An Urn or a Gravestone?
So I am torn. Do I want to leave this kind of solid evidence of myself for future archaeologists? Or do I take the more ecologically benign route of cremation and scattered ashes?

I'm going for the burial myself. I've thought about doing something really weird, like having myself buried with a bowling ball next to my head and a chicken on either side. I could go to my grave knowing that at some point a future colleague will furrow their brow and say "Must have some ritual significance."
