Hopefully any useful bits will have been "harvested" before these ceremonies will take place : i.e. organ donation.If your body is not fit for organ donation you could donate it for medical research,although you could end up in the passenger seat of a medical student's car to enable him to drive in the "car-pool" lane. If you're going to cremate the leftovers, consider having this music played as the coffin goes through the curtains...//www.youtube.com/watch?v=4bB5xL577r4
a court rejected an attempt by a brother and sister on the island of Reunion, which is French territory, to keep their dead mother's body refrigerated at home. The pair had wanted to keep her in a glass-topped freezer in the cellar.
[Jeremy Bentham] As requested in his will, his body was preserved and stored in a wooden cabinet, termed his "Auto-icon". Originally kept by his disciple Dr. Southwood Smith, it was acquired by University College London in 1850. The Auto-icon is kept on public display at the end of the South Cloisters in the main building of the College. For the 100th and 150th anniversaries of the college, the Auto-icon was brought to the meeting of the College Council, where he was listed as "present but not voting". Tradition holds that if the council's vote on any motion is tied, the auto-icon always breaks the tie by voting in favour of the motion.The Auto-icon has always had a wax head, as Bentham's head was badly damaged in the preservation process. The real head was displayed in the same case for many years, but became the target of repeated student pranks including being stolen on more than one occasion. It is now locked away securely.
I prefer to be alive when I'm being stuffed!
Come on sheepy, do you fancy stuffing?
