    And it is steeper than that if you don't wait until they're dead first.

    I told my wife, "If I die before you do, and you think you can get away with it, just throw my naked corpse in a ditch, and let the county take care of it". Of course she'd have to pull out a bunch of my teeth so they couldn't identify me.

    Well worth it - that's a major undertaking.

    My sister in law and her husband had one of those final need guys come out to talk with them about policies that would insure they were put away when the time came just as they wished. Her husband said, oh WE just want to be cremated WE don't want to spend a lot of money on a funeral. My sis in law spoke up and said, "unless you've got a frog in your pocket, WE ain't going for no cremation, this part of WE is going to have a nice funeral, with a nice box for me to ride in."

    I have a personal friend that's an undertaker.
    I have a lot of confidence in the man.
    He's the last guy that will ever let you down.

    Do it protesting monk style, then the city will have to clean it up.

    I buried my mom about 20 years ago. It cost around $8,000 then to put her in a box in the ground, and it wasn't a fancy casket. I don't know what it costs now, but the price is too damn high. I would really be interested in Soylent Green. In fact, I would agree to taste samples for the manufacturer. Or maybe Simple Rick's.

    There's at least one company that will compost your remains into soil. I think Washington state is the only place it's currently allowed by law.

    By the time I get through with this thing, I'd still have to pay to get them to take it.

    Which begs the question.
    If zombies find someones ashes, do they think it's a M.R.E.?

    Depends on who you donate to.....some medical schools will accept your body for students to study, but afterwards it's up to the family to deal with whats left, unless they don't want anything back, and the remains go to an anonymous county grave.
