  • "Death By Stupidity"

    Back

       In some foreign country a priest, a lawyer and an engineer are about to be guillotined.
       The priest puts his head on the block, they pull the rope and nothing happens -- he declares that he's been saved by divine intervention-- so he's let go .
       The lawyer is put on the block, and again the rope doesn't release the blade, he claims he can't be executed twice for the same crime and he is set free too.
       They grab the engineer and shove his head into the guillotine, he looks up at the release mechanism and says, "Wait a minute, I see your problem...."

    Attitudes are changing about the subject of death and funerals #1.

    In 1960 only 3% of people dying in the United States were cremated. In 2011 42.2 % chose cremation. This is expected to grow to over 50% by 2017. People are coming to understand that after death our body immediately begins to go back to what it is; natural organic elements. After decomposition begins, it completely takes over the body. Cremation just speeds up the process. In the 1960’s the Catholic Church officially allowed cremation. Protestant preachers and progressive Jewish Rabbis allow cremation.

    Instead of visiting a cemetery hundreds of miles from those left behind, cremains can be can be placed in reefs in the ocean floor where they become part of the ecology. Cremains can be exploded, used in art work, stored inside jewelry, unloaded from shotgun shells, pressed into vinyl records, kept in elaborate customized urns, placed in wind chimes, military merchandise, and can be kept anywhere in anything.

    It is also important to note that traditional funerals average $7,500; while cremation averages $2,570
