Too bad Suharto's gone.  Trump would have admired him.

Huh. Ordinarily, they'd cut costs by simply moving the tombstones... With hilarious consequences.

Nah, they'd crush the tombstones and use them for aggregate.

No, I prefer it well cooked...

If we're going to get mad about moving dead ancestors, shouldn't we also get mad every dead species we displace when we go mining or drilling for oil?

I don't mean to make light of the situation, but they are DEAD.

If the family can't or won't make accommodations for them, why should anyone else?

It's like getting mad because millions of cows, pigs, and chickens are killed every year to produce food for humans. Unless you are a member of PETA, who cares?

Well, if they use Feta cheese, I'll give it a try.
That shiat's great on omelettes.

Well, if you go far enough back in evolution, oil is made of dead ancestors, or at least dead relatives.

I can only hope that the evil alternate universe Trump switches places with our universe's Trump and turns out to be really nice.

I thought oil was made from the poop that the elder gods of Lovecraftian fame gave us.

Well, ancestors, my understanding is that Muslim scholars argue this but most are fine past 40 years if I'm not mistaken.
"At least one person had agreed to the exhumations, but other families had not given consent. One woman, Iyum, said the remains of her two daughters had been disinterred without her permission."
Oh. That's kind of not exactly ancestors.

But, hey, the argument is about the cemetary.
"The company also accused those who refused of exaggerating their concerns as a negotiating tactic to extract higher prices to sell their homes and unearth their ancestors."
Oh. That's kind of different from public. I'm fairly sure that that's the opposite of public land.

/Even the supposedly expose is light in highlighting these points (from what I skimmed).

Yeah, no.

Thanks for playing.

There's a cemetery in Wellington, New Zealand that feels really off. After a while you realise the layout of the gravestones is the problem, there's no way they could each mark a normal grave. The reason is that they were shifted a few hundred meters to make way for a motorway extension and they just kind of stuck everything randomly in the new place so while there are tombs under there they are all mixed up

There's a really good 99% Invisible podcast on a similar topic. Apparently finding space for dead people and living people is a problem in Asia.

My mom was always worried about accidentally ordering her dead grandmother on toast when we went to Quebec. This would be perfect for her!

I still think "Fury of a Thousand Dead Ancestors" would be a good name for a ghost pepper hot sauce.
