    Car free funeral procession

    Ok, not really but after my Halloween bike project, I've found that this thing is actually a pretty handy storage compartment

    An ideal solution for touring, too! Especially for velovampires.

    Very nice! I would imagine though, that if someone were as serious about keeping their carbon footprint to a minimum as to suggest they be taken to the final resting place on a Big Dummy, chances are they would just opt for the more environmentally friendly cremation.

    Plenty of room for trick-or-treat candy.

    ^^ they use liquid nitrogen in the process. Takes a lot of energy to manufacture, transport and store. Not exactly environmentally friendly either.
    To err is human. To moo is bovine.

    Who is this General Failure anyway, and why is he reading my drive?

    I did enjoy all the responses

    To this I would agree except, what happens if you don't die next to a fireplace??

    Good point, but probably emits less carbon than burning a human corpse. A better way would be to bury people in shallow graves without coffins.
