    What do you want when you die?

    David's post over in the ad thread about the corpses being moved trigger a thought- What do you want done with your body when you die?

    I honestly could care less if they just threw my body into the garbage. I would only be mad because they wasted my body when it could be used to donate organs to those in need or some science experiment. Otherwise I don't care- I'll be dead.

    What about you all? Do you actually care? What do you think about those that aren't willing to donate their organs for those in need or science?

    I'm pretty fine with them harvesting all they can, to be honest; it's not like I'll be using it any more: Why keep it?

    As for other people, I'm not completely sure where I stand. It's not my business what other people do with their bodies but, from any discussion I've ever had on the topic, everyone just seems to feel a bit uneasy giving away parts such as the corneas and skin because they make up such a big part of who we are (aesthetically speaking, at least).

    I've also heard one or two objections from people taking a religious standing on donation. I'm not sure if that's even anywhere in their scriptures and the idea of someone walking around in the 'afterlife' without their skin makes me laugh but I should think the caring and giving side of their religion should always come first, right?

    After they find any organs that are still worth a damn - liver ain't gonna make it - then cremate me, spread my ashes into the ocean.

    They take the organs, burn me, than put the ashes in a rocket to infinity or military balloon with all my friends and family signature

    That's the best I can do for this cool and awesome puppet.
    I ask you all to concentrate really hard on the freedom of all being. Its hard not to be very angry it is impossible We have to focus this confusion frustration helplessness feeling into a creative outlet Anger can spawn such amazing creativity through Street art Free art to teach each other know each other a language our evolution Go ahead and break some dumb rules

    i want to be compost ...either put me through a big shredder, mix me with some kitchen scraps, some lawn clippings and finally put me into a big worm farm

    ...or dig a 12 foot post hole, slip me down vertical and shovel dirt over top until there is just enough space for a nut tree seedling.

    [addendum] I don't necessarily think recycling organs is the way to go...we have enough people, and don't need to preserve them like we do rare species. I like the carbon banking involved in composting.

    I want my organs used in direct defiance of whatever the prevailing unpopular political view at the time is. The rest, mulch.

    Harvest what you can, burn the rest and take my ashes on one last skydive...

    the funniest thing in the entire world, is that God himself invented the art of taking one body part from someone and giving it to someone else.

    Adam donated a rib to Eve. its in the bible, so clearly it must be a good thing.
