This previously baked idea has had an improvement
added so I don't have to take it down.
First, get a couple of hundred million dollars that you
to blow on a funeral.
Then hire SpaceEx or the Russians to blast your body into
low Earth orbit.
Make sure everybody is situated and
watching the right
area of the sky when you make re-entry because after
spending 200 million or so on this stunt you don't want
aunti Beatrice looking down at the hors doeuvres tray
complaining about the petit fours.
Then slam into the atmosphere at 15,000 mph and
gloriously explode into a streaking flash of carbon
sulfur compounds, nitrogen, lead, boron, cadmium,
chromium, cobalt, copper, tin, lithium, magnesium,
manganese, nicket and strontium.
Your loved ones will be moved to tears while the rest of
the world will be disgusted that you just burned not just
your earthly remains, but several hundred million dollars
that could have been used to build environmentally
homeless puppy shelters.
Here's the improvement: You also have a couple of
hundred million dollars in gold burn up with you as you

||In some future time a consortium of descendents of the cryogenically frozen could pool resources to dispose of their ancestors in a single magnificent meteor shower.
||Not that much different from previous efforts to launch small portions of persons cremains into satellite orbit, only to have delivery fail. Well, perhaps the making sure people are watching part...

||// environmentally clean homeless puppy shelters //
||Is it the puppies that are environmentally clean, or the shelters ?
||Our understanding is that there is very little that's clean about puppies.

||Cheerfully withdrawn. (I'll leave it up for a bit to
explain why it's taken down.)
||Eh, changed my mind. I like the bit about pissing
people who want environmentally friendly puppy
shelters so I added a twist to skirt the Halfbakery
||By the way, the Halfbakery spell checker doesn't
recognize the word "Halfbakery".
||Of course not. Look in the help file under "recursion".
