Ashes: not just for lakes and mountains any more


The “Mental Floss” blog posted an interesting article a little while back called “Oh, the places your ashes will go!” As it turns out, there are many ways that people have arranged for a more unusual final resting place: mixed into ink and used to illustrate a comic book; mixed into fireworks; mixed into the plastic on a Frisbee; and into space. Some options that anyone can order (for a fee)? Have your ashes turned into an ocean reef or made into a diamond. These days, there are infinite possibilities for ensuring your memory lives on.
