Really good thing I'm not a funeral director. I'm not sure I could be trusted with an oven that burns bodies. It would become a 'if you only have a hammer every problem looks like a nail' situation.

scottydoesntknow: xanadian: MaxxLarge: Il Douchey: /How could they tell what he did anyway, and who cares? wasn't it just a big pile of dismembered ashes after the cremation?

That's my question. It's not like he swapped heads in order to avoid changing someone's suit, or something. The guy was getting CREMATED. Big f*ckin' deal.

And was too damn fat to fit in the oven (or whatever they call it).

Not only that, it can be a safety hazard. A crematorium burned down after an extremely fat person basically turned ino a 440lb grease fire.

You're always gonna have problems lifting a body in one piece. Apparently the best thing to do is cut up a corpse into six pieces and pile it all together. And when you got your six pieces, you gotta get rid of them, because it's no good leaving it in the deep freeze for your mum to discover, now is it? Then I hear the best thing to do is feed them to pigs. You got to starve the pigs for a few days, then the sight of a chopped-up body will look like curry to a pisshead. You gotta shave the heads of your victims, and pull the teeth out for the sake of the piggies' digestion. You could do this afterwards, of course, but you don't want to go sievin' through pig shiat, now do you? They will go through bone like butter. You need at least sixteen pigs to finish the job in one sitting, so be wary of any man who keeps a pig farm. They will go through a body that weighs 200 pounds in about eight minutes. That means that a single pig can consume two pounds of uncooked flesh every minute. Hence the expression, "as greedy as a pig."

Magnanimous_J: Here's the part that grosses me out. Most of the time the bodies are not embalmed prior to cremation. They just put em in a box and throw them in the oven. Now if an 800 pounder was too big and had to be cut up, what are the odds that cutting off the arms, legs and head were enough to do the job? I would think they would have to cut the torso in half, with all the gory organ spillage that would imply. Can you imagine the mess that would make?

When my mother died I got a letter from the funeral home that cremation was permanent and irreversible. After I stopped laughing I called them up and told them I just couldn't decide and asked them if they could cut her in half and just cremate half of her.

This is an increasing problem for crematories - they are typically rated around 250 lbs/hr.

A fatty can flash flame and cause the afterburner to be overloaded causing excessive smoke and exceedances of the allowable emission rates for particulate matter and CO for incinerators.

DieAchtung: JohnBigBootay: MorePeasPlease: Nobody cared about the body when it was ramping up to 800 lbs. while it was alive...

Now it's not unreasonable to assume someone in that poor health did not have a lot of people who cared for him, but that's all it is is an assumption because there's simply nothing about it in the article. I have a grotesquely obese family member. He makes horrible decisions and pisses me off frequently but I do care for him.

and if his fat ass doesn't fit in the crematory what would you have them do to get him cremated? 800lbs; it should have been common knowledge among all parties that it wouldn't be a standard cremation.


Christ at 800 pounds you should just throw him in a steel foundry.

A few years back in my professional career, commercial carpenter, my company landed a job remodeling a funeral home. The director was funny in a gallows humor kind of way. Anyways, one day during lunch he started describing how a body in a crematorium plumps up like a Ballpark Frank, very descriptively. Lunch was a short affair that day. He seemed like the type whose solution to an 800lb body would be to go all Fargo on it.

A long time ago, a friend of mine got a job driving a limo for a funeral home which also owned a crematorium nearby. On the second day of work, he went to the crematorium on an errand, walked in, and asked "where are the cracklins, I can smell them, and I love cracklins". Turns out there was a very large person being cremated, and indeed there were no cracklins. He lasted another day or two then was let go. I assume for "being insensitive".

Dear wide fellows,

I'll admit, I could stand to lose a few pounds. Maybe a few dozen pounds, if I really pushed it.

But let's get real: when you could stand to lose a few hundred pounds, there is absolutely nothing in life for you that won't be a custom build. There will be things that simply don't exist for you, because it makes no economic sense to build them.

Crematoriums, for example, are one of those things.

But you're one of a kind, to the relief of so many. You should go out in a one of a kind way. Let me just put this out there:

Darth Vader style funeral pyre.

For extra points, have someone project a younger, thinner Force Ghost in to the rising smoke plume.

You're welcome.
