Do you care? I personally think it's absurd to have a lot of money spent on some silk lined platinum plated casket. A pine box is fine with me, and you can donate my organs too. I have good eyes (nice color too). Don't get me wrong, i'd like a nice send off and all, but the actual box isn't important, and my body is just dead meat. A little respect i suppose, but just plant me. Actually probably would need to be put in a decent area so the thousands of mourners can be comfortable when they pay their respects.

At the funeral, I want my body to pop out of the casket like a jack in the box.

I've thought about this too.

When I die, use as many as my organs as you want. Want to use them for medical purposes? Fine. Want to have sex or physical intimacy with them? Fine. Would you like to eat my body meat? Fine.

I don't want to spend anything for my funeral. When I die, just throw me into a random incinerator at a garbage dump or the like, and I'm fine. There's no point of even having a crowd and wasting their time. It's not too significant for me.

I actually believe that tombstones should not vary in size for it is giving off the message that a certain deceased person is more important then others. I believe the shape and wording may be customized if wished but size remain the same. I personally just want to be burried somewhere respectful and hopefully peaceful.

I want to be cremated. The idea of decomposing in a box just seems like a waste of money.
I'm not back. This idiot just upset me which made me stop lurking.

Cremation most probably.

As much as I'd enjoy hearing the below, I'd be dead, so seems moot. ^^

Forasmuch as it hath pleased Almighty God of his great mercy to take unto himself the soul of our dear brother here departed, we therefore commit his body to the ground; earth to earth, ashes to ashes, dust to dust; in sure and certain hope of the Resurrection to eternal life, through our Lord Jesus Christ; who shall change our vile body, that it may be like unto his glorious body, according to the mighty working, whereby he is able to subdue all things to himself.

You think that, but life goes on for those who love you. You may not care, but they will want a certain amount of respect paid toward you. Although your life may end, the relationship that the living have with those that have left does not. My father died over 20 years ago, and his impact (for better or worse) on my life hasn't ended, and my understanding of him continues to build. I'm guessing that you wouldn't want your entire life to be forgotten immediately by those you love upon your death. If you're a decent person, and i think you are, you will understand this more as you experience these losses. Dignity in life, dignity in death.

I honestly don't care what happens to anyone or anything in the world after I'm dead. I'll be dead, after all. As such, I intend on leaving no will and not leaving any specifications for what is to be done with the body I once possessed.

Bury it, burn it, eat it, f*ck it, I really don't care.

It would suck if, by some perplexing phenomenon, we continued to be fully conscious after our bodies appear to be dead. Not in a usual coma sort of way, but supernatural.

Now that would be a cool idea for Hell. Especially for those of yall out there that don't mind if someone violates all the holes in it.

The Principia Discordia describes that hell is reserved specifically for people who believe in it. The lowest circle is for those who believe that not believing in it would put you there.

If you don't believe in it, then this information shouldn't be important to you in the first place, since you believe it to be falce. Since it is a 'good thing' though, one must assume you do secretly believe in it. Which means you would be going to hell, if the Principle discorded is true. However, I personally don't believe it is true.
