Anyone interested should google, "Body Farm" for an interesting look at what happens to some bodies that were donated for science research.
I also have that book and yeah, it wasn't as good as Stiff.

I want my body crystallized in amber like those mosquitoes from Jurassic Park (cue scientist who will now crush my dreams by telling me why that isn't possible).

In all seriousness I'd want a cremation followed by having my ashes shot out of a cannon into the ocean or something like that. I've met too many necrophiliacs to ever consent to being buried, and ever since watching Meet the Parents I'm not particularly keen on letting my descendants keep my ashes.

That may be the fist time in history that phrase was ever said.

I went to an Irish guy's memorial service in Boston once. It was very cool. They had his urn of ashes right up on the bar and everyone drank and told funny stories about all the crazy experiences they had with him. I would choose cremation (don't want tons of $$$ wasted on an expensive funeral and casket). Next I want a memorial service like the one that guy had but I want my pot head friends to come to and I want it to start at 4:20pm.

Lol...love it! I think dh would like a funeral like that. All I would have to do is swap out the remote for an X-box controller and put up some Halo or GOW stuff...perfect.

Although it is temping to request something like this. Life long Steelers fan.

My next oldest brother has always said nearly the same thing -- "put me in a garbage bag and bury me in the back yard".

My grandmother too. Atheist through and through. Couldn't be doing with church (particularly loathed the holy communion "all those little girls dressed up as brides" thing). Always going on about 'put me in a bin bag and take me to the dump' - hilarious really - she couldn't be doing with all that "stuff and nonsense". You may be relieved to hear we didn't honour her wishes when she died. We may have got some funny looks I think.
