JasonOfOrillia: hackhix: Wait, there's more!

"Let's say that a decade or so ago, someone in your family found a good deal on a burial plot." (new window - scroll down)

My parents bought me a burial plot for my birthday. It's in the same graveyard as their plots and my grandparents. Needless to say it wasn't my best birthday present ever.

I've been pondering this scenario for a while now.

Should I die, my corpse is going to be dead. It will not live, it will not move, it will not think. Now it occurs to me that my corpse will not be so concerned about my condition as my living body is. You could dress up my corpse in the gaudiest of colors, you could pose my corpse in the ridiculoust of positions, you could do anything to my corpse.

Yet I would not care.

You see, at that point I am necessarily dead. If you're calling my body a corpse, then I'm dead. You can throw me in the creek, you can throw me in the fire, you can prostitute me out like a hooker and it's no big deal. I'm dead, I don't care.

You see those hundred-thousand-dollar services for people who died?? Good God! No, post a parody of me on your blog, and then toss my corpse in the woods. I'm not using it anymore, so it would be an insult to me if you paraded me around like some porcelain doll of yours. Shameful business, that.

It was pointless!
It was... short!

I can't help but think every commenter in that article uses Fark.

Smirky the Wonder Chimp: tl;dr. Someone sum it up for those of us with incredibly short attention spans, please.

Summary simply doesn't do the genius of his work justice. You really need to read the essay in its entirety. I realize in this click-through link-festooned era attention can be at a premium, but I think you will find giving it the time a careful reading warrants to be well worth it.

I'm sorry - even if Sartre DID say that, this guy has completely misconstrued him.

"Let me run a scenario by you."

Get off the dinosaur PC subby and link to sites that support mobile devices.
