And just in time for Christmas. Imagine looking into your stocking to find your own semi-eternally preserved head. Or would you be looking out from your stocking? Hmm. Anyway, it is the perfect gift.

I think I'm going to write it into my will that they have to keep my ashes in an urn shaped like my head. So I can creep everyone out from the grave.

Don't die in Germany, here getting buried is legally required.

Oh man I want to make a joke but it is in terrible taste and incredibly inappropriate so I'll just spoiler tag it.

I poked around out of curiosity. Apparently you can be cremated in Germany, but then the ashes have to be buried. No sitting on someone's mantle or being scattered to the wind.

Yeah, that's what I meant. Cremation is legal, but the urn has to go into the ground, then.

I don't know why the state thinks it can rule what we do with our bodies after death. Only recently burials following Muslim traditions (in a cloth) have been allowed and only on some cemeteries.

My dad is actually a big proponent of "green burials" here in the US where there's no embalming or anything and you get buried in a nice biodegradable container* in a non-standard graveyard.** He's gotten one of the nature preserves he manages approved for green burials and they'll be starting in the next couple years. I'm really excited myself about them taking off, because how horribly unnatural are burials now? Visiting a passed loved one now, you're surrounding yourself with hundreds or thousands of reminders of death, whereas in a green burial location in the woods, you're surrounding yourself with life, and seeing your loved one transformed around you into something beautiful.***

Continual disappointment is the spice of life.

So if I remember right, my state had a rule that a licensed funeral home / undertaker had to conduct an burial or cremation within 3 days if the body was not embalmed. But there was a bit of a loophole. A regular citizen had no legal obligation to report a corpse if there was no criminal implication and no health risk to the public. That was until a woman that had died of natural causes was found six months or so after death in a family's chest freezer because they couldn't afford burial and the state realized they couldn't press charges. Law can get weird. I don't know if the law actually got changed to close the loophole.

Burial in a designated "Friedwald" ("peace forest") is now also allowed in Germany. But only urns can be buried there.
