I'd go with having my organs donated (although they'll probably be in shit condition the way I'll die) then cremation. Cremation saves room, compcts you back onto you original elements, and last, and most important, there will be no reanimation of my body for use in a super army of the undead.

Definitely the most important consideration for me.

Cremation. I wan't people to have a party when I die, not sit around looking at a coffin. Then I want to be taken to someplace beautiful and have my ashes scattered.

I don't really like either idea so naturally I'll side with "I don't care what happens to my body."

but I agree with Peaceblossom, I'd like a celebration when I go

Donate then cremation. My body is just a body, there's no reason I should make my family pay for upkeep of a grave site. Besides decomposing is pretty sick

Cremation is much cheaper than a burial, that is why so many are chosing to go that way.

Burial...but cremation is looking better and better to me. Who wants to have their body underground with dirt and bugs for eternity? Ugh.
