Incidentally, why isn't "spacecraft" another word for "interior design"?

Water slides! Rollercoasters! Come visit the family and have a jolly time! Ride the Rides! See the Sights! Visit grandma in a fun new environment. No more forced family car rides. Celebrate with the deceased in the new hologramatic disco. Dance with dead friends and old relatives! Keep the memories alive! Come witness the famous parade of the dead. Where in once a year the bodies are exhumed and marched around the grounds. Tired of those old boring funerals? Well no longer! Come one come all! Free for the whole family! (void where prohibited, parks and rides may vary.)

Mexican "Day of the Dead" http://www.public.i...scmfaq/muertos.html
Not exactly as lazloquezos describes, but in the right spirit (so to speak). [DrBob, Oct 15 2002, last modified Oct 21 2004]

       I have often thought about having a tombstone with a slide ontop of it, its either that or a interactive tombstone (link) or a tombstone with a giant skeleton with batwings weilding a double headed battle ax in one hand and a sword in the other, or a combination of all 3.

       Are you a left over inca or something? This is a seriously morbid idea.

       I like this one +. I think it encourages a better psychological viewpoint. Not sure about re-animating the corpses, though - losing the boredom and depression is good, but not the respect.

       psss [yami] you forgot the +.

       psss [bliss] maybe the - after "though" cancelled it out.

       From the title, I came charging in here to deliver a croissant. After reading, I ate it. Here's some bones to bury.

       Generally the intent of a funeral and graveyard is to comfort the living. I can see people, who want to go and speak to, or remember at, their "loved ones" graves, being quite offended.
As for the hologram idea, that was the basis of a Zelazny short story.

       The living might be offended but I don't think the dead would mind. I think they would quite enjoy a little jig every now and then.

       If anybody ever *swears* to "dance on your grave"... get buried at sea... and have the last laugh
