FTA: Phyllis Jerscheid, owner of Jerschied's Men's Apparel in Victorville, said she would donate a suit to the Winns so he could be buried.

I feel bad for whoever has to dress that body. The guy's been dead a few weeks plus I don't think they'll have an open casket so a suit seems a little unnecessary

the fundrazr goal is $3000 ? Why the fark should a dead person cost 3 grand ? 1 or 2 hundred bucks  should cover the transport of the body and the fuel to burn it as well as a vase to keep the ashes if you are into such a weird farking thing as storing dead people left overs  Burial is farking archaic and non sustainable as global population approaches 10 billion.

MNguy: Begoggle: So people can bury a dead pet dog or cat in the backyard, but not a human.
Obviously if one type of corpse is a health concern, the other would be too.
Sounds like this is a case of making sure somebody gets paid.

Dog food doesn't have the same carcinogen level that many people foods have.  They are more environmentally safe than human bodies who have ingested shiat for calories their entire lives.

Earth to earth, dust to dust and all that.


The problem is folks burying animals that were put to sleep- the chemicals leach out and enter the water table.

Why do people never think of cremation? It cost about $150-$250 and you can either keep the ashes on a shelf or dump them wherever you wish.

Marcus Aurelius: It's a violation of the state's health and safety code to bury a human body anywhere other than an approved and recognized cemetery

Here in PA the back yard is fine and dandy.

About the only rule in PA governing a corpse is that if you prop them up in the living room for more than a day, they have to be on dry ice.

/seriously


It is legal in California unless a City Ordinance prohibits it.  Actually that is true for most states, in Georgia no vault is required if the body is not embalmed a simple pine ox or canvas bag is all that is necessary.   Oh they do make you give the location of the burial so 40 years down the line when some construction crew digs up Grandpa the police don't freak out.
