Have you planned anything for yourself?

Depending on the area there are so many great and strange options. Funeral or no funeral, embalming, green burial, water cremation, body farms... I think someone even successfully sued to be buried in a hole in their backyard. We have everything except the really cool cannibalistic traditions (and I bet you could arrange for that on the dark web).

I would really like to donate my corpse to a body farm. The bugs disgust me, but it's also kind of exciting, to know you will be teaching forensic scientists, and get to decay naturally. I would probably cut my hair beforehand to be worked into jewelry, and everyone that takes some of my belongings has to take one of those, too.

In practice, we don't have body farms here, so I'm emailing research facilities and med schools to find out if they would take my body science after an OD or train "accident". I have to figure out how to ask so it's not obvious I'm offing myself. I'll still be teaching someone, and it's free.

I've never heard of body farms before! I used to want to be buried, but now I don't really feel like I have any specific preference for after I'm gone. Having my body help plant a tree sounds nice though...

My mother pays for a plan that covers everything, so there is nothing for me to worry about (unless I choose to kill myself in a different country, but why would I do that).

I don't want a funeral, just three or four people to bury me in an unknown cemetery, doesn't even need to be well-kept. I also don't want my name on a headstone because I want no-one to visit me.

I just wish my body would disappear after I die honestly. I want to be burned or buried as soon as possible with no funeral or embalming. I don't even want my family to look at my body.

If I had family, I'd say I agree completely. But I'm on the same page regarding "I just wish my body would disappear after I die." I want no record at all of ever having been alive.

I have no preference for what happens to my body. After I'm dead, there is nothing I can do to influence the decision of others and nothing I can do to affect the world itself. Thus, while I would prefer my body to just be buried, cremated, or dumped into the ocean, it is up to what the survivors decide to do with it.

I love the idea of a green burial, my body just wrapped in a shroud and put into the earth and a willow tree planted on top. Like a Tibetan sky burial, being reabsorbed by nature - at least in death my body would be useful!

I AM NOT JOKING, but ideally I would love to have my coffin carried by 6 male strippers, New Orleans Jazz being played live and a happy ceremony - champagne for everyone, and yes. I porn actor or two putting on a show, a very unusual casket - leather and baubles.... etc..etc...
