    My biggest fear is that somebody buries me in a $3000 casket. Here I am riding entry level bikes while I am alive and then somebody shells out $3,000, sticks me in the damned box and buries me in the ground. That would suck! Maybe i otta buy a better bike and request an entry level casket.

    There this one otta do it.

    Ranger, I can hear your friends now: "Ol' Ranger was so cheap, he didn't even have handles on his casket for the pallbearers!"

    I'm with you, Ranger. I didn't work and save all these years to make the undertaker rich.

    Plan your "disposal" ahead of time.

    I want to be cremated, and put into a peanut butter jar.

    Then, with what's left over, my friends and family can have a heck of a party in my memory.

    Exactly.


    How much to have my bike cremated with me? Or will they be using the Jaws of Life to pry it away?

    My wife says that my grave will be the only one at the cemetary with a bike chained to the headstone. She wants to put a big chrome bell on the handlebars for people to ring, as they walk by.
    That's gonna leave a mark.

    It'd be really cool if your headstone had some sort of motion sensor that detected when visitors were leaving. Then it could be set to say "Passing on your Left!" or "Keep it in the big ring!"

    Sounds possible but in order for that to happen, i need to get busy makin' a couple friends. I don't think the handles will be a problem, i'll just have them use a bob trailer and they can drag my ass around.

    I once asked my wife if she would put my ashes into the tire of my bike wheel, then mount it on the wall. You could still go for a spin wth me if you wanted.

    There are a couple of companies that will mix your ashes with a special concrete, and make an artificial reef out of you.

    As I diver, I like this idea a lot. Problem is, the only companies that do this drop you off the coast of Florida.

    Now I have nothing against Florida, but I was born in So Cal, educated in So Cal, lived in So Cal, and darnit, I want to be planted in So Cal!

    Damn straight. I figure I want to be cremated, and have my ashes scattered some place. I don't particularly care where, but I just don't want to sit on someone's mantlepiece for years. My will contains explicit instructions for my funeral. It's to be no longer than 15-20 minutes, and I want a good bottle of single malt Scotch passed around (no blends, please).

    I had a college professor who said he wanted to be cremated and have his ashes put into an hourglass so that, even after he was gone, he could keep on working.

    All I ask for at my funeral is LOTS OF FLOWERS. I have a great love for flowers. I'll probably be cremated to save money so that people can go have fun with.
    I'll be riding my bike in the heavens with the sun shining, no rain, no wind, just perfect weather. YIPPIE!!!!!!

    there's also a company that will incinerate you & make diamonds out of the leftover carbon.

    personally, I'd like to be shot into space. or cremated. or both.

    The funeral director on the A&E show, "Family Plots" had earrings and a ring made from his sons ashes. It's a really expensive process but a very cool idea.

    I like Lee Hays' (of the Weavers) idea. He wanted to be cremated then have his ashes spread on the compost heap. The compost would then be spread on the garden; the vegetables would grow and Lee's friends would eat them. The next day when they took a dump and flushed they could comment, "Well, there goes old Lee again."

    Better yet, get a mold of one side of you riding your bike. Then get buried with you on said bike, with full cycling garb, cleated in.

    Of course there has to be a tape deck playing the sound of a cheering crowd

    My dad was digging a 2 foot by 2 foot by 10 foot cubicle for their new grapes. While he was doing that my mother asked him if perhaps he should make it bigger. And he's like Oh are we burrying the whitevan (a large step/bread van that my parents used during their construction days, which gets alot of griping because its old, unused and rusty and falling apart) . Anyways, my dad said that would be a good idea. Make the hold deep enough so that the white van could be parked in thge hold and everything above the hood would be above ground and he would be buried sitting holding the steering wheel.

    That was very funny to us, though might not make alot of sense to those who are not familiar with all of the history and jokes surrounding it
