Morbid People Explain What They Want To Happen To Their Bodies When They Die

You get an organ and YOU get an organ!!

[rebelmouse-image 18354787 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

I don't really care, but I'd prefer that my organs are taken and donated.

Save the trees.

[rebelmouse-image 18354789 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Obviously once I'm dead it won't matter, but I'd prefer a green burial. Don't buy a fancy coffin, don't embalm, and certainly don't waste resources with putting me in a concrete vault. I don't see the point in going to the trouble of letting my corpse take up all that space when there are people and animals alive that need space to live in. And embalming chemicals are harmful. So either green burial or tree pod burial so the earth can have me back.

Doctor, doctor take me!

[rebelmouse-image 18350933 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

I definitely care. I would be absolutely pissed to find out that lots of money was spent on an expensive burial. Make me useful and burn what's left. As a second option, donate me to science.

Fire Up the BBQ!

[rebelmouse-image 18354790 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Take what's good then burn the rest, bury it, feed it to the pigs BrickTop style, I won't be aware of it anyway!

Up! Up and Away!

[rebelmouse-image 18354791 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Not that i could particularly care but what i would really like is:

To be shot into deep space in the hopes of crash landing on some distant planet and becoming the precursor for life on that planet.

Into the wind...

[rebelmouse-image 18354792 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

I want to be cremated and set free into the wind somewhere nice in nature. The idea of being buried has always freaked me out. I don't really care if I have a plaque or something somewhere.

Walking Dead style!

[rebelmouse-image 18346090 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Bang me, eat me, I don't care, you're dead you're dead.

A hole is a hole.

[rebelmouse-image 18979066 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Just dump me face down in the closest ditch.

SURPRISE!#@!!#@!!

[rebelmouse-image 18979067 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

I've had this planned out for years. I want to be buried in a spring-loaded casket and posed like I'm waving. Why? Because I want to scare the hell out of future archaeologists. I know I'd appreciate a find like that.

Lemme just settle in for a long winter's nap.

[rebelmouse-image 18979068 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Buried. I have had recurring nightmares where I die and am somehow still able to see and feel after death despite being unable to move or speak, and thus feel every second of cremation until my eyes are destroyed. Needless to say, watching videos on the cremation process didn't really help either. I just want to skip embalming, get thrown in a comfy box, and buried.

Y'all come and get it!

[rebelmouse-image 18979069 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Not at all. Dump my dead body in the woods so my body can feed the plants, insects and animals just as I fed off them when I was alive.

Just between us...

[rebelmouse-image 18979070 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

I won't be conscious. My body could be defiled, desecrated, or dumped and I still wouldn't say a word.

How Terminator!

[rebelmouse-image 18979071 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Cryonics!!

Meow...

[rebelmouse-image 18979072 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

I'm probably going to die alone and then my cat will eat me, so no.

Take pieces of me everywhere.

[rebelmouse-image 18979073 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

I would rather not die in one piece. Preferably squished by a boulder or blown to bits in an explosion. As a ghost, I would be really sad if I saw my body intact, but I couldn't get back in there. Like if I had drowned or died with a small bullet wound.

Follow the man who follows the Cosmos!

[rebelmouse-image 18979074 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

I follow the philosophy of Neil DeGrasse Tyson on this one:

'I want to be buried, so flora and fauna may dine on me, the way I have dined on flora and fauna my entire life'

Being cremated would be the worst, what a waste of energy

Do it all!

[rebelmouse-image 18979075 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

If I could have my way I'd have my ashes infused into a tombstone and dropped into the Mariana Trench.

Now who gets to sign for that?!

[rebelmouse-image 18979076 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

I want my skeleton cleaned and donated to my high school, just because I want to know what would happen if they received a shipment of human remains.

Would they try to send it back? Or would that be too disrespectful? Would some science teacher volunteer to have an actual human skeleton in their classroom? The possibilities are endless!

If it works for Harrison it works me us!

[rebelmouse-image 18979077 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

I want to be encased in carbonite like Han Solo. Hang me on the wall for eternity.

Keep the laughs coming!

[rebelmouse-image 18979078 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

I want to be stuffed a la Jeremy Bentham. Just stick me in a weird place that people walk by every day and don't make it obvious that it's an actual human. Donate all my useful bits cause I essentially just want to be a prop. Maybe a theater company could use me. Reason? Just for laughs!

From birthday suit to burial suit, same thing.

[rebelmouse-image 18979079 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

I want to be buried naked, no embalming, no coffin, just a bio degradable shroud and to be buried with lots of flowers, seeds, earthworms maybe even a tree planted on the burial site. Just a nice natural transition from this physical form into the world around me.

People Explain Which Lessons Aren't Taught In History Class But Should Be

It's highly believed that it is important to learn history as a means to improve our future.

What is often overlooked is that what is taught in history class is going to be very different depending on where you went to school.

And this isn't just internationally, even different regions of the United states will likely have very different lessons on American history.

This frequently results in our learning fascinating, heartbreaking and horrifying historical facts which our middle or high school history teachers neglected to teach us.

Redditor Acherontia_atropos91 was curious to learn things people either wished they had learned, or believe they should have learned, in their school history class, leading them to ask:

So apparently we are in the endemic phase of this nonsense.

We have light at the end of the tunnel.

So what now?

Where do we go from here?

Normal seems like an outdated word.

How do we get back to normal though?

Is it even possible?

What are reaching back to?

Life pre-Covid.

Those were the days.

If only we could bring them back.

Redditor hetravelingsong wanted to discuss our new normal in this hopeful "endemic" phase. So they asked:

What do you believe?

Is there a GOD in the sky?

Is he guiding us and helping us?

Life is really hard. Why is that is a big entity is up there loving us?

Atheists have taken a lot of heat for what feels like shunning GOD.

What if they've been right all along?

Maybe let's take a listen and see what they really think.

Redditor __Jacob______ wanted to hear from the people who don't really believe all that "God" stuff. They asked:

"Atheists, what do you believe in?"
