What's the cheapest way to be disposed of after you die? We were just talking about funerals in chat and I'd much rather those funds go towards food and alcohol for a party instead of a funeral. I always figured cremation would be cheapest but I just want to be sure. I definitely don't want a service as I don't believe in god or anything and I'd rather not blow money on that kind of thing. I was in the army, can I get a free cremation or is that only for retirees? Let it be known now that I, Vincent Gonzales, being of slightly tipsy mind, wish that my corpse be disposed of in the cheapest possible way and any funds allocated for that purpose above and beyond the disposing part be used for a party for anyone who wants to go.

About 5 comments down from your post on my friends' list is zombified's most recent one, about discount caskets at Costco.

Why? Because your brain is rotted from too much anonymous snark and online freaky sex.

You're a veteran. You get extras.

I may be mistaken, but you say that "freaky sex" thing like it's bad...

Dumped from a car on the highway.


Potter's Field.


I plan to disappear like Obi-Wan, leaving only my sox and bra behind.

Then you can come back in double exposure form and give us all advice!

a garbage bag, a rock, a river, and a wish.

Instead of a river can I use a fountain at Disneyland? It's the happiest place on earth!

well, if you go that route, you could probably cut out the expense of the garbage bag and the rock.

congratulations! you've just found the cheapest method of body disposal - just have someone prop your cold stiff ass up in a fountain at Disneyland, and watch the tourists congregate.

If you want, i could easily get rid of you. I know some guys with a boat, i've got some rope, cement, and there's a 2 mile deep canyon out there.

I'll just have to make sure you're wrapped enough in rope you dont come loose and go floating back to the surface.

I want my corpse to be fed to lions at the zoo. I mean, as long as I don't die of any icky diseases that would be gross for the lions. I suspect the zoo people are all picky about that, though. Still, it would be cheap.

Dude, I will be more than happy to dispose of you after you die. I and my friend will be happy to take you body into the middle of the desert, and throw it into a ditch, then cover you up and stake a makeshift wooden cross into the ground, a la Evil Dead. And all for the cost of as much alcohol we can drink at your going-away party!

Man, all these smart people and no one's mentioned the body farm?

Go nuts. ;-) http://www.cnn.com/2000/HEALTH/10/31/body.farm/

Fer real.

I've already donated my corpse to science. They'll use it, they'll burn it, and the end.

Everyone above is an idiot.


What you should do, see, is donate your body. To Arby's.
