People are really weird about corpses. Cremate me, put me in a Folgers can and blow the ashes in someone's face, I don't give a shiat, I'm dead.

Did exactly that with my brother when he died. I swear he made the wind blow the ashes up my nose when I scattered them in the canyon. No superpowers. Yet.

I want to be fed to vultures or some kind of large cat in hopes that I will be reborn as one.

Jeez, you asked for a dead body, they gave you a dead body. So picky :P

I just want my remains scattered over Disneyland, but don't cremate me.

A relative recently passed at the hospital and was transported to the funeral home by their staff.  Part of the process of signing the contract with the funeral director was IDing the body and attesting to it on paper.

Don't know if that's just their best practices or state law here, but someone must have skipped a step or two in the article.

That's because you were supposed to smoke them, not snort them.

Burnt carbon is burnt carbon. It doesn't matter if it's Grandpa, another person or a block of wood. It's all the same. And I seriously doubt that whoever is scraping Grandpa out of the furnace is paying attention to who or what they're scraping up. It's all silly.

But it's better than wasting land on cemeteries.

With the number of Covid deaths, funeral homes are being slammed. I'm not surprised that a mistake was made, only that it's not happening more often.
