What will be on your tombstone?
« on: 02 Dec 2010, 22:53 »

I've already decided. Mine will have a beer tap built into it, and the headstone will say "Have one on me".

Hey, it's better than pepperoni and sausage.

I plan on being scattered off a particular spit into the ocean that's meaningful to me.  No stone, axcept the ones that make up the spit. 

My wife, on the other hand, wants the classic;

"I told  you I was sick!!"

Seriously, we've written it into her will. 

Of course, now she'll die in an accident or of old age...

I want a green burial. Wrapped in a linen shroud, dumped into a hole in the ground not walled with concrete, and with a tree planted to mark the grave. My body will degrade into the soil, the tree with absorb the nutrients my rotting corpse provides, and so I will become immortal via tree!

Well, that's one thing I might want on my tombstone for my remains.  But I don't plan to be buried in one piece.  Ideally this will be because I died in an awesome explosion, possibly defeating a supervillian in the process.  Or maybe a superhero if my life goes that way.

But assuming that I'm more or less in one piece when I die, I'm getting harvested before they plant what's left.  Gonna share out my bits, I am.

Hmm...

Oh god, tombstones in the future are going to be trolling the mourners, aren't they?

Anyway, I've always thought this Edgar Allan Poe poem would be lovely to have on a tombstone:
"I heed not that my earthly lot
Hath little of earth in it,
That years of love have been forgot
In the hatred of a minute.
I mourn not that the desolate
Are happier, sweet, than I
But that you sorrow for my fate
Who am a passer-by."

That's from memory so it might not be exactly right...and it's a little long, but eh.

The image quotes didn't work, I think the BB code won't allow the underscore characters.  I've changed them to links, since they are SOOO cool.

I can see them now, too, since I visited the sites.  I dunno, maybe I'm wrong, but they were just the little no-image "X" blocks when I first saw the post. 

Probably has more to do with IE than BB code.

Oh yeah, the Romans loved that shit too; our Latin teachers were always on about how the Romans had various shorthand forms for curses and pleas to the gods for their tombs. Really confused some early archaeologists, apparently, because it just looks like a random string of letters if you don't know what it means already.
