Prepare Your Death With A Designer Gravestone

Dead: Designer gravestone at a cemetery.If you must die, then at least use a stylish designer gravestone…

As American writer Robert Heinlein impressively recorded:

"A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly.

Specialization is for insects."


(Robert Heinlein)

So dying a little more gallantly is now possible with this designer gravestone.

Whatever gravestone it will finally be, the pretty unpleasant question for most of all is (although some might actually live forever…):

Are you willing to be sponged out,
erased, cancelled, made nothing?
Are you willing to be made nothing?
Dipped into oblivion…

Anyway, you're reading this so you're probably still alive. (Maybe you're dead already, and this is just a dream…!) Therefore, consider this: Fear kills more people than death! Which leads us to the well-known battle-cry of the Sioux:

"Today is a good day to die!"


(Battle cry of the Sioux redskins)

(Actually this quote is the English bastardization of the common Sioux battle-cry  "Nake nula wauĊ‹ welo!" which really means: "I am ready for whatever comes." It was meant to show the warriors were not afraid of the battle or dying in it.)
