    I think the correct phrase is "I am dead, I can't care what happens to be body".

    As they said, funerals are for the living, not for the dead.

    .....................get cryogenically frozen.

    Currently the technology is not up to much as cells get killed by freezing process. But in 50-60 years time there could be hope.

    i've always said that before i die (hoping that a)it is expected and b) i have the physical streangth to do it)i want to go out in a forest, dig a hole, lay down, and die. the thought of getting pumped full of chemicals and waiting in a coffin for years before being "recycled" back into nature isn't for me. but as said before, at that point i really won't care how i die.
