LifeGem

Today and tomorrow I want to post 2 videos of 'fantasy funerals' which I saw in my class last week at Houghton. I will provide some of the most interesting quotes below. Warning, this video may make you laugh and/or cry:




"It's the carbon of someone you love... turned into a diamond"
"Now they're available in other colors... even clear"
"He had blue eyes... I can make it into a pendant!"
"I can walk up to people and say... Meet my husband"
"Expect to pay $3000-$20,000 per life gem"
"Some clients are now (buying) for their pets!"

Weird.

When I die, I hope they just bury me. I don't want to be part of anyone's jewelry collection.

Yikes. I've told my peeps to cremate me and dump me off a moutain somewhere...I don't want to be turned into a diamond! That's just weird, but to each their own. If that's what helps them cope, and they can afford it, well, ok...
