This is a question Funerals II

It's been 7 years since we last asked for your funeral stories and what with Lady Voldemort's coming up, we thought we'd ask again.

The deeply upsetting, the sad and the ones that make you want to hug the world all have a place here on b3ta, tell us about them.

Thanks to Pig Bodine for the suggestion

Everyone should leave their body to science.
It's just meat.

There's no point in getting all emotional about it - the person is dead.

Since there's no god or heaven or hell, nothing's going to happen but it rot, so you might as well use the body for education and experiments.

Yes. What's the problem?
Maybe you need to invest in some A Vagabond Patented Body Armour.

If it's just meat
Why don't we donate it to the hungry?

I'd definitely renounce my vegetarian ways if human meat was available.
Of course, it would have to have been raised free range and then killed in a humane way after living a joyous and fulfilling life, I don't want to encourage battery farming.

But seriously, we're eating it already.
Never mind horse lasagnes, who here has genuinely never seen a tattoo going round on the meat of a kebab spit?

Not once
But then again, I've never seen an Alsatian with a tattoo when it was alive.

I normally wait until they're dead before getting the inks out, less chance of being bitten

The Body Farm
Over here you might end up at the Outdoor Research Facility of the Forensic Anthropology Center of the University of Tennessee, aka The Body Farm. Alas, they do not offer tours.

Saw a documentary on that t'other day.

Very interesting.

"Let's put a body in a plastic bin for a while, and see what happens!"

If only there was some B3ta meme about bins

Organ transplants come first
and anatomy departments will not accept a body if it's had anything removed post mortem. I think that's less because they want a full set (they don't mind if bits went missing in life) and more because the people harvesting organs don't have time to do a neat job with the bits they don't need.
