"After being encapsulated in the fetal position, the deceased is buried and either a tree or tree seed is planted above their capsule. The project’s site already has a number of trees to choose from."

Honestly, I think it's an awesome idea. Restore trees instead of cutting them for coffins, your loved ones will "still be with you", in a way.

We put way too much effort and energy into the whole burial thing...

The people closely associated with the namesake of female canines are suffering from a nondescript form of lunacy.

I saw a movie about this once. Wolverine becomes a tree.





Me? I think I'd like to be eaten by Wu's pigs.

I want to be plasticised, stuffed with actuators and hydraulics, and controlled with PLCs... Then my family can sit me out on Halloween to scare the shit out of people.

You're already scaring me. Gasp

RE: Forget Coffins! Here's an interesting new idea.
Turn your ashes into shotgun shells, and have your loved ones let you go with a bang!

http://myholysmoke.com/About.html

About Us

We offer a way to honor your deceased loved one by giving or sharing with him or her one more round of clay targets, one last bird hunt, or one last stalk hunt.

The Concept

Several years ago I was talking with my friend and co-worker at work one evening. We were discussing the passing of one of our relatives and the topic of conversation turned to our own demise and whether we preferred burial or cremation. I told my friend that I had some cost, waste of space and ecological issues with burials and that I thought I wanted to be cremated and in some fashion, have my ashes tossed into a river or spread through the woods.

My friend smiled and said "You know I've thought about this for some time and I want to be cremated. Then I want my ashes put into some turkey load shotgun shells and have someone that knows how to turkey hunt use the shotgun shells with my ashes to shoot a turkey. That way I will rest in peace knowing that the last thing that one turkey will see is me, screaming at him at about 900 feet per second."

I realized that my friend was describing almost exactly how I wanted my ashes to be spread. How perfect to have my family and friends honor me by using shotgun shells with a little bit of my ash in each one. Whether my shells get shot at sporting clays or live birds or put on the shelf, even in death I could be ecologically sound and useful.


From that statement, we started a company that can take your or your loved ones ashes and produce an eco-friendly way to spread or use those ashes while conducting a favored activity.
With care and reverence, we can place the ashes of your loved ones into almost any caliber or gauge of ammunition.

The Reality

Holy Smoke is a company that was started by two state law enforcement officers. They have successfully transformed their model working relationship (as game wardens) into another successful working relationship as co-owners of Holy Smoke LLC.

Holy Smoke realized there was a need for an individual's choice in how his or her life could be remembered or celebrated. What better way to be remembered than in a celebration of a life well spent.

A second important need is cost concerns for the decedent's family. The services provided by Holy Smoke are a cost effective memorial for your outdoors person.

A third and equally important need was for the end result to be ecologically friendly and sound. There is a much smaller ecological footprint caused by our service.

Now you can have the peace of mind that you can continue to protect your home and family even after you are gone.

What you get for the standard price of (call for pricing) -

For the shotgunner:

250 shotshells (with your loved ones ashes loaded per shell) shipped in fifty-round, labeled, plastic shotshell carriers with handles.

For the rifle shooter:

100 cartridges in standard calibers (with your loved ones ashes loaded in each cartridge) shipped in labeled, plastic cartridge carriers.

For the pistol shooter:

125 cartridges in standard calibers (with your loved ones ashes loaded per cartridge) shipped in labeled, plastic cartridge carriers.

RE: Forget Coffins! Here's an interesting new idea.
I have decided! Before I die, I will preserve my consciousness onto a computer and with the empty husk of a body I leave behind, I will leave it in a burial pod!
My mind and consiousness transfered and preserved forever in cyber space and my body will return to nature as a tree!

Maybe I will be able to get my mind into a mobile robotic brain and visit my Tree!

Wouldn't THAT be something!?

RE: Forget Coffins! Here's an interesting new idea.
I was just reading a bit more and yeah, it does sound cool.

And it's still much better than the mushroom thing that still just grosses me out.

But as if to knock me down, reality came around
And without so much as a mere touch, cut me into little pieces
