Or......

dipped in liquid nitrogen then shaken about till you turn to dust? (http://www.thesun.co.uk/article/0,,2-2006460692,00.html):eek:


I quite fancy the latter, it sounds like good fun.

Could be if you get to feel it.

I don't care what they do with me, I fancy the barbecue idea most, done to a crisp.

A few years ago I went to a cremation, my uncles, and for the after party thing they served up barbeque spare ribs.

It was pretty surreal watching his daughter with teary eyes tuck into those juicy ribs!:eek: :D

She evidently wasn't put off her food then.

I quite fancy the freeze dried method!

But don't tell my lads or they may just chuck me in the freezer. I could keep them all well fed all winter!:rolleyes:

If mummies are mummified, do daddies get daddified?

Doesn't matter to me, I'm not going to die.

I believe that I was put on this Earth to achieve certain things in my lifetime, and right now I'm so far behind that I may never die ;)

I'd go with buried on this one. I'd rather be in a casket than be burned.

Hi!

Cremated for me. Very practical and less expensive than a burial. They can scatter my dust anywhere and I don't have to worry that no one's going to visit my grave. :D

I never thought about the grave visiting thing. I don't fancy doing that, it's kinda weird going to a big field with loads on dead bodies in it and just sittting by one to have a chat. It's not my thing, spose it's too public and then there's all those graves that are untended, I always feel sorry for those dead people.

Welcome 10 cents. You can say hello in the inroduce yourself section if you like.

I think a lot of graves end up unattended, except on birthdays and stuff like that. Graveyeards are nice in a way for 'history' but I don't think I'd like the thought of being in one because they're so lonely. My side of the family get buried, but my husbands get cremated. His mum's just got a small plaque next to a rose bush with her ashes spread underneath, which is quite nice and more 'alive'. It doesn't matter so much if it's unattended because it's still 'living', so you get a sense of the person, not just a rotting body.

Ths might sound callous but I don't generally feel sorry for dead people. They are dead and have no worries any more. It's the living I feel sorry for, the ones who have lost loved ones, especially those who have lost people who went before their time. How do they cope with the loss for years and years. My wife's aunt was widowed in 1984, so she's had 23 years of missing her beloved hubby. She's not the sort to display it in public though, but I'm sure she has a greet every now and then. And she's not had any other partner since then (she's 87 now, bless her). I just know that I would find it really difficult to cope with and maybe people need somewhere where they believe the other person still is, so that they can "talk" to them. I suppose it's a kind of not letting go really. I think, though, that I would have somewhere in the house, or some quiet place we used to go, to sort of "link" with her if the worst happened. I don't know really. I hope I never find out.
