    I am of two minds of this...

    1. Yay, good for not following bronze age fairytales

    2. I am not a fan of the mysticism of death and human divinity or specialness. She died, she's dead, why should anyone give too much of a sh)t what happens to their body after they die? Why is that even a relevant thing when the choice is to be buried or burned? I could see maybe if they were going to stuff her and sell her to some japanese weirdo starting a new game-show, sure to be a hit......but it seems sort of bleh.

    There is a large problem with organ donors where i am from, and this sort of reinforces that idea, that the body is some sacred thing or whatever bullshit that won't allow us to easily pass a law that requires people to have to opt out, rather than have to opt in to the program.

    This isn't ancient egypt or scythia or denmark, we don't need to be burying people with their treasures, nor do we need to see their remains as some sort of's a bunch of meat that isn't being used.

    But yeah, i guess that's not the point.....for sure fuck her family and her community.

    She's already dead. Right?
