    Yep when you apply for your license or renew just tick the little box for organ donor. At least that's how it works in my state. It is practical and unrelated but kinda cool, there's a tiny heart just below the pic of my face!:thumbsup:

    That's interesting, I didn't know that.
    In Germany it's just a seperate card you can fill out and put in your purse.
    The advantage of that is that you don't have to register anywhere, so it's less "definite" and if you change your mind for whatever reason you just have to throw the card away.
    The disadvantage is that it's one more card in your purse (it's not like there wouldn't be enough already lol) and that if you don't have it with you when you die nobody will know.

    Some of my organs can be donated, if they are of any use and what remains of me can be cremated and scattered in the hills.

    Same. Having it donated to science doesn't sound like a bad idea either.

    I don't care cause I'm dead anyway. I just hope my organs are donated to those who need them.

    I wanna be cryogenically frozen when I die so I can get brought back to life in the future.

    Edit: Actually if the future isn't better than now I don't wanna. But it probably will be.

    I'm not a fan of traditional funerals, just dispose of the corpse in a way that won't destroy the environment.

    I won't be there to care, so whatever is practical/useful

    I want to be cremated and have my ashes spread on top of my favorite ski mountain. Then in the spring thaw I'll run down into the retaining pond at the bottom, be turned into snow the following winter, and the cycle will continue forever and ever.

    I want my organs to be donated if possible but for my body (somehow) to be buried under a tree/sapling of some sort so I can live on in nature that way. If that makes sense.

    Cremation for me. I don't like the idea of decomposing and being eaten by creepy stuff.

    Much the same. I'd like for my organs to be donated and the rest of me to be cremated or used to grow trees.

    Rotting corpse in a coffin does not sound very nice... Let alone with the whole open-casket funeral procession which is common where I'm from.

    Carve me up & re-use whatever you can, I won't be needing it.

    Donate any usable organs, then cremate the rest....no horrible embalming chemicals leaching into the environment ( yeah, I know cremation isn't exactly green either)

    After my organs are given to those in need if possible burn me and plant with me a tree or something of that nature. That way it benefits the world as much as possible.

    Tree cemeteries would be a awesome idea if you ask me. Not to be insensitive but it would solve the "wasted' space cemeteries kinda are. Having protected lands full of trees of the dead would be beneficial for all.

    I'm happily joining the crowd of people who'd want to be cremated with any usable organs taken from me. I kinda hope for this reason that I won't die in an explosion so that there's still something useful left. But yeah, I don't want to rot in a coffin, let's get the flames out and get it over with!
