    Company fills shotgun shells with cremains?!?!?

    "Honor Your Dead Loved Ones by Stuffing Their Ashes in a Bullet and Shooting It" (from the Gizmodo article.)

    Here's a company that will load shotgun shells with the ashes of cremated loved ones:

    And here's an article in Gizmodo about it:

    Actually, I can think of a few people I wouldn't mind doing that to, but they aren't loved ones.

    Well, if you love guns and shooting, I can't think of a more fitting way to prepared than to be blasted out of a double barrel into the atmosphere and be eyternal mixed with gun powder and lead, floating out there in the ozone somewhere.

    You make it sound so.... peaceful. And deep. Kinda makes me want to go for it. (Not for a long time yet, but still)

    Not really a "novelty" just another twist on something that is being done to human ashes for a long time. Ashes have been "scattered" in a lot of ways.

    There is a company (who for a big price) will but some of the ashes in a container and send it into outer space.

    Although the "shotgun" method is interesting. Maybe just put the whole urn into a 19th century cannon and blast away!

    That may be the "new" thing for a whopping send off.

    It's cheaper than having them made into diamonds ($14,000/carat)

    Why do I have the feeling that when I pass, my remains will be fired out of a potato cannon?

    I need to make an addition to my will. I don't want to spend eternity smelling like campfire, baked potato and Aquanet. :)
