Really, they should move his un-embalmed body into an isolated tunnel with stalactites, to be fossilized for distant future scientists.

The lockdown's warped my sense of reality a bit and the first thought that came to mind was, "The character from Orphan Black?"'

Anyway, passing of a giant.

Now there's an interesting idea.  Back in 2018, researchers figured out how to artificially create fossils in a day instead of waiting for nature to take millions of years.

That'd be a hell of a way to be buried, wouldn't it?

RIP See you in 1.5 million years.

I've told my friends I want to be buried in a box with cement so they can cast me in 1000 or two.
