Force to think about it right now becasue my mother is dying and we are making plans with her for hers. That is bizzzarre.

I switch between I do nto care since I am dead to I want my body to be taxidermied with my arm raised and my finger pointing and I want to be stood up in the corner of my daughter's living room.

Where can I get this done?

I don't expect to have one. My preference would be to either bury my corpse in an undisclosed location or be cremated and have my ashes spread at sea. I don't want anything remaining to mark my existence. Because it doesn't really matter.

Cremate me, scatter my ashes somewhere, then have a party. No service of any kind required.

I don't plan to have a funeral, I just don't care what happens after I die. I'm thinking about donating my body to science, let them deal with it. lol

I think our funeral traditions are pretty barbaric. And outrageously expensive. I want to spend the money while I'm alive.

I agree.

I've told my family to nuke me to morbid (of course, I will already be morbid but it is a catchy phrase) and then go out to eat.
