Uno could probably make you deader...
https://www.atlasobscura.com/articles/picnic-in-cemeteries-america?utm_source=facebook.com&utm_medium=atlas-pageI remember taking picnics with grandma in the graveyard, and not just around memorial day. Just because. Picnics, tombstone rubbings, reading under the tree...They were 'normal' activities to me as much as any park. I didn't realize it's just how she was raised and was just something normal to her as well. As such, I've never really understood wider societies 'rules' and etiquette. Kind of a sad thing to lose, really. Anyone else ever practice this?
Sure does. But I'll be dead and won't have any descendants, so what do I care if my money is mishandled?
Because they'll stop paying the power bill?
But then, I have a whole slew of things I'd like done with my remains, and none of them involve a solemn gathering just before dumping them in a hole. But that's exactly what will happen. I just have really weird relations with death.

But that's exactly what will happen. I just have really weird relations with death. Can't say I get this. To me, death is... the point at which a living thing stops doing living-ish stuff and we don't think we have any ability to make it start doing living-ish stuff again. It sucks. But it's just this dumb thing that happens because we live in a sloppy, hectic universe.I've never understood revering death or anthropomorphizing it or believing it's what gives life value or anything like that.
Right. What I'm saying is I don't understand why that's important to you (or why death rituals generally are important for anyone other than those who are grieving). If it's not what your relatives would want, and you will never get anything out of it (because you're dead), why does it matter? After all, you'll be eaten no matter where you end up.
And, no, you don't get eaten in todays coffin/cemetery dealios. Embalmed, stuffed inside a hermetically sealed box, shoved into a concrete tomb that's below where the critters can get to you. Too wet to mummify, you just kind of slowly turn to a fossil.
