It's all about the STORY!

Not into burials and cremation isn’t “green” enough–get liquified (and have your liquified remains drained in the municipal water supply!)

This one is hard to believe, but not only has the BBC reported on it, the story is featuring a St. Petersburg, Florida iconic funeral home: Anderson McQueen. It’s local folks. Here’s a quote:

 “Body tissue is dissolved and the liquid poured into the municipal water system. Mr Sullivan, a biochemist by training, says tests have proven the effluent is sterile and contains no DNA, and poses no environmental risk.”

My personal perspective on this one: intellectually, I’m quite certain that this method is greener than cremation and perfectly safe for the environment. However, I’m a big fan of horor/sci-fi movies like “Night of the Living Dead,” “Resident Evil” and “Soylent Green.” So, I’m just suggesting that, well, this is how these things get started.
