If you're going to have an internet connection in your coffin, there should really be somewhere for you to go. This idea stems from the "Be buried with your mobile" and "Internet Connection for Coffins" ideas.

"You could provide a full range of e-services to meet everyone's coffin occupancy needs. There could be a "who's waiting to be dug up right now?" section, suggestions for exercises which can be done in confined spaces. Stuff like that."
Skinny Rob

"..and you could hook up a webcam (and light) in the coffin for suspected vampires and werewolves, and slasher movie killers, to make sure they're still dead."

"Rather than a full-blown Internet connection, coffins could just be installed with small, cheap webcams. Then digmeup.com would be a site where hundreds of thousands of webcam images could be viewed. Obviously 99.9999% of these would show corpses, but there might be the occasional picture of someone looking rather panicky. It would be "compulsive browsing" too - you wouldn't want to stop looking through the images for fear that the next one might be someone relying on you to notice that they're alive. The whole thing would of course pay for itself with banner ads."

       Very popular with the Goths I imagine, kind of a slow motion screensaver.

       jutta: I love the virtual flowers idea, it's beautiful - which is why I think it should really be kept separate from this site, which is a bit on the gruesome side.

       There are some deeply strange people on this site... as for me, I think I'll make sure I'm burried with a JCB earthmover...

       PeterSealy: The problem was that the annotations above which were originally posted in the "be buried with your mobile" idea really belong to this thread, and the cut-and-paste method gives due credit to the people who made the annotations.

       This reminds me of "day of the dead" down in Mexico. The idea is you get foods and other things your dead loved one enjoyed and spend the day remembering them. It could really help the grieving process if you could fire off an email to a dead loved one and get "Sorry I'm not checking my email now because I'm dead, but see you in the afterlife! I miss you!"

       We need a secret invitation-only halfbakery, and to just run this one as a decoy (but the only new year resolution i've kept is to not post any halfbakery-category ideas). Wait, maybe that's where futurebird's gone, and AfroAssault, and egnor, and where waugs sloped off to for a while! Don't leave me all.
