wambu: So no mystery at all, really? That's FARked.
fappomatic: Some years ago my friend, Gary, and I were hunting with his uncle. Jake was up there in years and not in the best of health. He took his favorite spot as Gary and I moved deeper in the woods. Confident that Jake had all the comforts he would need for a day in the woods.Sadly, we found Jake. Seated on the ground and leaning back against a tree. Who knows when he died. At first we thought he'd fallen asleep or hit his nip bottle a little too much. It was one of the saddest, and happiest moments of my life. I hope I go out like that. Rifle in hand, sitting in the woods on a cold day.\CSB
CruJones: This just in: People sometimes create memorials where loved ones died/sponsored by every flowered cross by the road
BarkingUnicorn: So, did he get the little redhaired girl?
Cytokine Storm: douchebag/hater: Meh to all of this; how do you knew he's a Farker? I didn't see that in the article.Original creepy thread.
gadian: Farker still comes off as creepy. I could see wanting to maintain an entire cemetery, but a memorial for a single person that you have no relation to and hunting down the family...creepy.
Useless Destruction of Exergy: CruJones: This just in: People sometimes create memorials where loved ones died/sponsored by every flowered cross by the roadOK, this brings up something that has been bugging me for a long time: if the remains of someone has been buried in a cemetery, placed in a mausoleum, or cremated and sifted into an urn, then what exactly is the purpose of making memorials at the location where they died? Do people think the the spirits of the departed hang around where they shuffled off the mortal coil, kind of like the characters at the end of Our Town? Here's a hint: mortal remains are placed in cemeteries. mausoleums and urns to act as memorials in and of themselves. I could understand if there wasn't a body, such as someone lost at sea, or disintegrated in some type of explosion or crash. Otherwise, you aren't commemorating their life; you are celebrating their death, which is something that most people wouldn't prefer to remember (I suspect), unless you are talking about some type of arch villain that the world is better off without.(And if the spirits of the departed do spend eternity hanging around the sites of their deaths, then all that I can say is that the afterlife is seriously lame.)End rant.
