    “Interesting” Indeed! Beats all hell out of an urn on the shelf…or a hole in the ground. And who doesn’t like a good knife?

    Wasn’t there a PHONY Navy SEAL, featured here about 1 year ago,
    that churned businesses,
    and turned to some type of custom knife making
    AFTER being outed?

    Seattle has a company that will turn your loved ones into compost.

    “Recompose began its human composting operation in December 2020. Its services are located outside of Seattle in a space they are calling The Greenhouse, which is equipped with 10 steel cylinder vessels that each convert human remains. This is done by placing the deceased in a mixture of wood chips, alfalfa, and straw to form a cocoon. Microbes and beneficial bacteria in the mixture break down the body over the course of 30 days. When the process is complete, clean and usable soil is produced. It is given up to a month to dry and is then distributed to the family or donated to Bells Mountain, a 700-acre non-profit land trust in southern Washington.”

      What godless grassfucking hippie doesn’t want to be used for potting soil?

        Dunno about that, I like the idea of the whole dust to dust natural process. Green funeral, all biodegradable, plant a tree for a marker. An eternal “leave no trace” like the Boy Scouts taught me. Hell, I won’t be there anyway.
