Give me a work permit to emigrate and you can have my body when I die

Just bribe some workers at a crematorium and have them switch out the bodies with some logs. When the loved ones receive the ashes they will not know whether or not it is from a body or a tree.

I'm worried they might come for me. I've been told I'm a dead lay.

The MIL wanted to donate her body but you don't get to choose what they do with you.  You can be a cadaver for the students or use you for laboratory tests.  They wouldn't guarantee she'd be a cadaver for the students so she went with cremation.  Hasn't complained about her decision yet.

Is this anything like the letters I get from the College I graduated from 2-3 times a month begging for money?

You know the ones.

Where the Minimum suggested donation is $500, The regular suggested donation is $1,500, and the preferred donation $5,000 or higher?  And they want these donations each month.

I will make them a deal.  Get me a job where I can actually use my degree, and get paid over $30K per month, and I will gladly give them $500 per year.

I'll do my best... starting with Leafs fans... they never have anything to live for anyway.

I'm sure the coming Civil War 2.0 will help them out once they smuggle them across the border.

Shouldnt there be a surge in supply as the boomers start dying en masse?

I blame self entitled boomers.

I mean back in the 1890s didn't they just dig up bodies due to lack of available skeletons to use for the learning?

Wasn't that part of evil mc mustacheface's grift in devil in the white city?

/whose name i'm currently too lazy to look up even though his body is buried like 40 minutes down the road.

My orthopedic surgeon actually asked me if I would donate my body to his medical school, because of a very unique genetic defect in my major joints. I agreed. The thought of my skeleton being used for scare pranks on freshmen is quite amusing, in a macabre kind of way.

I never understood schools asking for alumni help in any way.  I paid to go there, the school is for-profit.  Why in the ever-loving fark would I just give them stuff after I graduate?  They didn't give me an education - they sold it to me.

Not only that, but it seems to me that for the most part schools should be investing in artificial cadavers.  They cost 10x as much but last far, far longer than 10x as long and they don't need preservatives to slow decay since they don't decay in the first place.

They can have mine, that's my plan. I would rather donate my body for specific research in regards to Neurofibromatosis, but past research has informed me that few if any schools/labs accept such donations unless a case is clearly atypical or otherwise significant ( Ie, cases of NF which have led to full-blown MS.)

Donate any viable blood, organ, or tissue, then study the rest. Bits of my body will "live on" and people will know (something) about me after I'm gone.

Maybe we can create some contagious and sometimes-fatal disease.

No, but they are pulverized into a nearly-fine grit, which you can discern from ash.

My clapped out genitalia
Is not so bad for me
As the complete and utter failure
Every time I try to pee
I'm dying from your love, my love
I'm your spirochaetal clown
I've left my body to science
But I'm afraid they've turned it down

They do not burn but they do calcify and crumble. Besides, who looks through the ashes of their loved ones for bone fragments?

Do they "have" to be dead?

stuffy: Do they "have" to be dead?


Serious answer: No.  You can donate your time as a fake patient at a medical school... though as a job it pays around $15/hr.

If it's a regular gig, I think I'll found something to do after retirement.

I don't know, but I strongly suspect it's more a one-day-per freshman class or something.  I vaguely seem to recall reading about a woman who 'went pro' at it but had to travel quite a bit and carefully schedule her tour to line up with available jobs.  And for all I know... I saw it on CSI or something and am only recalling it as something real.
