Cryogenics still interesting - may allow the future scientists to rummage around the mostly intact innards of their ancient ancestors  :D

I have asked for my ashes to be divided, and my insurance be used to take them to all the places I have not yet been able to visit. Just sprinkling a few out at each location. My wife has asked I spread her ashes in Washington DC among the cherry trees, and around the Library of Congress. If She goes first I will save some to mix with mine so we will still be together too.
I don’t see a need to anything more than a gathering of friends at my death, and I hope some good laughs.

Then you'd best die in a comical fashion  :D

Tank, I hope to die that way. It would be a bummer to die without a smile on my face, and I suspect some of the Religious right will smile when I am gone too. Lets make it a party time all around LOL..

You mean like Gene Roddenberry's ashes getting shot into space? I think that's still planned at some point, along with his wife.

Not exactly. I was referring to this type of sky burial.

The universe has eaten our dead bodies for eons, no reason to change that now.
