Seeing as I’m sitting out the latest bout of stealth flu and feeling pretty dren My thoughts turned to death. Now you read about people having their bodies cryogenically frozen or thir ashes carried into space. scoring a bit part in CSI etc etc and I wondered what Saddies would have done to their cadavers if they could?
Me I’m sick, so either I’d like to have my body hacked up into morsel sized chunks and fed to my beloved crows – sort of Tibetan Sky burial or. be cremated and have my ashes used as cat litter.1st December 2005 at 11:19 pm #75682aquabloodstoneParticipant
I would personally prefer cremation with a lovely scattering over a celebrity wedding from the paparazzi helicopter. 😈
But seriously, cremation and scattering over the mountains or some such nature-y location.7th December 2005 at 11:55 pm #75716
Cremated on a big funeral pyre, and my ashes scattered to a strong north wind. With my friends giving me the fire-arrow send-off like they did in that old Robin Hood series.8th December 2005 at 9:02 am #75723
i’m thinking of having it done, to have just your head done costs around 20k, i have no kids and i can’t take it with me so why not. People laugh but i’ve got nothing to loose, the only downside is that when you go they are waiting at your bed and whisk you off in ice straight away, which could be a bit of a shock for any loved ones8th December 2005 at 9:28 am #75727
If some smal part of your mind remains conscious you may be looking at a very long, cold nightmare .. just a thought.13th December 2005 at 4:04 pm #75845
uurghhhh, scary thought14th December 2005 at 8:19 am #75868
Not my intention to spoil it for you or anything. But I thought it was something worth mentioning.14th December 2005 at 12:05 pm #75875
that’s ok, i’ll just make sure they put a copy of war and peace in there with me 😉16th December 2005 at 11:53 am #75891
How’s the flu bout going? Are you over it yet?
I use to manage, every year to get sick for at least one major holiday.
One year, but virtue of hard work and several sets of small children (some related, some babysat) I managed to hit almost all of them. I have been pretty lucky this year, and so far my flu shot has warded off several little bouts traveling around the office.
Should one someday take me from this vale of tears, then I guess cremation is the way to go. 😉26th December 2005 at 11:54 pm #75837
Do not go gentle into that good night,

Pricey yes? I looked through the testimonials and was amazed at the families who ordered multiples. Of course when I saw the price of them, I was even more amazed.
interesting though. Certainly beats a talking head stone.27th December 2005 at 11:41 pm #75798
I’m gonna try to make my own with my old Easy-Bake oven.
I wonder if e-bay sells cadavers.27th December 2005 at 11:44 pm #75901
Your own talking headstone? Hummm, I think cold cast cement with marble dust mixed in would be better than the easy-baked clay tablet type. 😉

You’ve obviously never tasted my cooking. 😉28th December 2005 at 12:14 am #75903
I wonder, they have two types of headstone, one voice only, one video…..
Hummm, when you record the video? If I am going to be visable for all time, do I really want to wait until I am old and sick to record it?
Hummmmm…. how long do you figure it would be until someone fixed their headstone so that rather than touch activated it would be motion activated? “Hey!!! You! Come’re a minute…….”
Also, what do you say? My first thought was to just scream at the top of my voice, “Being Dead So Sucks!” It would convey how I feel about it and scare the begeesers (or life even) out of someone activating it. 😆29th December 2005 at 9:56 pm #75909
I’d never have expected this thread to still be going…s’funny because immediately after I posted it I couldn’t log on..so I guess that was as good as being dead I’ve been in limbo…well hanging out on the goldfrapp site which is cool. Good to be back here though 😀31st December 2005 at 2:54 am #75916
See, we kept the post warm for you. 😀 And…. found you talking headstones and ancestor diamonds. Which would you be up for?31st December 2005 at 12:33 pm #75918AnonymousGuest
Or have your ashes launched into space13th January 2006 at 6:10 pm #75958
talking head stones? Only if I get to say something rude!
