Was listening to NPR and heard this ver cool show about arranging composting our bodies when we die. I have always thought embalming and being put in a box is ghoulish. I don't like funerals and viewings are the worst. This seems even better than cremation. I hD mot heard of it, but remember frequenting cemeteries with my grandparents still traumatized by seeing my great grandmotherin her coffin. I thought it was awful. my grandmother told me itcwas archaic and would be done more sensibly when I grew up. She would be 105 now --took jer aong time to be right about this.

I think it was mentioned though I listened to a few others on npr on subject. It makes sense to me

I've donated my body to the local medical school.

Perfect example of what ignoring all medical advice, can do to the human body ?

@Fernapple not sure I understand what you mean

That is cool. I loved that idea when I read the book Stiff.: The Curious life of human cadavers. It was so touching. How the med students got to know the cadaver assigned them as the body told its story. For instance one broke their arm as a child. One cadaver was a doctor and had a tattoo on her butt that was a message to whoever got her body.

@LenHazell53 Sorry, deleted a stray coma, think it makes more sense now.

When I lived in the keys I used to tell my husband to.just toss me way out so the marine life would eat me. He'smy ex now, probably wasn't wise to do that
