My plan following my inevitable demise has long been to be cremated and have my ashes dumped into Amity Creek from the seventh stone bridge along Seven Bridges Road in Duluth, Minnesota so they eventually end up in Lake Superior some two miles downstream. But now, after watching this nifty and informative video detailing how to become a fossil, I may reconsider and just have my intact carcass dumped into the creek so it ends up at the bottom of the Great Lake and gets covered by sediment that eventually turns my bones to stone. Who knows? - some future reader of this post may be able to view my fossilized remains at some museum exhibit.
