have lots of toys to play with in the afterlife.

I want my casket made with holes on the top and bottom. I'm also going to request to not have a chapter insert.

Either cremate me, or leave my body in the woods for the critters.

I get that this is a movie quote, but please don't do it literally. The hours ate up in the murder investigation could seriously cripple your city. Think of the children who could be molested due to less officers on the street.

Hopefully we've convinced you to go out in a more fiscally-aware way. *

Just out of curiosity, what kind of chemicals do you think a casket leaks into the ground?

The drugs & chemicals that are used to embalm the body. My primary reason isn't environmental, it's financial.

"I don't want no fancy funeral, just one like ol' Kind Tut!"

Really though, I would like my body donated to whoever could use it. Even the military to test land mines or whatever.

I also heard the guy who did that "Bodies" exhibition was going to do something similar with a more sexual theme, might be nice to be going down on some chick for all eternity (my luck I'd be on the receiving end in the gay section.)

I just think it's stupid to have a 6'X3' piece of land to use for the rest of your death.

That's a good point I forgot to mention. I want to donate any organs I can before being taken off life support. Odds are only my eyes will be good, but hey, every little bit helps.
