    It the one thing we all have in common.. we are all going to die one day.

    What do you want them to do with your body?

    I use to be all about getting cremated until I saw this video and well now I am 50/50

    You can't become a zombie if you're cremated, so lower me into the ground. I'm eating some brains in about 200 years.

    My sister and I pretty much hated each other when she died. She wanted to be cremated; I'm pretty familiar with the process, so i didn't object: i felt it was an appropriate treatment for her. unfortunately I'm pretty sure she wasn't aware when the grinders went to work after the flames. that would have been poetic justice.

    Cremated, ashes mixed with concrete and placed in the ocean to be part of an artificial reef.

    i use to think it would be great to have some of my ashes sneaked into Disneyland and dumped on Tom Sawyers Island

    so that way if the whole ghost thing was true I could at least haunt a Disneyland

    I want to be frozen and stuck in a vat....just in case they figure out how to rejuvenate me in 500 years or so...

    The big ones are full body, small ones head only (figuring you can clone the body and reattach the head).

    No. Just wrap me up like a mummy. A Vader costume would be cool though.

    As a funeral director I am choosing cremation. I do not want to be embalmed. Nothing against it, I do it every day. After i pass away, i am donating whatever organs that are viable and then I just want to have a church ceremony and then be cremated right after. No viewing, no nothing.I already have the prearranged service paid for and it is in my will. I suggest to all that the stipulations of your funeral arrangements be put in a will so they may be upheld after you pass away and won't be contested.
