Morbid and weird post of the week

What to so with your dad’s ashes?  Keith Richards says "I snorted my father" and more.

"The strangest thing I’ve tried to snort? My father. I snorted myfather," Richards was quoted as saying by British music magazine NME. "He was cremated and I couldn’t resist grinding him up with a little bit of blow. My dad wouldn’t have cared," he said. "… It went down pretty well, and I’m still alive." (HT:  AP news via Billboard: Keith Richards: "I snorted my father.")

How about making a diamond out of your dad’s ashes?

A German woman’s plan to turn her dead father’s ashes into a diamond was thwarted Tuesday by her grandmother. (HT: BERLIN (Reuters) via Flowerdust who has a dialog started about this news piece )

How about wearing your pet’s ashes around your neck?

I am pretty sure that I do not want ANY of these treatments upon death.

  1. my friend was cremated last year and it became quite real to me that after he sat in a box in his wife’s closet for nearly 4 months that those are just ashes and not the soul or spirit of my friend. so in that way… it is not that they snorted or want to make a diamond out of a PERSON they loved. it’s just gross. human remains, dude. that’s just sick.
