Answer for question 4324.

Are you a designated organ donor? Why or why not?
Absolutely! I won't have any use for the silly bits of flesh when I've biffed off so may as well let someone else deal with them.

I just renewed my license and it's on the front. My family also knows my intention - which is even MORE important because no matter what it says on your license, if your family says no, it won't happen.

I used to work at Lifeline of Ohio Organ Procurement years ago and it was actually kind of sad to know it didn't happen that often.

Have you ever read "Stiff" by Mary Roach? It's an eye opener and actually kind of funny in parts.

One thing I also want is to be cremated (or freeze dried if it becomes popular here). No need to waste space or money putting me in a box in the ground.

I've never read it but I just looked it up and it definitely sounds like something I will have to check out this summer!

I'm claustrophobic and being buried alive is my worst nightmare. I am definitely leaning towards cremation. If they want to bury me afterwards, that's fine - at least by then I will undoubtedly be 100% irreversibly dead!
