Even if they did take the whole eye a funeral home would be able to patch it up so it looks normal for viewing. Just bung a pingpong ball in there and close the eyelid over it! Nobody does open-eye dead body viewing do they? That would be creepy. Viewings alone give me the willies, let alone viewings with the deceased viewing right back at me....

Also I want my organs donated. Whatever is left I want to be fed to pigs, who in turn will be turned into delicious pigmeats like bacon, ham and salami.

There should be options
[ ] Not a donor
[x] Organ donor
[x] But not for medical students to play with
[x] and don't listen to my stupid family

Dont worry, being an organ donor is in no way the same thing as donating your body for study. They go through thorough counselling, and most of them are old scientists :thumbsup:

Could there be a market for "eaten by pigs" as a form of eco-burial? The family could then get the pet pig back and either keep it as a pet or eat it for Christmas.

It's simple really. Discuss the matter with your family now. When your time (eventually) comes, it won't be a surprise and they won't be trying to make a difficult decision while dealing with the grief/stress of your (impending) death.

the problem is not the permission as said but getting it in time to have useful donor bits

However theres many people dying every year because the supply is much less than demand. Infact only ~30 people donate their organs a year. Yet probably the majority of us have "organ donor" on our drivers license.

The reason behind this low conversion rate is because the organ procurement guys arent allowed to go near donor candidate until the donors family are around to consent (often by the time the family is available the organs are no good to use anyway), then theres the families who say no, usually cos they are emotionally stressed, and primarily cos the donor in question never took the time to discuss it with his family.

I was thinking about it today, why are we letting dozens (if not hundreds) of organs going to waste every year from people who said on their license they want to, when we could skip the extra formalities and just go ahead and take them?
To the individual/family it sounds like a massive violation of rights, however its somewhat like paying income tax - in the end its for the benefit of greater society.


Your thoughts? :eh:

(not talking about taking them from people who say no on drivers license here)...

Im pissed about this too, cos if I ever get to the state when someone else can use my organs cos I dont need them anymore and Ive said so on my license then thats my decision and the family shouldnt have any say in it, whether I have discussed it with them or not!! :angry:

They're my organs, I say what happens to them at all times, whether Im alive or dead!
Course Id rather die cos Id worn them all out at 105, than be run over by a rednek in an SUV tomorrow, but thats a whole different story! :D

Just as long as the people in the hospital don't know I'm an organ donor when I turn up half dead in the emergency room.

You'd get far better longevity out of Dura-Ace anyway. If you use BBB then you will be dead tomorrow due to excessive inhalation of a buddies flatulence.
