    I posted about turning a loved one's ashes (or anyone you want to dig up and burn, really) into a diamond back in 2009, so this isn't really a new concept. But death diamonds can cost up to $20K, where as dead body beads will only set you back $870, making them the obvious cho... / Continue →

    "...he was here a minute ago." When you go how do you want your body finished off? I used to want to be shot out of a cannon but now I'm thinking I wanna be fed to sharks to kick off Shark Week one year. Pretty cool, right? "Whatever, just as long as you're dead." Damn y... / Continue →

    Let's not kid ourselves: any urn without a really badass looking dragon on top is creepy. And an urn that looks like your ugly mug is just about as creepy as they come. Obviously, the only thing worse would be genitalia-shaped urns, which I can't believe I just wrote. I bet ... / Continue →
