How do you like your body taken care of after you die? Do you like to be buried, cremated, or do you want to become a compost? No, the last one's not a joke. Not sure if many people are aware of this but the state of Washington passed a bill in April 2019 that would allow that.

Sort:  

I would say either buried or cremated. But it sure is a weird question to answer.

Yeah, it's really weird if not morbid.

Last time I died I opted for being freeze dried and crushed into a fine powder. Maybe try cremation next time.

Lmao! What do you plan on trying next after you tried cremation?

Idk, maybe be shot into the atmosphere to create some star dust ✨

The bill is called RCW 68.04.310 "Natural organic reduction." The way the process was done was to put the body inside a temperature control vessel along with some straws, woodchips, and gases. Once the process was over, relatives could take the soil home and use for gardening...

Thanks for bringing up the bill. It allows me to skip looking it up.

I honestly do not think I would want my relatives to use me as as fertilizer.

Lol, same for me. Although if you think about practicality, the law actually make sense.

I guess it would make sense but I just don't exactly like the thought of it. A humans body has a bunch of nutriets but I don't know if you want covid in your fertilizer (though it would probably be dead).

Yeah, I don't like the thought as well. And yes, the covid virus should not be able to survive for too long inside a dead person's body so it should be dead by the time the body degraded into compost.
