Well... Everything except get cremated, of course.

That's very sweet. I'm thinking how funny this would be if I for some outlandish reason outlived my wife, since she wants to be mummified. I'm thinking the end of a bandage gets caught in the airplane door...

Would an undertaker do that nowadays?

Probably not these days. In the future, who knows. Also, I'd absolutely be willing to break whatever laws there are to get it done. And we have the money to get things done. Also, mummification is just farking cool.

Modern day widow burning.

On the other hand, I don't find this morbid at all, but my family apparently has an odd way of handing/viewing death anyway, so YMMV.

/joined her whole family in singing Happy Bday to a guy with her dead grandma in the room. Was very appropriate, as it turned out there was a related story to my grandmother that was rather sweet. The guys collecting her body were a bit stunned though.

I'm pretty sure my wife would stab me from the grave (if that applied).

No. No it's not.

If he jumped out of the plane with a parachute made out of the skin of his dead wife that would be something.

A urn...meh.

There seems to be some sort of dry, powdery substance floating in the air in here. Wonder what it could be...

I haven't lost my spouse, thank the gods, but I have a hard time understanding this concept of carrying ashes around. I knew a woman who slept with her husband's urn in her bed for years. I don't understand. It's not him. In fact, from what I understand, the actual ashes could be anyone.

Sleep with a shirt or pillow that your spouse used - I get that. You can cuddle a pillow, you can smell a shirt. But an urn of ashes just seems so cold and hard and not anything like a person.

Ah well. We have to grieve in our own way I suppose. I am grateful my husband is alive and well.

You catch that this was part of a fundraiser to pay for his heart surgery.  I thought the British healthcare system paid for everything.  Granted, a thousand pounds sounds a lot cheaper than it probably could have been, but still, I've always had this perception that everything was free, you just had to wait a really long time.  To hear people talk about how great European health systems are, they almost always claim everything is free.

My british relatives talk about how shiatty their health care system is. There are some things that are covered but alot that is not covered. It is especially great when you get to go to the hospital and stay in a ward with 30+ people in one room.

//will never biatch about sharing a room with 3 other people only.

Maybe not, but I'm sure you could find a taxidermist who would.
