I don't really care about it myself. If my family wants me to have a grave to visit, I'll go with that. If they want to launch me to space, I guess that's where I'm heading.

I will donate my organs though. I have no use of them when I'm dead.

No mummification? lol I've always been fascinated by that. Not really sure to be honest, but I guess just buried. Not interested in turning to ash and being spread all over...
Screw giving away my organs, I want em little jars in my sarcophagus :p

I want to be cremated and buried, and donate my organs. (i just need to register to be an organ donor, first)

ever since i was little, i have always wanted to be cryogenically frozen, but until they perfect the way to bring someone back to life, my choice shall be different. :)

Something really awkward and difficult, like being cremated and scattered at the summit of Mt Everest or the bottom of the Mariana Trench. Take that, friends and family! :mis:

I'm not sure yet tbh. I guess I'd want to be buried. But not on a cemetery. I don't get how anyone could want to spent eternity in a place such as our modern cemetries. Gruesome :p.

PS: Take the eternity part with a pinch of salt ;).

I'm an organ donor too though so all those that are of any use would be leaving me. What do I need them for when I'm dead?

Please God I live for a good while yet though.

I would donate my organs and would want to be cremated. It's the best choices.

Donate because it will help someone else. And cremate because if they bury you then they might just end up not going to your tomb anymore or your family might have to move away so...

im suprised that no one wants to be have their organs and skeleton donated, then be stuffed, then cremated, then have their ashes cryogenically frozen, then have those frozen ashes buried, then they will have the chunk of ground that they are buried in hurled into space, which will in turn be dug up and eaten by some fuzzy creatures.

its quite an experience, but a fancy way to go.:D

I chose:
Buried
Cryogenically Frozen
Stuffed (Human Taxidermy, although this is not legal in many countries.

I shudder when I hear so many people who would like their body to be destroyed so soon after they are deceased. The best thing for me is either freezing or taxidermy. And taxidermy especially if I die younger because then I can be put as a statue in the grand hall of my house so that all people can see me and that my children can preserve me and show me to the future generations of my family.

I want my family to throw me over a bunch of penguins.

i guess that would fall under, I'm an animal lover, so I would like my remains to be a meal for some fuzzy creatures. unless you hate those penguins, are going to have your body laced with poison... :mis:

i asked my friend, and she said she wanted to die at 39, so that she is still considered "young"; and she wants to be stuffed and placed on display in the Lourve, so that generations of people can admire her unfathomable beauty, and a plaque beneath her body will say something like: "Here lies the woman who was considered to be the most beatiful person who ever lived, and looks better dead than any of the *****es that are alive now."

I think the traditional tibetan funeral is beautiful if you see it with an open mind, but I wouldn't ask anyone in my family to provide me one when I'm gone. Taking my body to a mountain and feeding me to the vultures could put someone in trouble with local authorities, I would be fine with organs donated and a regular burial.

I think I mentioned earlier that I don't want to be an organ donor, and yeah it's for selfish reasons. If it was family or a significant other, that'd be different. Hehe maybe 1000 years after I die someone will dig me up and put me in a museum :D

I support people who want to do it, but I could never donate my organs. It might seem silly, but I consider them a part of myself and it would be weird to imagine them in someone else. It's not like batteries, it's a part of you and even though we all have the organs that function the same, there aren't two that are completely the same. Also, I wouldn't want to be cut up after I die, I see that as mutilation of a corpse.

Religious viewpoints

All major religions either accept organ donation can save lives or accept the right of individual members to make their own decision. Most religions like the Roman Catholic Church are in favor of organ donation as acts of charity and as a means of saving a life. Some impose certain restrictions.[29] For example, Jehovah's Witnesses require that organs be drained of any blood due to their interpretation of the dis-allowance of blood transfusion from the bible,[30] and Muslims require that the donor have provided written consent in advance.[30] Orthodox Judaism considers it obligatory if it will save a life, as long as the donor is considered dead as defined by Jewish law.[30] A few groups disfavor organ transplantation or donation; notably, these include Shinto[31] and those who follow the folk customs of the Gypsies.[30]


Whoa, sorry for the double post.

Thanks for that :D! Interesting read. No wonder I've never heard of organ donation being prohibited by faith, I dont know anything about Gypsies/Shinto XD

It's pretty much akin to throwing a hissy fit because not everyone agrees with you. "Oh no not everyone shares my views on the handling of their remains when they die - they're all just selfish".

Pathetic.

