    For some reason I think about my own death quite a lot. It depresses the shit out of me sometimes to the point I cry thinking that--knowing that one day this all coems to an end and shortly after that you're pretty much just gone and forgotten..Like I said..It just depresses me severely at times.

    But then on a sunnier side, I like to consider my options as to what i'd like done with my body left here..Sure, you can do burial, cremation, etc..But Scotty from Star Trek had that cool idea about having his ashes unleashed in space..that's awesome! Even though I guess it didn't work out so well for him and all, but in theory..cool.

    I kinda like the idea of just cremated and have the ashes spread on some hill side on a bright sunny day with a soft breeze sorta thing..return to nature. Then I have bizzare ideas of being buried with a cd player or whatever we'll have at that point with an external power plug plugged in somewhere and my favorite music just on continuous loop--that'll freak out the groundskeeper late at night..lol
    I also have no problem with the organ donor bit either..hey, if I can still help somone, great..

    Anyways...ever consider it? What are your plans? Realistic..and fantasy?

    I want to be buried without cremation, just in case I can come back as a zombie.

    I'm not a religious man, but most of my family is, and my mom's side of the family has their own community church with its own graveyard space. I've always felt like it would mean something if I was buried there.


    Oh right, fantasy. Made into a taxidermy statue that my grandkids are forced to keep in their house. :D

    I want everything that can be donated to help other people donated and what's left to be cremated. I don't want a funeral or anything, I want to leave this world as I lived it and this is just a blip on the screen.

    But I know what you mean Sami, lately with my friends and family members passing away it's got me thinking about death myself. Sometimes it just about makes me puke b/c of the fear of the unknown of what is next in life. I'm not a spirtual person at all, I do go to chruch occasionally but do I believe in all that.....I have no idea.

    I want to be encased in a giant tube of formaldehyde, floating in a fetal position with bubbles coming up from the bottom and surrounded by a dim green light.

    I'm with this fellow. Anything to keep me away from life support and from taking up space when I no longer need it.

    I don't care... they can either bury me or cremate me.

    Fantasy-wise... cremate me and send my ashes up into outer space.

    As a firm believer in the Hereafter, death doesn't scare or concern me that much. Life and how it's lived concerns me far more. I haven't really decided what's to be done with my body when I'm gone, other than cremation to save my family money and time. I figure they should do with my ashes as they wish, since it will no longer matter to me.

    Otherwise, scientists can resurrect me as a cyborg zombie with chainsaw arms. That would rule.
