<snip> I have decided to build my own coffin <snip> Would 4/4 pine be OK
or should I go with 5/4? If anyone has any other suggestions I would be
happy to learn them.
Well, my personal preference is cremation - for various reasons.
Orf course, by that time, it won't be up to me, it'll be up to my sons.
But, hopefully they will do it, then they won't be spending money that
could be put to better use, by them.
Well, if you're gonna plan that far ahead, I'd say pick people, in
advance, that you detest, to be your pallbearers. That'll probably make
them happy carrying you to your grave. But, when you make the casket,
I'd say use the thickest, heaviest, wood you can get, and then pour
concrete, or something heavy, in the bottom of the casket. Then the
joke will be on them.
Shhh... that's the sound of nobody caring what you think.
