Recently a man ran across Lincoln Field in Philly and scattered his mom[s ashes. Apparently she was a big Eagles fan.

Which makes me wonder...

If you could have your ashes scattered anywhere in Nova, what site would you choose?

Oh, and just in case anyone's wondering:

1) Yes, this thread is supposed to be lighthearted and tongue-in-cheek--not morbid.

2) No, I am not a salesman for a funeral chapel, trying to drum up business!

How about ashes scattered on either 495 or 66 or some other hellhole.. Nice way to spend an eternity. Hmm.. Maybe in downtown Leesburg, or Balls Bluff Battlefield. Would be fun to hang out with all the other ghosts that supposedly "live" there. But if I get to pick downtown Leesburg, can I visit all the restaurants too?

Even better, you get to visit the restaurants and not gain weight!

NoVa -- God forbid. Rappahannock River, preferably near Carter's Creek, in sight of Tides Inn.

Tysons Galleria Mall

So people only wearing suits and designer outfits could sense my presence.

You know, it could be cool to scatter your ashes from a metro train. I'd want a plaque on the loading platform for the West Falls Church station. A bronze plaque with intriguing art, or better yet a Sudoku puzzle. That way people will ponder my plaque and remember my name every time they wait for a train.
