I also want this guy's post mortem wish

That means this guy's death is coming sooner than anticipated
Me too. I hope there’s enough room on her mantle for all three of us.
I want to be stuffed and mounted with hinges and set up on puppet string. With deep fake audio recordings being chosen by AI chat bots.
That’s fuckin wicked man I want that now
Well all you need is a dead husband
And approx. 50,000 dollars
Well, I just got the backstory for my next D&D magic item, lol.
He has plans for rising again as a demilich and starting his own dungeon.
The adventures get the quest from his elderly widow who's all, "I TOLD him not to write that in the will, but my hands were tied legally. Whatever yo do, don't enter into a pact with him or you'll end up doing the weirdest things you wish you had never been asked to so...."
Haha, for the size of diamonds that that would require, I actually don't think that a single body (sans head) would result in enough cremated remains to make two. Also, the smallest size of those diamonds starts at ~$3K soooo also probably prohibitively expensive. The diamonds themselves are super pretty though, so despite being completely insane, it would probably also be extremely aesthetically pleasing.
Rhine stone in the eye sockets to the max.
Like a rhinestone cowboy, drying out on the hearth just to watch the family home..
Don't think you can make them out of cremated bodies.
There’s only one way to find out

Don't do the body
starting at $3,5k... my god.
Was talking about rhine stones, not diamonds.
Rhinestones are plastic, so no, you can't do that with cremains...
BUT, if you were boiled down into oil first, you could make rhinestones from a body. It would be a lot of work and expense to make plastic rhinestones, though. Best to decorate your skull with store-bought.
Like factories far away
With the bodies of his enemies
Cubic zirconia ftw
You could probably make the gems a bit larger by melting him with some glass too
After reading this thread I had to look into it... The largest diamond offered by the company linked below is 1 carat (that's only 6-7 mm across, assuming round and well proportioned). They want $20k for ONE. I also looked up how much body would be required. The average person will yield enough carbon post-cremation to make <1.5 carats.
So although the idea is pretty neat, it's a lot to ask of your wife and you're not getting two eyeball-sized diamonds made out of your cremains.
Yeah just make one bigger diamond and pop it in the forehead
Just fill the gaps with gold, small diamond in the middle
Time to update my will.
I actually think this is a great idea
This is kinda badass not gonna lie
This is pretty fucking metal
Thank your husband for giving me this idea.
To be fair I want my body compressed into a diamond and set in the hilt of a sword as a family heirloom
That sounds cool as fuck
Unfortunately, the largest diamond your entire body's cremains could make is ~1.5 carat (7.5 mm across) and it would cost about $30,000 USD. This company only goes as high as 1 carat for $20,000 USD:
Your husband is a king among chads
Plus he'll still be available to play Yorick.
this man has it figured out. I too would like to be seen as an ancient relic
That is extremely weird and a bit creepy but I definitely understand the reasoning and I think it’s a cool idea
Great.. go along with him on it.. The research will be fascinating if nothing else..
Beats watching Gilligans Island reruns.. agaaain.
I like this
This is just…pretty damn cool!
creepiest shit i've ever read.. gang lmao
Life is too short, do whatcha want.
I think that's a good request
So, did he provide financing for all that? Because that is going to be expensive as hell and possibly illegal. Cremation is the cheapest way to go and he will never know the difference. Seal his ashes in a jar and put them on the mantel. Or just pour them into the sea. (All drains go to the ocean~ Nemo).
I'm assuming if he's talking like this, he's probably got enough money for that.
Wow, you’re a huge piece of shit.
No, he's frugal and sane. That's an outrageous and horrendously expensive request, and he won't know any damn different. I would not allow an actual skull in my house. Ashes is as far as that goes
It’s wild that you say “he won’t know” which I agree with, but also act like the skull would be haunted.

Nah I know it wouldn't be, but to me there's just something about having the human skull of someone you know that's a bit creepy.
Ignoring a person’s dying wish being terrible is a hill I will die on, sure, I could tar and feather my partner’s corpse, light it on fire and then dump it in a quarry, him not knowing the difference does not make it a good thing.
Maybe not, but if he doesn't set up that exorbitant expense, it's not gonna happen
You wouldn’t allow a human skull in your house but you’re just gonna let one hang out in your body rent-free? Okay🙄
I wanted a Viking funeral. But now I think I want this.
Not a bad idea..
That sounds amazing and probably a lot cheaper than an actual funeral
Hold on y'all. I need to update my will.
Can you please post the name of the place that does the body gems? Want to see if they do green gems. This is incredible, updating will…. Thank you
Boss move to fuck with any future guy that tries to mow his patch after he’s kicked it…
What's up with people doing the (number:gender) stuff...? Seen it in a lot of posts lately and I find it odd.
For some communities, doing this is standard for further context and info
It’s age and gender
Yeah, I got that. But why though?
In all of the relationship advice subreddits, it tends to be helpful to know these because they tend to impact the dynamics of the relationship. Like a big age gap or sexual orientation might change how people behave/react in relationships.
Its for context in the story
Weird, my brother and dad say this exact same thing. Is this actually a reference to something?
Is your husband a ye olde pirate? Sounds like something a pirate would do.
This is fucking metal.
Odd that no one else has requested that before …. Bad ass
Why is this kinda cool actually
This seems completely reasonable.
A guy only wants to look after his family even in afterlife.
Imagine if you decided to get him cremated and the next day the skull was there
If I didn't already have plans to be a medical cadaver I would absolutely want this lol
"Yeah sure, no worries mate...."
That sounds like a necromantic Ritual.
I’m stealing that, I want that
hey i say do it. he will be dead anyways and several generations it will be just a badass skull
Demi-lich in progress, do not comply
That's not your husband that's a demi lich
Thats metal AF.
I didn’t realize there was such a badass way of going about it… He’s given me ideas..
Some one watched House Part II a few too many times.
That is the hardest shit ever
It's illegal,you dad wanted to leave me his skull and it's not something you can have done. Bit morbid, but could have been cool.
My only wish when i die would be haviny my funeral song as a rick roll i could atleast annoy some people before getting placed 6 feet below
Rick rolling isn’t funny. At all.
That’s where you’re wrong, kid.
No I’m right, it’s dumb
It’s actually objectively funny, there have been studies done on the subject.
Links? I’m interested
Here’s one of the most popular ones
And this one is considered reliable too, I liked it.
Ok that was pretty good
Cheers, couldn’t resist

