When you die... how do you want to go

[ Edited ]
19 replies 216 views Edited Dec 5, 2012

Alan Billis, a former cabbie from southwest England, passed away in January from terminal lung cancer. And, as many recently deceased do, he donated his body to science – though this science happens to be many millennia old.

Billis, who died at 61, is one of just a few modern men to be mummified in the precise style of King Tutankhamen. (American professor Bob Brier first used Egyptian techniques to mummify a body in 1994.) Indeed, the science of mummification has only recently been reconstructed, with incredibly few bodies having been preserved in such a manner for more than 3000 years.

Ok I know this is old but would you rather be 

 

  1. Cremated
  2. Buried 
  3. Mummified
  4. Frozen

I think it is rather cool that a body can stay around for more than 3000 years.

 

Your Body would still be intact while there are flying cars and all kinds of crazy stuff.

 

Personally I would want to be 4. Frozen , It seems less painful (yes I know Im dead already).

 

A freind of mine said he wanted to buried face down.... I asked why and he said so the world could kiss my **bleep**... lol

 

Anyway there was a episode I think on discovery channel that covered the processes of him being mummified showing steps  in preserving this modern day mummy.

His entire body had to be submerged under a liquid in order to be perfectly preserved.

 

Its amazing that the ancient Egyptians knew how to do this... More than likely passes on from generation to generation.

I think we under estimate the ancient civilizations.

 

There is a battery , bulb , all types of stuff we thought we invented but in fact was in use way before " it was invented".

 

Ok so tell me how do you want to be put to rest?

It's already in my will, I'll be cremated upon death.

I want my body to be covered with carrots and oats, and then be eaten by horses.

cremated after a proper wake - fun, happiness, music, jokes, food and booze.  No moping around, snuffling and crying.  Celebrate!

I'd prefer to be cremated.

Although this works just as well.

Not a bad way to go.

 

But I think that I'll have to settle for being cremated.

I want to be cremated and my ashes be used to make pencils and donate them to a local school (but I don't let them know they're dead guy pencils, just regular pencils).

Deadly Neurotoxin!
