Interesting. I didn't know this:
<div class="quote-container"><span>Quote:</span>
<div class="quote-block">Even cremation typically costs more than $1,000 -- and it has its environmental downside: Cremation uses energy and releases dioxin and mercury (up to 6 grams a body)</div>
</div>

I used to want to be cremated but i heard about this awhile ago and this is definately more appealing than cremation. I remember I saw this on Six Feet Under, the show on HBO, Nate get buried in one of these. I would hate to be buried there in New York though, its much to cold here, <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/doh.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":doh:">

That is kind of cool ..... but I still think the whole burial thing is pretty ridiculous. Why not toss us out to sea and let the animals eat us? Kind of like the Vikings did.. sort of. Eh, or maybe that's not even a good idea. We're not good for their diets ... full of preservatives and all kinds of crap ...

Just toss me in a ditch or throw me to the necropheliacs!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/laugh.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":lol:"><br><br><br><br>
Honestly, I would rather be buried in a coffin that will break down in much less time than usual. And I don't want to be buried in a cemetary either--a field or my farm or something, but I think they have laws against that.