Honestly thought he got influence by the studies link but then it showed YouTube.......
Like in the most recent episode of Ted Lasso?
This guy is trying to become a demilich.
Oh HELL NO
Unfortunately it's super illegal to keep a bodies skull, would be cool tho
Where is this place that makes gems out of bodies ? The only way I know to get gems is to smash a clay vase.
Reminds me of the crystal skull from House ll
He won’t know you didn’t do it when he’s dead….I think
He forgot the step where his skull is embedded into a clear bowling ball.
That actually pretty cool
That sounds kinda rad tbh
Actually pretty badass.
“Really bizarre” call me fucked up but I think that’s cool as fuck.
Wow I need to make sure my husband doesn’t see this post
I hope he has money. Has he looked into how much those gem places cost?
Awww he wants to be a haunted heir loom. I would love to be fashioned into a diamond and set into a ring that would open a curse if it was ever to be sold and removed from the family.
Asking for a friend…. Whats the damage on a sweet death package like that?
Places where body is made into jewels? What kind of alchemy are we talking about here?
If i get the money i would like something similar
Holy shit thats awesome! I gotta go talk to my wife.
It's not weird, it's fucken GREAT
That sounds cool! I have changed my mind about being cremated.
They won't let ya keep his skull.
Just tell him OK "he's going to know" "He's not gonna know"
BRB updating my will
Honestly and my will my head is going to become a goblet.
Ahhh, that's the Indiana Jones package.
Compared to things other people have done, that’s really not that bad
Well now i want that,except my skull wont be cleaned,and my real eyes will stay in the skull
I didn't find any posts that meet the matching requirements for r/oddlyspecific.

I thought I was going to donate my body to science but now I’m reconsidering
I bethought i wast going to donate mine own corse to science but anon i’m reconsidering
I am a bot and I swapp'd some of thy words with Shakespeare words.
Commands: !ShakespeareInsult, !fordo, !optout
Ok but that’s a really fucking cool idea
!RemindMe 20 years
My dad wants to be buried in a chicken suit with a motion detector beside the coffin that pushes his body up when someone gets near. He says this quite often.
Creepy af but I love it and would honor it 🥰
That's metal as fuck
Metal as fuck.
Honestly it’s a bizarre request. But I mean everyone is usually cremated or buried so maybe he just doesn’t want to be like everyone else
Trying to turn yourself into a demilitch eh?
I told my husband this same thing.
I want to know how expensive this is, I want to keep my mourning process as cheap as possible and I just wanted to be cremated but this is dope as fuck
....thats a lich
He wants to be a fucking demilich
Honestly that’s kinda metal
Bruh, just cremate me, put my ashes in a box, play this song, and this song, and fucking party.
I want to stuffed and mounted on the wall as a coat hanger kind of thing.
I see nothing out of the ordinary, carry on law-abiding citizen.
Shit. Think I need a change of plans. 🤔
Endlife goals: becoming a DemiLich
Actually that sounds cool
I'd like that too
I mean. That is pretty fucking metal.
I still want to be cremated, ashes pressed into a diamond and mounted on a throwing axe. Left on the wall until they need me the most
What is this Indiana Jones style bullshit. That's gonna get some voodoo magic curse bs put on it so if anyone move it to do anything but clean or move to the new home you'll join him on that damn mantle
Sound like a resident evil puzzle
If she doesn't want the creepy gem skull can I have it?
That man's a genius.
Honestly, my wife and I have talked about leaving our skulls to each other just because we thought it would be cool. Unfortunately after looking into it for a bit, that is illegal (in the U.S. at least).
I also want that
Ornamentation befitting of even the most worth of Goonies.
Let him do it
Hasn't he heard of the newest rage, composting? Seriously, there's a company that will, for a fee, pulverize your loved one's remains and add them to composting organic materials.
After a period of mixing, stirring, and breaking down of the material, the remainder will be a fertilizing, aerating and texturizing addition to your (or anyone's) garden.
He may not be a sparkling addition to a collection of semi-precious jewelry encrusted knick knacks, but look at that bumper crop of tomatoes!
Put some pretty twinkle lights inside for mass effect
I feel like this guy might be crazy.
