New cemetery on the cards

By notdingers - 4 July 2008 18

This story from the ABC

“The ACT Government is considering a new cemetery for Canberra and is expected to make a decision within months.

…a fourth cemetery in Canberra’s south is being discussed as a possibility”

Maybe they could roll this project in with the search for the Data Center site.

What’s Your opinion?

I find the whole idea of burying a body quite wasteful. It has a lot of potential uses… and you certainly have no more use for it.

There is a general lack of cadavers in Australia for potential doctors to learn on, and there is certainly a scarcity of organs that can save life.

I have made sure that all of my family know that on my demise, everything that can be transplanted is saved and taken away. Although with my lifestyle, its probably only going to be my cornea that are useful.

What is left can go to a training university, a medical school, an instructional morgue or whatever. Even if it only shows them what a liver that has been abused looks like.

I’ll be dead… so I don’t care. And hopefully it will help someone else.

Funny enough I think you will find that the site for proposed new cemetery is actually fairly close to the proposed power station site, in the general vacinity of Hume. At least they will have room to bury all the whinging macarthur residents now lol

If I die in some abnormal way I want to be a guest of Dr Gunter – of the “Anatomy for Beginners” fame. I reckon a whole series titled “How did they die?” would be a ratings winner!

V twin venom said :

Ingee, if your roadside location is to be at Long Gully Road where the Data Centre is proposed, you will have plenty of competition for the attention of our local crows. As I ran the lusty V twin down there this morning enasive action was required to miss the carcass of a big roo that was left in the middle of road after meeting it’s end. Unfortunately I wasn’t lucky enough to miss a crow that was too involved with the eye pecking to hear me coming. The little f#ucker cost me a new windscreen and a new pair of undies.

LOL! (re the new pair of undies comment)

I thought that crows were smarter than that.

maybe the V-Twin was too quick…. Maybe that’s how I get rid of the ones in my area.

look, just get the ACT Govt to create a nowaste bin for tissue disposal. (with optional chainsaw and mop up towels….)

when I am dead, I won’t really care what happens to my corpse.

I thought people were dying to get out of Canberra?

Hanging corpses from the crossbars of the power poles along Canberra Ave should ready your for the emotional impact of seeing “You are now entering Queanbeyan”.

Hmm maybe we can start putting corpses up in the trees between Queanbeyan and Bungendore instead of stuffed toys…..

Corpse fired power plant ?

Pandy 8:27 am 04 Jul 08

Build it at MacArthur

Thumper 8:13 am 04 Jul 08

Like the dead knights in Boorman’s Excalibur.

Creep scene that one…

Ingeegoodbee 8:08 am 04 Jul 08

I don’t get the whole planting dead people thing. When I go I want to be left out on the side of a road somewhere so the crows can peck my eyes out.

Thumper 8:01 am 04 Jul 08

I’m dying to see this..

Sorry, I’ll crawl back under my rock now shall I…
