kara: btw jia a lot of people are not on board with the moon option
jia tolentino: dang
just me and emma then
Emma Carmichael: jia, i'm ready for the moon trip right now, say the word
Madeleine Davies: die on the moon?!
i hate space
Emma Carmichael: how can you be so sure??
kara: I think you guys needed a longer lifespan for that option to be appealing
It's 2014, 65 is a bit young
Madeleine Davies: i once got into an actual fight with a friend because i said space travel was stupid
and i stand by that
kara: Although I guess arguably life is all downhill after 65
Emma Carmichael: 65, i'm out
i'll choose organ flushing on the moon
you get to go to the moon!
kara: Just go to the moon later!
Madeleine Davies: the moon is a rock with nothing on it
Emma Carmichael: THAT'S NOW HOW THIS GAME WORKS
Erin Ryan: i feel like i don't know any of you moon people at all
Emma Carmichael: maddie, counterpoint: the earth is garbage & full of garbage ppl
Erin Ryan: why would you want to go to the moon
the moon is the earth but without cool stuff
and your family is very far away
Emma Carmichael: i'll send you guys a postcard
before my skull caves in or w/e
Erin Ryan: i'd like to die right away at age 65 i don't want to have a poorly attended funeral and most of my friends will still be alive then
Madeleine Davies: hahaha
Erin Ryan: if you live a long time, by the time you die there's nobody left to mourn you. so 65 it is.
kara: I plan on being laid in state
so that won't be a problem
hillary: I wanna be cremated and dumped over the Golden Gate Bridge I think
Emma Carmichael: lol
fun friday talk
hillary: ha, I was just thinking that
Madeleine Davies: i think i want a green burial
kellyfaircloth: the moon seems limited, i want to go to mars
hillary: How Jezebel Would Like to Die and Be Buried
kellyfaircloth: as long as i get there before elon musk
Madeleine Davies: where they dump you in the woods without a casket and allow the elements to have at you
kellyfaircloth: don't want to live there if it's with tech zillonaires
Kate Dries: yea the green burial thing sounds chill
hillary: "elements" Maddie?
Madeleine Davies: 1. it is the only way to guarantee an after life
hillary: softer language for rabid animals
Emma Carmichael: what is a moon death if not an element death
Kate Dries: cremation and then scattering of ashes is a good second bet
Madeleine Davies: 2. the animals deserve it
Emma Carmichael: "guarantee"
kara: that's what my dad wants kate
Erin Ryan: oh i'd be stoked if a wolf dug me up and ate me
kara: but he wants us to keep the ashes
which I don't plan on doing
Erin Ryan: i could literally become a puppy of a wolf
Kate Dries: oh i am NOT into that
you gotta scatter
kara: I definitely will
hillary: Keep them Kara?
kara: he won't know
Kate Dries: if any of you guys have questions about whether you can scatter ashes at the grand canyon
let me know
i have answers
kara: well imagine the man who raised me
he could have been kidding
Madeleine Davies: sorry to be this person, but cremation is really bad for the environment!
hillary: what? why?
kara: lol whaaat?
Kate Dries: yea it is
Madeleine Davies: not that you should tell your dad that
hillary: LIES Maddie
Kate Dries: it takes a lot of energy
Kate Dries: to burn the body
Emma Carmichael: maddie you are really debbie downering this lively conversation about death
Madeleine Davies: i just mean for your personal choices
Kate Dries: you know what's not bad for the environment tho
kara: i'm telling him you said that
Erin Ryan: yeah this is like varsity level debbie downering
Kate Dries: just like sticking your body on a pyre and letting it burn
hillary: "elements" kate, that's what's not bad
kellyfaircloth: you guys have all given this a lot of thought
kara: fire is an element
make sure to include this transcript in your wills folks
Madeleine Davies: "the amount of non-renewable fossil fuel needed to cremate bodies in North America is equivalent to a car making 84 trips to the Moon and back… each year."
kara: yeah but how many bodies
Emma Carmichael: real death scenarios
Madeleine Davies: you guys should read that Ask a Mortician book
kara: people who play instruments in public...
kellyfaircloth: i long for death just looking at that picture
