    I think it would be awesome to have all my worldly goods burnt along with my body (No virgins required, Ill be one when I die)  It might suck for all my relatives, or it might keep them warm - depends on the time of year.   If I couldn't have a viking funeral then I'd...

    Like A Viking!

    It kind of grosses me out to think of what will happen to my body after I die. Like being buried. Everything I worked for rots. My eyes will go gooey, myskin all black and wrinkly and disgusting. If I'm cremated then its like one big barbeque. I know nobody can avoid this and I...
