Default Human compost

The precursor to Soylent Green ?!?!
Wonder what the average square foot coverage would be?

Give me cremation, I don't want to end up all squishy and liquidy in some industrial soup pot

I don’t know what the big deal is? The Mafia has been doing it for years.

Funny thing about "your" body once you die...there are no laws enforcing how your executors can dispose of your body, regardless of what you may state in your will or last declaration. You only have legal control of your body until you die,after that it's up to someone else to decide.
Your corpse has no more legal rights than does unclaimed luggage.y
Merry Christmas!

This is why it is important to have trusting “loved-ones” in your life! Or, I guess you could just not care at all.

Works for me although, I'm sure most people would be a bit squeamish to use people dirt in their yard or, as Garrett mentioned, their garden. Kinda gives a whole new meaning to Granny Smith apples.

After I die, I don't give a shit.

Even the organic growers will not use Dillo Dirt from sewage sludge.

This poop rhymes with using lawyers for science testing because there are some things a rat just won’t do.

Which Federal agency will do the health monitoring for this?

Wonder if their dna follows them?
Could you ID who is growing your tomatoes?
What will be the largest bone found in the compost?
Will ingredients be ground foot or head first?
Will their be follow up testing to determine Who grows What the best?
Could you be sued for discrimination by choosing one pile of “compost” over another?
How can you prove who is Not buried in your yard?
Could you lose your property through “adverse possession” because they have been there and had access for years?
Could their relatives come to visit every Sunday?

Sounds risky to me; Putrid too!

The part I didn't get is that it's illegal to use human waste , chit, urine, as any kind of fertilizer, but you can use entire human bodies?!?!?!? What do they do, flush out all the "bad" stuff first ?!?!

As I tell people.
When I die, I want to be buried in the ground. No excuses.
I've seen enough zombies movies that I know, if that shit goes down, I am so in on it.

I’d probably not buy a “head” of lettuce anytime soon

Don't see any problems with any of these choices. Ashes to ashes, dust to dust. It matters not how we get there!

All you folks that have loved ones cremated and returned to the earth via oceans, rivers, lakes, under a special tree or sanctuary are doing the exact same thing.

Anyone who's buried a dog in the yard, same thing.
Just my thoughts!
