One Final Act Of Stupidity
Posted by bmac on April 20, 2008
Environmentally conscious baby boomers are driving the growing popularity of “green” burials.
Dry ice or refrigeration replaces formaldehyde, or a wood casket replaces a concrete vault in green burials.
Why don’t you just recycle the body and eat it? Use the bones to build a habitat for hobos. I mean, it don’t get more “green” than that. If you’re that committed to being an idiot, take it all the way. Don’t even sully the precious Earth with the insulting presence of your wasteful, decomposing body.
Green burials require separate cemetery space away from areas where heavy equipment is used.
The graves are usually hand-dug around trees, and simple stones mark the grave sites.
That’s nice, you get to hug a tree for eternity.
I watched a show last week on National Geographic about all the stuff we use in our lifetime, I think it was called “Human Footprint.” Aside from the fact that it was a two hour Anti-American screed about how wasteful Americans are, it was still interesting, and puts into perspective how retarded something like a “green burial” is. As if, after all you consume, and all the waste you create during your lifetime, (a staggering amount, even for greenies) a fucking bio-degradable casket is gonna make it all better.
Idiocracy baby, Idiocracy.
