    It's so petty how, when people die, they want to go through this whole process, get embalmed and dressed up fancy and put in this nice big comfortable bed with a huge wooden top on. It's pathetic how our whole society cannot accept death. We think we can, but we are only fooling ourselves. Everytime a character dies on the television or in a video game, all it does is reinforce the concept that after death, there is something else. That when you die, things still go on. I'm going to have no ceremony. I know I'm going to die and I can accept it. Hopefully, I will die, lay and rot on the spot, just like intended. If that cannot be acomplished, buried whole, as I was the moment I died, right into the dirt, worms and all.
    How will you go?

  4. When i die, just leave me where i'm at. Even if its in a public place. Just spray some febreeze on me everytime the stench of my decaying body gets to be too much.

    Yeah, I agree that society has huge problems accepting the concept of death. I wonder if it's just because we can't deal with the possibility that one day we might cease to exist on this earth, cease to have control over our lives- the idea of 'not being' is so dreaded. Accepting the idea of death is, for some, the ultimate surrendering of control & freedom, but I read a quote somewhere (can't remember who from) that stated, 'once you accept the inevitability of your own mortality, you then gain ultimate freedom..' Funeral/death rites are more for the living, to help rid them of the fear & uncertainty that confrontation with death brings them.

    I plan to donate my body to science. And if there's nothing to be discovered then hell, let the worms make a meal of me.

    I already have my plan for when I die.

    I don't care what happens to most of my body, except for my skull. I want my skull to be removed from my skeleton after death, and I want it to be buried with the bones of a horse, positioned so my head appears to be the horse's head.



    If there is an afterlife, I'll be pissing myself with laughing a few thousand years later when archeologists dig up the man/horse skeleton and wonder what the hell is going on.

    You guys do realize that there are laws about how you can be buried, right? I'm pretty sure that in the US its illegal to have someone buried without a coffin. And you can't just bury someone anywhere you want. And in most cemetaries you can't bury human and animals bones together. When my great granduncle died the family actually had the funeral home sneak the body of his beloved poodle (who'd died right after he did) into the coffin with him so they could be buried together. People are so freakin' weird.

    i think cemeteries are a waste of space. i might donate my body to science as well. if not, a party in my behalf would be fitting.

    Nightowl-I don't care:)
    Trip and pork- It's very common that when you lying on the floor covulsing, vomiting and about to kick it, many doctors will actually leave you for dead, once finding out that your body is to be "donated to science". Apearantly, the hospital gets extra funding that way, or something of that nature. Please take this into consideration.

    I'd much rather be cremated than buried. Fire is so much cleaner and more purefying than laying underground, getting coated with blackish-green mould, getting bloated, slimy, dessicated, having bugs crawling through your empty eyesockets and laying eggs in the jelly that used to be your brain.

    haha these posts are so funny. good answers.

    i want pretty much the same as everyone else, a big fucking party where everyone gets hammered and tells funny stories about how cool i was. no being sad or whatever, be happy for me that i got to live this life. Then i want to be cremated but without the coffin, just my body. my dead naked body. whoever wants some can have it, put the rest in the ocean or something.

    i think the main reason people wanna get buried is because theyre relatives want a proper goodbye-or its just because they want to show they had money in life-but for me personally, i really dont care what happens to my body after i die-as long as my spirit lives on-peace ;)
