    To be honest, that pic was a bit of a shock for me as well. I had never seen an "osteofylakio" before.

    No,it is NOT,only debating,nothing final.They say from time to time *the first crematorium to open *and nothing happens.I am very interested on the subject,believe me.Church is VERY strong here,politicians wouldnt dare to take money out of the priests,s pockets..

    But the priests still get paid when a person is cremated. They still conduct the service.

    Yes,but this is an one off,a service and bye bye.They keep dead ones for about 6 years,you pay rent for the grave and the place for the bones,you pay priests for regular services,you buy flowers and light candles and you might pay to keep the grave clean.(i didnt ,i kept my mom,s clean and fresh flowers on,my girls wanted to visit very often.)
    It really is a huge industry.

    you could pioneer cremation with some sort of 'sluce's secret underground fast ashes to ashes services', disguised as a mongolian barbeque restaurant.

    I'm guessing her passing was due to something heart issue or vitamin/chemical imbalance due to an eating disorder. Eating disorders have the highest mortality rate of mental disorders. Preliminary reports showed no drugs. Final inquest with results will be later on this week. If that is the case, I hope it sends a message to other people out there with an eating disorder. When you're in the grips of one you just don't realize the consequences.

    Even grosser: when Tsar Alexander III died his body was moved around Russia for several WEEKS for various open casket services. His family had to attend and kiss his rapidly putrifying corpse during the lengthy proceedings. Ugh.

    Part of ourselves flake off everyday anyway, not as badly a corpse of course, but we are living, shedding regenerating etc., all the time.....the only difference with death is ..no regeneration...
