Don’t want to be buried? Then Donate Your Body To Science!

Don’t be stingy with your corpse. Let’s help de-clutter those overcrowded cemeteries. 

If you’re not being buried, cremated, shot into outer space, or sent to Hillary Clinton’s juicebox factory for liquefaction, consider donating your body to your favorite medical school of choice

The University of Michigan’s Anatomical Donations Program will happily accept your body after death. Be a true Wolverine. Go all the way. Gooooo Blue! 

Donating your body to science helps medical schools produce more competent doctors and their experiments help society learn more about human health and medicine.

If you want to be cryogenically frozen in hopes of being reanimated 100 years from now so you can scare your future relatives with practical jokes and hauntings, get your corp-sicle frozen at the Cryonics Institute in Clinton Township, Michigan

Follow in the footsteps of eccentric British philosopher Jeremy Bentham and have your embalmed body on display in perpetuity. Bentham died in 1832. Right now, he’s sitting in the South Cloisters at University College London. People often drop by to see the body, wax head (and his real head at his feet), ask him for advice, read their lame poetry to him and more.
