Death- Green Burials- Mushroom suits
Have you thought about what you want done with your body?
Do you feel we are connected to nature and the earth and there are some ways that are better than others.

I just heard of the mushroom suit. Sounds like a great idea to me. There is also a green burial place near here that doesn't use embalming, vaults or typical caskets. Instead they use fabric, sturdy cardboards, thin wood, wicker.

Ideally, if I were rich enough, I'd want my cremated remains to be launched into space and scattered. Realistically, I'll probably donate my body to science. Burial always seemed excessively morbid to me and reeks of religiosity. At the very least, by body will be cremated and scattered in the sea.

Excuse me, I'm making perfect sense. You're just not keeping up.

You can do with my body whatever you like - I won't be around to give a shit.

I want to be fed to vultures.

Realistically though i'm getting cremated and scattered in my favorite ravine.

The requirement of evidence to back your claim does not disappear because it hurts your feelings, reality does not care about your feefees.

I'm with itsnotmeitsyou, cremation and then scattering me over my favorite reef, and preferably to that having a diver take the ashes down and release them into the Gulfstream waters.

I want to donate my body to science,or donate my organs to people who need it and then get cremated.

I don't really like going outside.
It's too damn "peopley" out there....

RE: Death- Green Burials- Mushroom suits
from what I've heard the green burials are the most eco friendly......although I don't know how that compares with a burial at sea

Consider


FC- curious why you chose cremation then spread on a reef rather than just overboard?

I'd want my body to be thrown into a black hole.
(After they clone it, though.)
