A Scottish company has refined–revived, if we want to be sarcastic–an old method for disposing of corpses: dissolving them in caustic solution. Why? They claim that this method of disposing of the deceased has a smaller carbon footprint than the infernal flames of cremation. It’s a claim that is hard to believe and even more difficult to digest or to undertake, as it were.
Once the corpse has been liquified, what will they do with it? Flush it down the toilet? Feed it to plants? The former would be a desirable means for survivors who hate you to exact a form of revenge. The latter actually sounds like fun. I wouldn’t mind becoming fertilizer in death. It might be my only act of creating life.
