"cementeries"

Saw a movie last night, "The Limits Of Control" mostly because it was a Jim Jarmuch film, you have to be a huge film making fan to endure this film as it has no real plot or character development, ti is just a study on film making "cool techniques, style and tools".

It had a pretty good recurring line:

"If you think you are better than anyone go to the cemetery and you will see that everything is dirt"

It made me wonder about something.

Overpopulation is a thing that keeps coming up as a huge problem to worry about?

Human beings for a very long time have born and expired in this planet, probably millions every single day, from a long time ago we have buried our dead, for a good part of this time we where buried directly into the ground and became part of it, then we encased our dead in "boxes" and this has been going for a very long time, worms might get to us still but those boxes stay buried taking a share of the world's space and it is now purchased, no longer it is for free, well in "developed countries".


The "CIA" estimates that over 50 million folks die every year, twice as many are born... worldwide and this has been going on for some time, it adds up!

So, when those billions of buried caskets are going to consume all the world's real state?

    Do not meddle in the affairs of dragons, for you are crunchy and taste good with ketchup.

    "When I die, I want to be buried in Louisiana so I can remain active in politics." - Huey Long. Same quote for Chicago - Rep. Charlie Rangel

    No casket for me, I want my remains cremated, and the ashes dumped in Al Gore's swimming pool. I want Tipper to go for a swim and cream "AL! There's something in the water!" Then they have to drain the pool and refill it and it ruins their whole weekend.

    In most countries, bodies aren't interred long-term in cemeteries, but after a period of time are exhumed and re-interred in mausoleums, large crypts, and the like.

    So when you buy a "plot" it is not "yours" or your family to keep, you are actually renting it?

    From my understanding, yeah. They do something similar in New Orleans.

    The answer to the question you have 'raised', (no pun intended) is in the title to your post.

    Cementeries

    Cremate the dead, take them to a cementery ( a place that makes cement) and use them as a substitute for sand.

    People can then walk around, point to a building and say things like " My dad helped build that office block/freeway/dam/wharf, I have concrete proof of that!. He was a real 'Brick'."

    Those who die from other than natural causes, ie mortarlly wounded for example can be used to make mortar to hold the 'bricks' in place .
    Still enjoying the trip of a lifetime and making the best of what I have.....

    Don't laugh. They're using the cremains to make artificial reef habitats.

    they will probably do something like the did in Paris. Just stack the bones up underground and make way for the liviing.

    "Earth to Earth" You can buy family plots at cemeteries for generations to use, there aresome here over 5 centuries old waiting for more family members to "join in".

    There is a theory that makes some sense to me that the world, long ago was about half the size it is now and all the land mass was one continuous piece that came apart into sections due to the earth's grow, if you look at a present world map and project where the land masses would meet if it all was a half it's size circle it all matches up too much to ignore this.

    After reading this I always questioned from where all that extra matter came so for the planet to become twice it's size, living things being buried and becoming part of the planet still IMO is not "the answer" as they grow from using part of the same planet for nourishment?

    Excellent, Alec. I like your thinking.

    But, to the original post, my only wish is that I be buried face down, and I don't mean so that I can be used for bicyle rack, either.
