I wish to donate my organs, tissue, skin, bones, as much as possible. Medical science offers us the opportunity to transform countless lives for the better. All we have to do in exchange is donate our bodies after we are done with them. As such I see no reason to avoid donating. For those who feel slightly queasy about donating their bodies, just remember that decomposition isn't exactly an attractive prospect either. Surely it is a more attractive idea to be helping a child regain their sight, giving a parent a few more years to spend with their family, or perhaps just allowing a drunk a second chance.

A perhaps less noble idea is that I would like my brain plastinated, kept in my skull and put on display in a bell jar. I doubt anyone will honour that request however.

You and I have the same views, but I think you put yours a bit more eloquently. Who knows, mayhap we will influence at least one or more?

Thank you. I do enjoy broadening the opinions of others.

As your wife I call dibs on your body. I'm all for organ donating but your body cavity belongs to me. I'll have you stuffed and mounted.

I'm thinking of putting the "real" in Real Dolls

I think you only need the skin for taxidermy. Skin can be used to help burn victims however, I'd quite like to help burn victims.
