Myself- I plan to live forever (so far, so good ) but I did like one post on the forum: "I told my family to cremate me and pour my ashes into the wells of my enemies"

So- how do YOU plan on saying aloha? Forest Lawn? Flaming Viking ship? Have your body left in a booth at Waffle House? Scare the hell out of the lifeguard at the pool?
I'll be cremated and powdered so the wife can put me in the D bag and run me through 1 more time. Any left overs can be added to a shot gun shell.

It occurs to me that a buddy of mine in Memphis had this cool landlord who had built his casket & kept it behind the couch. It was a nice wooden casket with handles, not fancy, but nice.

This presumes you have notice in advance. This also makes me wonder how i could make my body poisonous to bears, bears only. That could be some funny stuff; write "eat me" on my forehead & lay in wait for some ursine victims. muahahahaha

Cremated and my ashes spread on a horse trail that I love in Wyoming. Now I can only hope my family will actually do it!

Cremated and half my ashes spread on my favorite spot in the N. Georgia mountains; and the other half off the southern coast of Hawaii. Wife has agreed to do it, since she'll get a trip back to The Big Island (where we got married).

My father-in-law passed on a few years ago and my wife and I handled all of the formalities. He had pre-paid for cremation and we picked up the cremains. His other daughter (my sister-out-law) insisted that we give her some of the ashes. We did, putting them in a pint Mason jar for the novelty (other daughter insisted that he had buried tens of thousands in cash in Mason jars out in the garden but it was not true).

A couple of days later I lamented as to how I should have taken ashes from the pellet stove and barbecue to give her. I still regret not having done that as he would have liked the idea.

His ashes are next to me now as I write. One day when my wife is ready we will spread them somewhere.

As for me I don't care. I think cremation is a good idea as cemeteries for the likes of me are a waste of real estate. The cremains can be left out in the trash as far as I am concerned. I think my boys will come up with another idea though. I'm cool with whatever they do.

I agree cemeteries are a waste of real estate. What's the point? My Mother died many years ago and she is buried in the ground. The rare time I go to the cemetery, I think, "What the heck am I doing here?" I don't feel any closer to her there at her graveside than I am at any other time of day.

As for my cremains, I imagine I'll sit on one of the kid's mantel. Some day a grand child will knock the urn over and they'll just vacuum me up.

Family land cemeteries are common here in the country. We are looking for some land close to us to build a gun range on for our own use. Maybe she can plant me somewhere out down range under the big gong ive had in my shop for years, waiting on a good patch of land.

play the victim, be the victim
