I told my hubby to cremate me and mix me into a textured concrete vase to put flowers or plants in. Or if money is really tight, just leave me at the hospital and don't claim me. I won't know a thing lol.

When I was younger people referred to me as a little (rhymes with spit). If my ashes are eaten by animals, that past reference will be some amazing foreshadowing.

OK Caitlin I stumbled onto your videos last night, and have been binge watching ever since.. Love them!!. I have always told my children when I die I want to be Propped up by a tree in the woods and let the animals have me.. This might be a way to actually get this done... Thank You.

I absolutely LOVE the idea of giving my body back to the Earth. What better way to honor the idea of how precious we as humans perceive life to be, you are literally giving yourself to the aid of another life form time and time again
Michelle Simmons
I like the idea of becoming food for nature. My plans for my final remains fell apart so to speak. Having no family I wasn’t sure what to do besides saying, “Just put my remains on the curb for trash pick up.” This will give me something to think about. Thank you.

In Tibet, the monks process the corpses of their deceased brethren as vulture food, so as to return the body to the ecological life cycle. It is believed that this practice arose out of necessity: the mountainous regions didn't really allow for traditional burial or cremation. But technology and urban living has caused this act to become rarer. I'm gonna try and have my body cryogenically preserved for possible later revival in the distant future. Failing that, plasticization and display.

So, both the Goonies and Psycho are on the top of my favorite movies list. If you slow down that scene you showed from the Goonies, you can see the"dead" actor blink... seriously, tho... you should watch that movie. It's the best, most fun movie ever!!!

I have a small worm farm and part of what we feed the worms is grit. Because worms have a gizzard like birds do. They produce a wonderful compost that help plants grow beautifully. The calcium and potassium is also required by the worms to reproduce. I wonder if people would be interested in using the cremains as worm food then I would return their loved one a bag of vermi-compost they can use to feed their trees/garden? It would be a wonderful way to bring life from the lifeless.

Weekend at Bernies. After working as a CNA and I gotta say, Bernie would have evacuated at some point earlier in the movie and the thought of him sitting on a couch with some girl hitting on him is just... Well, even if he was alive it's hard to be the cool guy when you've crapped your pants.

Honestly I think the only thing I specifically asked for was Secret Porpoise. The rest are "Oh what am I going to see death-related today?" and end up with Caitlyn playing house music and shaking a flashlight at a bejeweled skull. I prefer it that way, because I would never think of asking for that.

There was this episode on "My Strange Addiction" where a woman was eating the cremated remains of her husband and this said this was a health risk. I'm wondering what the difference is, if there is one for animals vs. humans? Not that I'm wanting to do this (to eat or be eaten) but I'm curious because of that episode.

The body in stand by me has always struck a fear inside of me. I used to fear he would slide out from under my bed and be looking up at me. It will always scare me. Idk what it is, but that is the ONE movie corpse that will always get me. I can handle pretty much any other ones. Growing up going to my family's funeral home in Massachusetts, I've seen a corpse or two, but none have bothered me like stand by me

She's right about dead bodies not being "present" (well, of course she is, duh). I used to be an EMT and there's this...absence even in the recently dead. The eyes start to glaze over immediately after the heart stops and there's this sense, when you're doing CPR, of this sort of...hole in the chest. It's not a physical hole, but you can sense the absence. Also, bodies are weirdly, uh, ubiquitous. I compare them to piles of clothes because that's kinda how they appear until you notice them. You can literally trip over them.

It’s strange to me that cremated remains would be appetizing to animals. Seems like the burning process would make it taste like a way over cooked piece of meat? Idk. Can’t believe she tasted it, like finger in Mom’s cake batter mix.

Couple things, Caitlin. First, how in the heck did you not even mention the hand-made "curated" corpses they used in "Six Feet Under"? They were boss! The second season on DVD even had a doc on how they were made. They tried to address the issues you have about "Hollywood dead people". Second, God bless Charles Shultz, but if he regularly used different hairstyles on the Peanuts Gang, yours on Lucy would ROCK! Seriously...😁 Oh, BTW, sorry about running long, but in regards to your body "going back to nature" (which, in any way possible, I do too...🙃), Aren't there any legal "sky burial" areas in Tribal/First Nation reserves? Or even maybe Zoastrian (sp?) "Towers Of Silence" in the US? Pretty much fits your preferences either way, I think.

I think the strangest thing about a corpse is the absence of the person. My stepfather died at home of cancer. While waiting for the doctor to arrive to pronounce I waited with my mother, sister and the McMillan nurse, the shell of what had been my stepfather laid on the bed but he wasn’t there.

You've never seen the goonies??? What??? Also, what do you mean by eaten by animals? Like have your body taken to the zoo and thrown in with the lions, or like some kind of body farm in woodlands that has loads of animals? I'd never think about the legality of that. 😅 Oh, and for the animal feed blocks, if the person was embalmed and then cremated would it still be safe for animals?

I have not researched this at all but when my cat developed kidney stones at only 2 years old I was told by the vet that the ash from meat processing plants, which is routinely put in dry cat food as a filler, was the culprit. I changed her food and she never suffered again for the rest of her 18 years. If there is any truth in ash being the reason, could the addition of cremated remains into animal food be unhealthy for the animals eating it? In nature, is ash something animals would choose to eat?

My mother was buried in a green cemetery site in a bamboo casket. We walked up the hill there when it had just opened and choses a plot, sheep were grazing there. There was also evidence of rabbits and moles. My mum loved it there and would walk up to enjoy the view. My brother's ashes are buried with her. My husband and I have bought the adjacent plots and paid for trees to be planted over the graves. I will have a silver birch, my mum has an ornamental cherry (that is doing really well)and my husband has chosen a hornbeam. My sister in law bought a bench and whenever we go there we can sit and know that we will all be together.
