    When you day, if you have a headstone, what would you want it to say?

    RIP_headstone.jpg

    This thread is obviously not to actually plan out your headstone. If there was one short message (that could fit on a headstone) of how you would want to be remembered, what would it be?

    I'm not planning on being buried; but I would want one of those newfangled video tombstones.

    Nothing, no headstone at all. Gonna be cremated, the ashes cast to the winds. It's a foolish vanity to think anything from our lives will survive over many millennia. A headstone may last for a few hundred years, but Earth has a few billion years yet to go. I'm not investing in a headstone.

    You guys are kind of missing the point of the thread. It is not to actually plan out your headstone. If there was one short message (that could fit on a headstone) of how you would want to be remembered, what would it be?

    Way to be over-the-top dramatic over such a simple question. The only reason people get headstones is because they're narcissistic, have the ego of Ozymandias, and are attempting in vain to immortalize some small bit of themselves, right? Not because their relatives want some sort of memorial that they can regularly visit to obtain closure.

    Ahem.

    If I get a headstone, it would be made of granite or garnet gneiss and would probably read,

    "Welp, guess I'm dead.
    I swear to God, I had something for this..."

    "the whole world can suck my dick" or "get down in this casket and suck my dick" or "come into this casket and get some decreased dick".

    DECREASED or DECEASED? Or I guess it could be both. icon_rolleyes.gif

    Well, I'd hate to be your relatives, because that tombstone won't even give them a good laugh. You might have taken my advice and saved the stone. icon_razz.gif

    I'm planning on donating my remains to medical science, but I always thought that

    "Game Over"

    would be a fitting epitaph.

    Years ago the Sunday supplement to the local paper ran an article on tombstone epitaphs. My favorite was the atheist's: "All dressed up and no place to go."

    I also want to be cremated. Why waste more precious land for a dead body?

    I will not be buried
    I will not be cremated
    I will ascend into heaven by a golden chariot with angels playing trumpets of my grand entrance into Heaven.

    But if I had a tombstone it would say

    "Here lies Saint Rad"
    (We all know I am going to become a Saint)


    But in all seriousness, my body will be harvested for my organs and then used for Science.

    Alight - I will play along for real.

    I will likely be cremated, too, but how do I want to be remembered...

    I would want the quote that represents how I've tried to live my life. From The Road Not Taken by Robert Frost:

    Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
    I took the one less traveled by,
    And that has made all the difference.

    I'd want something interactive like a dry erase board or one of those little clocks like they use on diner doors that says "Will be back at...."

    Lol. Best one so far.

    Don't intend to have a headstone. I'm donating my organs, then being buried at the foot of a Puie tree. But if I did have one it would read, "Loved but never liked.".
