Since Kim started this thread with the question:
"What If Someone Could Invent or start a..."
Someone needs to start a taxidermy service for humans. We stuff deer, fish, cougars, mountain lions, elk, deer - you name. Why not gandma?
Roy Rogers stuffed Trigger and Bullet.
There`s probably a lot of folks out there that would love to stuff grandma or grandpa and sit `em up in their favorite rocking chair or recliner by the fireplace and be able to drop by and say hello every now and again. Great crime prevention tactic.
Think of all the cemetary space we would save (they are already double stacking in some places). Would be great for the HOV lanes on the highway, too. Blowup doll? No. Just use your stuffed relative - looks real enough to fool the cops.
I wonder if there is a law against this?
My father once told me about a small country store in Mississippi that had a person on the front porch. An old gentleman sits snoozing in a rocking chair and silently greets customers never saying a word. As the story is told, he died in that chair and was found years later in remarkable shape dried like a raisn in the sun. Sounds like a great story to tell the kids but I`m sure that it`s just a story.
On the other hand I do know that Sweden has started freeze drying people, dipping them into liquid nitrogen and then shattering the pieces into powder to turn them into fertelizer which you can legally add to your garden and really will make your flowers grow. Every spring you can look at your azalea bush flowering and say "hi grandma!"
The thing about what they are doing though is that if you don`t dip the remains in nitrogen, you have a perfectly presereved body in any position that you want that will last for a really long time. It`s completely legal to do it with your pets. Don`t forget plastinization. Everybody thinks that there are laws against these things (and there are burial laws) but with the proper legal documentation showing consent, people can do just about anything with human remains. Pretty creepy stuff. Look at what medical institutions do in the name of science.
