I'm curious what the other others are. What else is there besides being burned, buried, frozen, or cut up and distributed?

Loot me of usable organs, then burn up what's left.

I suppose it's possible that, one day, they'll be able to freeze you in a way that you could be brought back, and that the process of freezing and then the following storage would be affordable. It would be worth it to take that chance. But anyone who's frozen today has probably suffered severe cell damage. And I don't even want to think what it costs to run a cryo tank per year, for how many years? And in the future, when there are 40 billion people living like ants under a One World totalitarian government... who is going to want to revive someone from the past, other than as a curiosity? The idea that you're going to wake up one day and made young and beautiful and immortal and handed the ability to lead an easy life is a pipe dream.
