No it's a empty shell.

Nope

No. I would like my transplantable organs to be harvested , but don't really care about what happens to the rest

Yes, I want to be buried so people can visit my grave as I visit my ancestors graves for time to time. I'm a family historian and "graving" as it's called is a most fascinating part of the hobby.

I guess I am the weird one here. I want no autopsy (unless I perish under dubious means)... I want no formaldehyde pumped into my veins... Just put me in a pine box and pack me in salt. I'd like to be buried on my property... Or a corner of it. Perhaps it is my fascination of ancient Egypt.

-OR-

Build a big-ass funeral pyre.. One that will last for days. Put me at the top and everyone can come party! Tell your favorite story... Or make one up!

Just for laughs.
Please don't bury me
Down in that cold, cold ground
No, I?d rather have 'em cut me up
And pass me all around"
"Throw my brain in a hurricane
And the blind can have my eyes
And the deaf can take both of my ears
If they don't mind the size"
"Give my stomach to Milwaukee
If they run out of beer
Put my socks in a cedar box
Just to get 'em out of here"
"Venus De Milo can have my arms,

I have no concerns since the future is unknown I don't know what would happen to my body.

Well I won't have the slightest concern after my death, that's certain. It does not much concern me now, either. I'd like to have my organs donated but after my experience with my son's wishes in this regard being thwarted by technicalities after his death, I don't have much in the way of expectations there, either.

Yes. Donate anything that is not too decrepit to use, do NOT embalm. I would really like one of those compostable urns you can plant a tree in. I don't want to take up any real estate or poison the earth.

I got mine online and already have my cremation paid for. Picked a Maple tree for the urn.

No

1

Naw. Organ donor. Let other people make good use of it. I won't mind.

2

Not at all. I don't think that I will have any awareness of it.

mine is also going to science, My body will be sliced and diced for education. That is a very exciting thing for me. The body is nothing but a shell the brain walks around in. That is it.

I'm not, I'm donating my body to science

1

Uh, no. I'll be dead. Decomposing... somewhere.

1

...no . And we are running out of usable
land.a living will is necessary to ensure
your wishes,not many have them.

2

Not concerned. I hope medical research will find me useful after they harvest whatever can help anyone needing organs or tissues.

2

Nope. I'll be dead. Nuff said.

2

I'm being cremated and my ashes are being thrown over the Canadian Niagara falls in an urn I made, by some of my former students that are now my friends. All of my older friends are dead already.

2

Not really. I’m dead. I do have my wishes know however. Cremation and I have a biodegradable urn with a seedling for a Maple tree in the top which I have requested my son to plant, hopefully in his yard. I chose the Maple tree because every year, when all those little propeller things and leaves litter his yard he will have to think of me! ?

2

Not at all. I will either donate my body for research, or have the most natural, chemical-free burial possible.

2

How would I be concerned? I would be dead. Keep in mind that it was Christianity that brought back burials in preparation for a survival of the body at resurrection. Now that belief has changed more into only a spirit that survives and no heavenly body at all. Some today look at you and god as the "big spark and little spark." I will die and a spark will start my cremation.

I will be cremated, no concern whatsoever.
