  • My Last Will and Testament, Part 1

    Posted on April 21st, 2008 Brian 3 comments

    No, I haven’t been diagnosed with anything. I just saw this article on Wired about green funerals that are coming into vogue, and I just wanted it on the record as to how I’d like my remains disposed of:

    Bury me in a shallow grave in the forest.

    Barring that, which I’m sure would violate several jurisdictions worth of laws, one of these green funeral things would be a decent second choice.

    • I want a viking funeral. Flaming arrow shot into a ship that my corpse is floating on.

      While bagpipes play “Oh Danny Boy”

      Of course, this is never going to happen because I plan on living forever.

    • arth, that nourish’d thee, shall claim
      Thy growth, to be resolved to earth again,
      And, lost each human trace, surrendering up
      Thine individual being, shalt thou go
      To mix for ever with the elements,
      To be a brother to the insensible rock,
      And to the sluggish clod, which the rude swain
      Turns with his share, and treads upon. The oak
      Shall send his roots abroad, and pierce thy mould.
