Death Wishes - Transience Divine

That's interesting - I never thought about the whole password thing. It's weird to think that after you die, your LiveJournal will still be floating around. (You = universal "you")
Also, the idea of being cremated terrifies me. Though it seems to be a popular option for many people. What's the appeal of it for you?

Two appeals, neither having to do with the process of being cremated. First, the alternative has me smelling up some spot in a cemetery for a hundred years at added cost to my relatives (or whoever). It seems like an imposition on the living to try to give such royal treatment to a ball of dead flesh. What's left behind after I die doesn't mean much to me. But if there such a thing as a soul, and if it is attached to this fugly container of mine, then it's sort of a final spiritual journey to have my ashes scattered. I feel like my whole life is a kind of waiting-for-death, when I finally get to be one with the universe (maybe), and cremation and scattering is a way to kick me out the door.
