is overrated
They going to run them through a maceration device before spreading them about?

What about embalming them, is the formaldehyde biodegradable?

I read a story about a place around here that does that for horses. When Ol' Paint drops dead, they'll come get it, compost it and bring it back to you. They were doing pretty well at it, too.


Doing it with people seems a bit ignoble. And two weeks seems an awful short time for a skeleton to rot away.

I think the story left out the part about running Uncle Henry through the same tub grinder they get their wood chips from.

A fire ant nest would probably pick you clean in a week. Or less.

So it sounds like the old Mob had it right all along. Except they'd compost you before you wanted to go...

Anyway, I heard of this "tree pod" thing a couple of years ago and thought that I'd like to be buried this way. Might as well be put to good use.

I'm not sure it'll work on me.

I'm so toxic the vultures stay away.

The process doesn't use formaldehyde

See, I know that because I read the article
It was too long to read and really I didn't need to hear about what crazy shit some in the NW decided to do with their dead.
