You get an organ and YOU get an organ!![rebelmouse-image 18354787 is_animated_gif=
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=
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=
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=
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=
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=
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=
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=
Just dump me face down in the closest ditch.
SURPRISE!#@!!#@!![rebelmouse-image 18979067 is_animated_gif=
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=
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=
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=
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=
Meow...[rebelmouse-image 18979072 is_animated_gif=
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=
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=
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=
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=
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=
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=
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=
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.

Being an emergency responder is a high-stress job.
It's a career with long, laborious hours.
There is always a hint of danger. And death is always around the corner.
So we as a society could try to help these people out and not put ourselves in unnecessary danger.
These workers and the world already has enough trouble without my stupid.

I hated science classes.
As soon as I could I ran.
But it follows me.
Because science can be downright disturbing.
That's why I blocked out so many of the details.
"What's the scariest thing that science has proven real?"
As if knowledge isn't scary enough, let's her more...

Well that is the antithesis of comfort. Life is so fun.
Ever since Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope opened on May 25, 1977, a devoted fanbase developed.
And that fanbase has opinions.
Lots and lots of opinions.
Redditor Ebo8000 wanted to know:
"What is your most controversial take on Star Wars?"
"LASERS LOCK DOORS. LASERS OPEN DOORS. LASERS KNOW WHAT YOU WANT THE DOOR TO DO."
"…you shoot the bloody door panel!"
"Why put the door control RIGHT NEXT to the door? Put the door control system in a breaker box."
"Shoot the breaker box, now the whole floor is closed until someone can figure out what happened."
"Almost look like those doors just exist as dramatic elements..."
"Not sure if controversial but they need to take the franchise and yeet it 200 years in the future."
Design Fail? No!
"The Death Stars weren't badly designed they were just badly managed."
"All in all it sounds like a fairly effective defence when you consider the design philosophy."
"The entire universe has a cool factor that outweighs the atrocious storytelling."
"Bro imagine the following movies, but if they were in Star Wars universe."
"Top Gun - But it's you know, Wedge or something"
"Ford versus Ferrari - But it's podracing or swoop racing"
"He was never a character. He was a cool helmet."
"He was a cool jetpack too."
Time for the weather...
"Han is actually older than Obi-Wan due to Time Dilation."
"Time dilation in a universe where every planet and moon has the same gravity and atmosphere?"
"And just 1 biome."
"That way they only need one Weather Channel per planet."
"And over to Klaatu for the Tatooine weather report. Klaatu?"
"It's still sunny."
These are the droids we're looking for.
"Star Wars is actually the life story of C-3PO—think about it."
Fan is short for fanatic.
"Fans ruined the whole franchise."
So, did your controversial Star Wars opinion make the list?
People clarified what actually terrified them most about death
"I don't fear being dead. I fear dying."
"Yeah, that's usually the issue. It's why that quote doesn't mean much, to a lot of people."
Concept Of Loss
People provided an analogy to articulate what ceasing to exist must feel like.
It's About Time
Consciousness Is Life
Like Being Under
"That is very true, but for me, that's the closest amalgamation of what it probably feels like."
When In Deep Sleep
"Yeah in contrast to sleep where you can actually feel like time has passed when you wake up."
Think Line Between Death And Slumber
"As CGPGrey puts it, your bed might very well be a suicide machine."
People opened up about their insecurities around the concept of death.
Fear Of What Comes Next
The Circle Of Death
"But you won’t be able to. You just won’t!"
When Faith Fails You
"what do you mean I'm going to hell?! I was a good person and attended church regularly!"
It was sweet and beautifully done. The 1962 episode was titled, "Nothing in the Dark."
That's how I imagine it to be.
