    I guess if it's good enough for Twinkle the goldfish, it's good enough for Grandma.

    Eh... dead is dead. It wouldn't bother me any more than being cremated would. And it probably beats being sealed in a box six feet down, instead of blending back into the Earth.

    We scattered my parents' ashes in the desert because they asked us to. But I seriously doubt they'd have noticed, had we done something else instead.

    It's a decent idea that doesn't waste land.

    I could imagine some more "romantic" approaches, sure.
    But who cares which way the world gets rid of the old leather sack..........

    Though.....
    twelve Virgins peeing over the railing while my ashes are transferred to the turquoise open ocean at sunset....

    ...well, but then I am in the black water disposal as well.

    Just thoughts, no severe diseases Mates.

    When they start culling the "herd" it will be an excellent way to make the victims just disappear.
