33. It's my wish to have a sky burial, and I regret that I can't have one in the US.

Cemeteries are a pointless vanity. Your body is stuffed in an air-tight, overly expensive shoebox so that anaerobic bacteria can munch on you until you turn into bones and a long-lasting sludge. Itís so wasteful!

I want to feed animals, so that my death could have meaning. I donít want my body to be a useless, rotting piece of meat. I donít want a headstone that developers 200 years from now will bulldoze for a parking lot.

I want my elements to be eaten by living things - at that point in time, they would be alive, and I would have already left the party, so to speak. In that way, my energy would become theirs. My molecules will help keep their bodies alive. Itís the circle of life.

Death sucks, but Iíd like something good to come from it. I want there to be some happiness I died - a free meal!

I know itís a gross subject, but Iím sad that Iíll probably be like most people - incinerated in an oven. Too bad.
