Cremation and using my remains as fertilizer for my favorite tree, and sky burial seems like the most funniest way to dispose of a body .
Oh, I decided I want a different way. I wanna be cremated and have my ashes mixed in with the sand at a playground. The other alternative is to have it tossed inside of a bouncy castle, or into the ballroom at McDonalds. As long as there's some way for my ashes to irritate children as much as they've irritated me, I can rest in peace.
I'm glad you have a very mature outlook on your coffin. I agree with you that an ornate coffin is a silly thing when a very basic pine box or even cremation suffices.
You should understand though that any and all funeral proceedings from the coffin to the actual ceremony itself are simply part of the grieving process for the surviving family.
You went shopping for your own coffin? That's kinda weird... but a good idea I guess, may save your relatives some money.
I'd also get the cheapest one possible, as long as it doesn't have any friggin crosses printed on it.
It's sort of the same reason for those big, fancy weddings: it's what people expect. Sometimes big weddings are for the couple. Just as often it is for the family. I think the same thing goes for funerals: some people want a BFD so they want expensive and beautiful caskets. Other times they do it because they think that is what their family will want. Who wants the leave their family with their final image of you being buried in an old refridgerator cardboard box?
I kind of wish we could take people's remains and dispose of it organically and use the material to help the soil.
I want people to make me a temple made of gold. There will be a labyrinth inside with death traps from all directions. No one will know the way since the architect and the constructors will all remain inside sacrificing themselves. (I dont want to feel lonely.)
The coffin which I will be in, will be made of gold (DUH) and will be like a Pharaohs's coffin. Atop of the coffin there will be a statue of me (made of pure gold) which will be the size of the Colossus of Rhodes.

Hunter scatter this rogue.
Hunter drain that priest.
Hunter where is frost trap. Bad Hunter! No banana!
Hunter where is flare? No flare, you get replaced by retarded warrior!"
My mother actually insisted that we donate her body to a medical school.
No fuss, they take the body and return the cremated remains within a year or two. There are just a few contracts to sign.
Naturally, the God fearing citizens of that town would worship this new monolith as it should be.
