    Fixed that. We all knew what you were trying to say.

    Such a serious discussion yet reading some of the comments I can't help but laugh.

    Now though, being a bit more serious, why would anyone want to be cremated? In a few hundreads of years when cellular reconstruction is perfected, and the future people want to bring back the "past people" (us), your DNA will be unavailable if cremated, while that of people being buried will be available. So we'll get brought back to a futuristic world, while you will remain dead. Combine that with the fact that if you're atheist, you belive in no higher force or Heaven or similar instance, why would you want your death to be an absolute permanent thing by making sure you won't be brought back?

    Even if you do belive in a further instance as Heaven, like I do, maybe you'd like to return to Earth sometimes "in a visit" as actually yourself, so why give up the option? This not even counting that in many religions at the second/third/290384283th coming of God/s/ess/esses your former body is used as a rebirthed vessel.


    I just don't understand why people want to be cremated...

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.
    This is the most profoundly awesome thing I have ever quoted. And I am totally backing this myself!

    Are the dead people going to get sick from all the other dead people?

    Omg lmao, Its going in my will to my to be grand children in the decades to come, you want my cash, you have to eat my buttock,

    Seriously though, while I agree with you nothing fancy is needed, I don't quite like the idea of a wooden coffin, breaking with time, and being smothered in mud and insects,

    Also I don't like the idea of cremation, you know just incase one of these religions are right and you need your body / the state your body was ,

    Also, I would be having a emergency panic button built into the coffin which will be connected to every one of my children's house, in-case I friken wake up, (Imo it has happened )

    Also, I will tell my favorite family member to make sure the doctors pump me with some form of drug that would kill a man, to ensure I was dead, then I would make sure before I died, that the above mentioned panic button, would have a built in secret timer to sound off, every year, on the day and time I died,

    Yes I'm a evil bastard, and yes I do mean most of things I've typed

    This is why I don't attend wakes. I like to have a happy memory of the deceased, not a dead person in a box. Wakes are old and really served one purpose, so debt collectors knew you were dead.

    Probably, its, a build up of bacteria in the coffin from the dead, probably highly infectious, cracked open, it will cover anyone close to it

    But when Aunt Gerty's crohn's disease mixes with Uncle Wally's Psoriasis in the mass grave, what if it gives birth to some sort of weird zombie confab. Like that teddy bear monster in Akira.

    Fancy coffins are like fancy everything-else, you don't buy it because it's useful you buy it because it makes you feel good about yourself and inflates your ego. So when people buy 15k coffins for themselves or others it's because given their ego they don't think any less will do.

    Personally if I were swimming in cash I'd get myself a luxurious waterproof casket and I'd have that sent to the bottom of the ocean.

    If i had the means to, I would buy myself an island or a hilltop some place special to me. And have a burial mound, or be put in the ground and have a stone "circle" of huge stones, only in the shape of a boat.

    If my family dare to put me in hallowed ground, I will haunt them!

    Or be launched into space.

    Not anymore than buying life insurance or preparing a will, which is something that many people do at some point in time in their lives. And lots of people prepay for funeral costs, burial plots, etc.

    Being prepared for the sake of your family is never a bad thing.

    I admit a viking pyre funeral would be pretty cool. Then again, I don't care, I'll be dead, and don't get to watch it.

    Gonna buy a coffin,

    Get cremated, so my family can spread it somewhere..not sure yet. Tell family and friends to set up closed coffin funeral.

    Have huge funeral and my 2 best friends run out butt ass naked and push my coffin over if they're still alive.
    With this song playing, just because.
