30. May I be the first to say it - this kinda grosses me out. Sure put me in the ground and let me

rot and crawl with maggots - in fact, I intend to pre-arrange my own "green" burial (which is cheap and involves no embalming and you get put into the ground in a nature preserve in a plain cardboard box). But this is not that. This is your body put in a"vessel" and then they do stuff to it - not sure what cos article doesnt say. Bones for instance - naturally those would take many decades if not longer to decompose naturally. So how are they going to "speed up" the decomposition of those? Do you get ground up like hamburger? Or dissolved in chemicals like in that one infamous episode of "Breaking Bad".

In short - ewwwww.

I wouldnt mind being put in a tree and eaten by vultures (a native american way) or dumped overboard at sea, but I just dont want people doing stuff to me/my body. I wont have any use for my body of course, but its served me well and I do have a certain fondness for it.
