I want to donate my body to art.

LINK and I suggest you look at this
I find this human body art to be dark and beautiful. I understand that some people may find this to be sick and morally wrong but I don't care.

If that doesn't work out then I want a viking funeral. Being cremated at sea sounds very romantic.
I also want the sea animals to eat my ashes.

I also wouldn't mind to use my body as fertilizer for the plants.
Pretty soon there will be no way to bury people so that is a temporary option.

Once I am dead I have no further use for my body. Use whatever spare parts that can be salvaged (of course I carry a donor card) and dispose of the rest in the cheapest and most convenient way.

I'd donate my body to medical research if it wasn't so much of a hassle. Apart from finding a medical school that wants it, here in the UK you need to inform your close relatives and any one of them can say no when you die. WTF is that all about?

Cremated, the ashes scattered at sea or the beach. Even tough i'll be dead, the tought of being embalmed, in a heavy casket in ground gives me a really bad claustrophobic sufficating feeling. I don't like feeling i'll forever be trapped somewhere. I want to be free.

I want to be cremated, and then for my ashes to be mixed into the soil used to pot trees. I want to be a redwood, a cactus, a jade plant, or an apple tree. Anything really as long as I can nurture it and theoretically destroy my carbon footprint.

Did you ever see that movie called "Eat the Rich"?
Came out in the 1970s, I think.
