In other news, it's legal to send human remains by post.

Also.  You may also wish to have them couriered, not mailed, you cheap bastard.

FedEx guys are drug dealers. They just don't know it.

It doesn't matter. You're dead.

Or...

You're dead. It doesn't matter.

/Either way it doesn't matter because you're dead and it doesn't matter

*shrug* It's all the same to the person in the box.

In other news.  Sudden influx of improved customer service at New Jersey post office.  Because haunting it any other way wouldn't be noticed by staff or customers.

Surprise..... I died of ricin and anthrax poisoning... enjoy my ashes!

Spilling the ashes are just like when you spill weed. It doesn't matter what you do, you will NEVER get it all up unless you dropped it on glass.

I was waiting for that.

Two months ago, I helped a friend spread her sister's ashes on a beach.  We mixed a few ounces of her remains (light gray sand-like particles) in a secluded spot where no one could see us.  It was somber, quiet and reverent.  Not as weird as I was expecting.

You know why this is news? Because out of 550+ million pieces of mail processed daily less than 2% fail to make it to their destination.

FTFA: In October, 2012, the cremated ashes of Henry Lefebvre mysteriously appeared at a San Diego car wash 17 years after his death. They were eventually returned to his family.

This got me all excited. Henry Lefebvre's ashes turned up in a carwash? AWESOME! The man continues to subvert notions of social space even after his death!

Followed the link and was very disappointed to learn it was Henry Efebvre, not the real Henry Lefebvre.

Exactly.

If I wanted this to happen, I would hope I have a friend who would take them down and do it themselves. I'd make sure to leave enough in the will for 1st class plane tickets and a weeks stay in a nice hotel as motivation. But thats just me.

Nah, they went through the x-ray and someone decided TERRORISM!!11!!!, so they're probably still at a lab somewhere being tested to make sure they aren't anthrax.

"I just felt like I lost him all over again," she told WMUR-TV.

 You didn't.  They did.  Totally different.

This.

It'll be newsworthy when the dead person makes a complaint.

Fed-Ex and UPS wil not handle cremated remains. The US Postal service will and most funeral establishments will send them either Registered Mail or by Express Maill (Overnight).

Registered Mail is usually considered the safest. It takes a few days, but every postal employee who handles the package must sign for it. The post office now places a "Cremated Remains" sticker on all packages that are identified as holding such. I've worked in the funeral business in Floridda for 28 years (we mail a lot of cremated remains north) and have never had a problem with Registered Mail.

Cremated remains that are sent internationally are sent via the air lines and are treated much like a body (that means a lot of paperwork and extra fees.)

I think I'd place the blame on the sender. Double box, extra bags, address labels, lots of packing material, at the least. And Registered Mail.

They know. Its not really their concern what is in every package, even if they had a right to find out.