This is spot on

12-05-10, 08:34
Having witnessed the process first hand of how the organ donation system works i am truly a supporter of everyone donating.. Its not a simple process where dead people just give up organs, theres a insanely tight timeline that everything has to be done within, and the death itself cannot be out of the hospitals `control` so to speak (ie if you die in a car crash or something then most likely even if you wanted to donate you cannot).

My mum was cremated, but i think i am like my better half, i like the idea of being buried to be dug up later and the look on the persons face when they see what we've left em :)

I voted for launched into space since I'm a huge fan of space/sci-fi stuff in general. I'd love to donate, but since I've always been so sick and weak I'm sure I'd end up doing more bad than good.

But if space isn't an option, then I don't care what happens to my body after I die. Chuck it in the sewer for all I care. I'll be dead, I won't feel a thing.

I've thought about it (just now) and figured why should some guys (the pallbearers) be burdened with carrying a big ol heavy casket? :confused: So, like I joked about one time... I could be cremated.

The joke was that if I was horribly disfigured in an accident and I couldn't be put in a casket - I could be cremated. But since I have an artificial knee joint -- when you'd shake the Urn it would go 'clankety clank clank'. :vlol:

Aw, dang-it. I didn't see donate organs. Yeah. I'd do that. I'm blood type O- . I think that would mean I'm a universal donor... At least with blood. I don't know if it works the same with organs.

I don't want my organs removed and it is a personal choice you can't say "that's selfish" why am I selfish just because I do not want my body to be cut open and then sewed back up and then placed in a coffin?

I know that if I died I would want me, and I mean all of me to be intact. Somebody else having my kidneys and liver just makes me feel like an object, or a spare parts shop. Though I admire those who do donate.

Well, your organs just go to waste in your body, it is your choice if you don't want to donate your organs, but I just see it for the better! You're not going to be able to use them again, you won't feel you're organs being taken out, and in doing this, you're helping someone else get another chance at life! I guess I find it selfish as my mom is currently looking for a kidney transplant for 3 years now, so I would just find it amazing for someone who wold donate their organs! :o

I don't want my organs removed and it is a personal choice you can't say "that's selfish" why am I selfish just because I do not want my body to be cut open and then sewed back up and then placed in a coffin?

...So as long as it's your personal choice, nothing is selfish?

Well, your organs just go to waste in your body, it is your choice if you don't want to donate your organs, but I just see it for the better! You're not going to be able to use them again, you won't feel you're organs being taken out, and in doing this, you're helping someone else get another chance at life! I guess I find it selfish as my mom is currently looking for a kidney transplant for 3 years now, so I would just find it amazing for someone who wold donate their organs! :o

3 years!

This is different from donating all of your organs if, for example, a family member required an kidney and I was compatible I would donate it as it would only affect my health minimally. But for all of my organs to be removed to me just would make me feel again like a spare part box.

Oh and Lara's home, obviously my body and what I choose to do with it when I die is not selfish at all. That's just guilt tripping anyway I am going off topic so back to what everyone would do.

@larafan4life - i can understand why you do find it selfish, i guess it sort of is :o But to be honest my organs wont be much good anyway since im riddled with illness and theyre straining to keep me alive.

I want my organs to be donated. Anyone who doesn't want this is very selfish.

But they're MINE! :p And anyone who would want my organs after I'm done with them would be crazy after all the **** i'd probably put them through. If your body got MOT'd, mine would fail :p

This poll needed one more option -- I don't care.
Once you become remains, what happens to them doesn't matter. You won't care and you won't even know. If they don't follow your wishes, you won't know, and if you did there isn't anything you could do.

So I didn't vote :D

On a serious note, I think I'll just get burried.

I used to want to be cremated until I went to my son's grandads funeral. Very moving and 'good' in the sense of celebration and ritual, so now I am not so sure.


I did hanker for this lovely wicker type coffin until someone said 'oh you mean like a picnic basket'.....not quite the image I was thinking of.

I have a better idea. Since I plan to go out in a blaze of glory during the zombpocalypse, I'll be coming back as a zombie.

It doesn't look like a picnic basket at all!

Something really awkward and difficult, like being cremated and scattered at the summit of Mt Everest or the bottom of the Mariana Trench. Take that, friends and family! :mis:


Mariana Trench?

What are you, MEGATRON?

I'd like to be cremated and dumped at sea.

Used to just go along with the idea of being buried but since my Nanna ended up having to be cremated, its totally changed my views. I really don't like the idea of being buried and just having my body rot under the ground.

I'd rather be cremated. :)

It isn't me, but my husband has given me the virtually impossible task of scattering his ashes over Lambeau Field. Not sure how I'm going to manage that one. :confused:

Should have a "I Don't Know" option because now I can't vote.:(

I haven't really thought about it.
