Do you think people should be cremated or buried?

I want to be cremated. God knows what weird things the mortician will do with my dead body.

... I kind of want to be a mortician. I'll probably mess with the dead people I prepare for funerals. That's where that thought came from.

And I don't want to be grave robbed. But then again, I want to request a funny and completely idiotic message to be put on my gravestone when I'm buried. Such as:

"If you desecrate this grave, I will haunt your ass."

I'd like a classic viking burial, put me in a wooden boat laden with oil soaked tinder, push me off to sea and shoot flaming arrows at me. Even if i have to be cremated beforehand for legal reasons at least send me off to sea and shoot flaming arrows at me.

My dad passed away recently and he was cremated

It was much cheaper than a full burial and he always requested it

So I think people should be cremated, makes more economical sense

Cremated. I also wouldn't want anyone else presuming to make that decision for me.

I'd rather be buried, but cremation is more financially feasible and environmentally friendly, so I'll probably end up cremated. I just like the idea of me still being around in some form, even if it's just a skeleton. Also, I find keeping someone's ashes in an urn exceptionally creepy.

Honestly, I don't think it matters.

In time, everything will be wiped out of existence. I don't associate myself with supernatural rituals. Don't care if my body was donated to science or organs donated to someone who needed it.

I don't like the idea of "paying respects to the dead" by burying them in a coffin or putting them in an urn... as if they're able to see what you're doing to their body. I personally don't believe there is life beyond death.

Donated to medical science is the only smart thing to do

Well, I believe that I have no right to dictate what other people do with their remains, but I will admit that cremation is less expensive and saves space in the long run; however, I personally want my fresh remains donated to the University of Tennessee Medical Center (AKA: The Body Farm) in Knoxville, Tennessee. Possibly the Western Carolina University in Cullowhee, North Carolina. My corpse will be used to help study the decomposition process.
