If money were no issue, would you choose an unusual "disposal" of your body after death or stick with the classic burial/cremation?

Put me in a vacuum and launch me into outer space. Hopefully, some advanced alien race will find me and bring me back to life.

Depends on what my future spouse wants. I'd just want my body to be next to theirs.

If money were no issue, I would fund a billion-dollar research into longevity. If we could only stop bombing our enemies, we would have figured this out along time ago.

I want to be cremated and have my ashes flung in the faces of my enemies.

Maybe you can be buried, uncovered, and then have your disassembled body thrown at your enemies. It would hurt more.

I want my body to be brought out to sea, weighted, and sunk so the fish can eat my body and recycle me.

I would build myself a massive, granite pyramid

After medical science gets done, cremation or burial.

I always thought I would like to have the traditional mid 1800's pine box as depicted in western movies, but the wife wont let me.

Cremate and send me up in a firework.

I just want my family to mourn in peace. I would want a pretty low-key funeral.

I plan on donating myself to science... Cadaver for some med student

It would be cool if my ashes could bloom into a tree that future generations could build a treehouse in.

That's awesome. And now I have to follow you for letting me know :-)

Then you can possess the tree and whisper disturbing things to children

I really don't care, I'll hopefully be dead.

The remains of a deceased person deserve respect.

I'd much rather be a fertilizer that nourishes some environment than in a box taking up land in some hole. I hate how our primary body exposal processes(cremation/burial) remove humans from the circle of life.

Eventually the coffin decomposes and we ARE returned to the environment. "From dust you were created, and to dust you will return."

RoDe Latinus wordsus

My point is that from embalming the dead to putting them in sealed boxes in the ground, the intention is to avoid decaying and naturally returning to the circle of life. Most coffins buried nowadays are sealed in concrete vaults btw.

Reeze The TARDIS

Oh, interesting. I didn't know that they were sealed in concrete. I think we put the dead in a coffin because as long as we know their bodies are there, it's like they aren't really gone.

Blast me into space. Then allow me to re-enter the atmosphere as a shooting star.

There's a place in Springfield, MO that turns your ashes into powder for fireworks that your family gets to design and set off. That's what I would do.

I'm telling anyone who's left to just do whatever's cheapest and pocket as much of the life insurance and estate as possible. I'm just a corpse at that point you could just toss me out in the woods for all it really mattered.

I'm going to be dead. I don't right care what they do with my corpse. Whatever's cheapest works. The whole funeral thing is for the benefit of the living anyway.

Even the classic funeral costs a fortune now.

I want a viking burial where I'm on a boat and get pushed out on to the ocean or lake and a fire arrow that sets the boat on fire then a massive party to remember me

10/20/14 11:06 pm

I'd like to be cremated then have the ashes placed in a hole and a tree on top.

Put me in a forced-air compost system and fertilize some pasture with it.

Just recycle me. Use me as fertilizer or something. I don't want to go to waste in a box. If I can't continue to enjoy the world, at least let all my bodily bacteria get out and enjoy it for me.

Space burial but nix ashes in low orbit, whole body in a sturdy coffin (think Spock in Star Trek II), and full blast into intergalactic space. Outta here ;)
