  • cremate my ass! I'm dead. No sense taking up valuable land that could be put to better use.

  • Ive been debating with this.
    Im not comfortable taking up a tiny piece of land for eternity so that for the next 20yrs my family can visit my plot.
    Im unsure of how I feel about being cremated...

    BUT. recently I watched "Get Fresh With Sarah Snow". And they did a really cool segment about this. There ARE alternatives! And these sound better (AND MUCH CHEAPER!) to me.. A wicker basket (shaped casket) to be burried & a more natural like Rock (even engraved) to mark your head stone instead is much natural & earth friendly. Your body & basket will in time decompose and once again become part of the earth. Or you have the choice of being wrapped in silk/linens or mummified.. All very cheap. Very natural ways of being buried.

  • I say cremated, no sence in taking up land just so a fancy box can be there.

  • your NEITHER!!!!!!!!!! I am afraid of waking up while buried alive 6 ft under or waking up burning alive. So what I want to do is donate my body to science so if i get cut into or something and i wake up someone knows and freaks out and well someone will find me.

  • Doesn't matter. I'll be dead either way.
