Sure but I'd REALLY struggle to get municipal permission for that.

And, it would freak the kids out.

All you need is hot sun, lots of rain and about 4 weeks with plenty of predators.

Decomposed, broken down, broken apart, eaten, digusted etc etc etc.

Any method. Eventually we just break down.

AGH HELL...
Bury me face down with my ass up in the air so the world can kiss it, or someone can use it to park thier bike.

( SERIOUSLY ) cremation, scatter my ashes over a nice lake any where,
and tell my family I did the best I could. Have a good stiff drink in my memory, and get on with your life.......Believe me, it won't be but a few months before you are forgotten.

How depressing Undecided
I would also rather my family and friends accept that I'm dead and gone, and that they'll never see me again. I would also hope that this acceptance would help them to adjust and grow as loving and productive human beings, and that my death would somehow give their lives that little bit more meaning. I wouldn't want to be forgotten by those who loved me in life, but at the same time I would be devastated to hear if they put their lives on hold because I had passed away.
If I die early, I want my partner to always remember me but go on and live life, and find a loving and caring guy to spend life with that could take care of him in my place.
I think this kind of love and caring for others can only be discovered in ourselves when we accept our impermanence in the world - in my view, belief in an afterlife devalues the little time we have in life.

I would LOVE to be jettisoned into space. However that probably won't be plausible so I'm thinking of having my body donated to science. If I don't need my body again why not put it some final beneficial use.

I'm rather against being jettisoned into space. The planet Earth has too much space debris as it is...poor thing. It would also be a terrible waste of a good body as well.

RE: How do you want your funeral?
hm, I could be buried, Because life comes from the earth and shall return to the Earth it's only natual I should return to the Earth. I thought of Mausoleum but it looks too fancy and I changed my mind after "Most Haunted, Paul O'Grady and Friends". It's really too early in my life for me to consider about funeral and I prefer to think of life than death.
However insted of returning to the Earth, I know of a permanent and more stylish funeral I want.

Diamonds are Forever!

My Nana was cremated and ashes with grandfather, I think Mum wants to be burried with Nana, Id like to be a jewel fitted onto the grave sparkling in the sunlight.

I'll also be a Cursed Gem! If someone tries to steal me from the grave, they will end in the grave.
