I thought I'd share this BBC article about the new Liquefaction Unit .
I've always regretted that the only possiblites offered for exiting the stage, were tightly linked to religions. (cremation, coffins ...)
This liquefaction unit seems to be more ecological, and could please the atheists, as it is more of a raw return to nature, whereas cremation has kept a very strong religious link.
But I do admit I'd still prefer being fed to the lions.
Edit: fixed link, sorry, one too many slashes.
Just tan me hide when I'm dead, Fred...
Some cemetery in CA does just that. You can be buried in anything that doesn't impede decomposition, ie., sheet, blanket, cardboard box - even naked. Embalming is not allowed. There are no markers (you can be located only by GPS) and there is no landscaping, if I remember correctly.
