What are you plans for what happens to your body after you die? Going with a traditional burial? Cremation? Do you have your cemetery plot already picked out? 

Anyone opting for a Viking funeral?

Cremated, don’t care where they stick me.

I'm going to say cremated since the idea of being buried and cemeteries are dated and not sustainable.

I'm also getting cremated. Spread my ashes between my grandparents property (though, hopefully will be mine when I pass) and the Boundary Waters.

I really dislike viewing hours and funerals with open caskets. The sight of the dead body and the smells are ... not pleasant.

May donate body for science; the liver will be an interesting study.

I'd say that brain would be more interesting tbh.

Cremated just to preserve space on this earth. I dont believe in any kind of afterlife, so frankly couldnt care less what ultimately happens to me or where I am buried or spread. But, for the sake of humanity, I'll get cremated.

Cremated. No one I cared about is forgotten because there's not a physical place to go "see" them. The handful of people who care about me will remember (hopefully just the good parts).

This is how I feel, also.

Cremated.

I want my ashes spread at a specific beach. I don't want to be in the ground where family feels obligated to go visit, and I don't want to be sitting on a mantle of one of my children. Spread my ashes at my happy place and then have a drink.

What if our thoughts on the afterlife are just slightly off? What if your getting into heaven or hell didn't depend on your beliefs or how good you are? What if hell is just people that have been cremated and the fires of hell are the soul feeling the fires of the furnace?

Well I'd suggest finding alternatives in theology since land is finite and you cant bury people forever?

Cremated. I hate old cemeteries with worn out headstones. They’re going to have to be dug up eventually anyhow.  My skeleton can’t take that kind of abuse (history of neck and back problems).


If Johnny Depp’s career manages to survive - a big “if” - I may have him do for me what he did for Hunter Thompson.  He fired that SOB’s ashes out of a powerful cannon. That’s be cool.

Interesting. OTOH, what if cremation frees the soul from the body and the buried are stuck for eternity in a box?

Lol, buried people would be stuck there just hoping that building Frankenstein's Monsters gets back into vogue, so a grave robber will dig them up and give their soul a chance to ascend.

Buried but I’ll wear a mask
