Default shark food vs viking funeral... you make the call

Im planning ahead for the end lol

Where i live the locals take their dead for a boat ride and weight the corpse, then run out to deep water in a funeral procession of small boats, and dump the body into deep water for the sharks and other fish to feast on. These people dont have the coin for a big funeral so it works for all involved.

I say F that... i want a viking funeral!

They lay you out in a small wooden boat on top of a bunch of palm fronds and other plant matter that will burn, then pour a bunch of lard, grease, oil, or whatever over the plant matter and the body, then push you out to roll out with the tide then shoot a flaming arrow to ignite the flammable stuff... the boat burns to the waterline and sinks, end of the line...

most of the affluent people i know dont have gaudy big funerals but cremate the body and dump the ashes where their loved one wanted them deposited, and have some sort of gathering or party... a month or so after their loved ones passing...

I want my buddies and employees to have a big beach blowout party/rave with a viking funeral as part of the event....

Of the two... which would you pick? Rm

No question, Viking funeral. I think the first one is training the Sharks to eat humans like they discovered in India on one of the River Monsters episode.

There has not been a shark attack any where near the island as far as i know.

One of the islander did however lose half of all his fingers on one hand to a tiger shark about a hald hour from the island in deeper water. He was spear fishing and the tigershark swan in from the side and stole is catch and half of the 5 fingers holding it... then went on his way...

It was huge catfish in India on freshwater rivers. They send the bodies down river on a burning raft but most of the body ends up being eaten by the huge catfish. On that episode he was investigating large fish pulling swimmers under never to be seen again.

Take me out, push me over...I could care less, I'll be dead. I told my wife to call my dumpster subcontractor, have one dropped off, throw me in, throw some crap over it, tip the driver/yard dude and be done with it, funerals are for the living.
